Default "Clicks" on a Scope adjustment

One "click" in a given direction (windage or elevation) is equivilent to 1/4 what?

Help me understand the click graduations on Scope adjusters, and the impact (inches) they make on elevation and windage.

(I wonder, if in Military terminology, that's where the idea of "clicks" came from when you'd here a soldier say, "It's 3 clicks.")

If my first shots with the 45-70 are (let's say) 3" left, and 1" low. I'll have to adjust the Scope with how many clicks (assuming to set the greater distance variant first) in either direction?

(By the way, are those knobs easily turn able by hand, or do you need a tool?
