DID YOU KNOW?
that you can divide 1 meter
by exactly 10 equal parts
(10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm)...

then make a cube
(1000 cm
ณ) of it to fill with water...
and you will find that it contains exactly
1 L (1 liter)
(1000 mL
) of water...
and is the mass of exactly
1 kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g).
ALL SIMPLY RELATED IN 10!

 INCH-POUND Non- System PLEASE NOTE: NONE OF THIS EXAMPLE IS POSSIBLE... WE JUST IMAGINE IT TO ILLUSTRATE 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.
And then someone suggested...

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 say,
that's easy!

LENGTH, LIQUID and WEIGHT ALL RELATED?

Let's go party!"

...NOT SO!
THERE'S A BIG PROBLEM HERE
and HAS BEEN FOR A LONG TIME!
 NOTHING RELATES in such an outdated non-system of inches, pounds, gallons, firkens, knoginheads or barleycorns! Just a lot of TIME CONSUMING   complicated figures and fractions to memorize.

FOR THOSE WHO MAY SUGGEST DIFFERENT
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?

TRY THIS!
2/3+3/8+3/5 of an inch

How about going shopping and trying to determine
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 with "oz." for ounce?
What's with 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
.

Can you believe this?

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
it long ago!
It's WAS all nuts!

BUT WITH METRIC MEASURING IT WORKS
IN HARMONY WITH LIFE ITSELF!

The International System of Units is the Measurement Used in America
