**PLEASE NOTE: NONE OF THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE IS POSSIBLE...
FOR THIS JUST TO ILLUSTRATE HOW NOTHING WITH INCH-POUND IS RELATED TO ANYTHING.

Let's imagine a person from another country or planet
wanted to know how you could make the old
"inch-pound non-system" easy to understand by
demonstrating how  Length, Liquid and Weight MIGHT
relate to each other in that archaic method of measurement.

 Imagine then, IF you could take the length of a yard and divide it by exactly ten equal parts... so we can make a cube container with those same equal sides to hold water... ...then by some strange course of events imagine again IF we could fill that cube container with water AND that cube contained the liquid of exactly 1 quart which, when placed on a scale weighed exactly 1 pound".  "You'd likely that's easy!        Let's go party!"      WRONG! THIS EXAMPLE SHOWS HOW NOTHING LOGISTICALLY RELATES in such an outdated non-system of inches, pounds, gallons, firkens, knoginheads or even barleycorns!  Just a lot of TIME CONSUMING complicated figures and fractions to memorize. OKAY... TRY TO CALCULATE in the "INCH-POUND SYSTEM" Is the solid of 16 oz. in bag of nuts the same as 16 oz. of liquid in can of juice? OR Try to add up in your head the total of 2/3+3/8+3/5 of an inch How about going shopping and trying to determine the best buy... 1-17 oz. can of a product for 63 cents, or 2-14.5 oz. cans for \$1.10 or maybe 3-16 oz. cans for \$1.49. And "lb" for pound? Come on now... Animals Are in Pounds! How about 3 feet in a yard... 12 inches in a foot? A foot is nowhere near the length of an average person's foot and blah, blah, blah. The American gallon originated as being the amount of wine in the British "Queen Ann's Wine Gallon". What's with that? The British abandoned that long ago!
