Metric System is Better

For all of those people who think the metric system is too hard, I have a question.

Without a calculator, how many inches in a mile?

Got the answer? It’s 5280 feet x 12 inches per foot.

Do it in your head
It’s 63,360 inches

How about a nautical mile?
6076 feet x 12 inches per foot totals 72,912 inches

Now, how many millimeters in a kilometer?
1000 millimeters per meter x 1000 meters per kilometer equals 1,000,000 millimeters.

Still think metric is hard?
