INCH-POUND
Non- System

NONE OF THIS EXAMPLE BELOW IS POSSIBLE...
WE JUST IMAGINE  IT TO ILLUSTRATE
HOW NOTHING WITH INCH-POUND MEASUREMENT
IS RELATED TO ANYTHING.

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

 IMAGINE... 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!    Let's go party!"
