How does 12 inches to a foot and 5280 feet to a mile make more sense than 100 cm to a metre and 1000 metres to a km? It's all very simple.
I have to use and convert both a lot at work and metric is much more logically designed. Imperial measurements mostly just exist almost out of tradition these days.
0 degrees Celsius (32 F) is freezing for water and 100C (212 F) is boiling. Also makes perfect sense.
The Fahrenheit scale range makes way more sense. With Celsius you have to use decimals more to have a more precise temperature reading. With Fahrenheit if you use decimals you have an even more precise reading than Celsius, where you would have to use double digit decimals to have the same precision. Celsius still confuses me.
As for the metric system it makes makes more sense in some applications where precision is needed especially for weight and volume. However for everyday use the US or imperial system seems more practical.
It isn't more practical, you just understand it more than the metric system.
I gotta use both systems all the time so i have a good understanding of both. Usually when someone says they don't like the metric system or that it doesn't make sense, it's just a lack of understanding.
The Metric System makes more logical sense. Everything is in factors of 10. They pushed it hard back in the 70s, and as I was growing up, I thought this country would eventually switch over, but it never caught on like they wanted it to.
The measurement system we use is comfortable to us. Doesn't make it the most logical. 12 inches to a foot. Three feet to a yard. There's no consistency.
