comment “Size” is to “resize” as “capacity” is to what?
FWIW for c++ standard containers reserve has this relationship to capacity. If you can afford more than one word "ensure capacity" or "set capacity" might be fitting.

comment How can I understand “thirty-seconds of a dollar”?
You can see bonds prices quoted in 1/32th increments here. As of 2011-10-23 you can see the 5 year note with a 1% coupon quoted with a price of "99-21¾" = 99 + 21.75/32 resulting in a yield of 1.07%.
