**DIFFICULTY OF THE IMPERIAL UNITS**

One inch is usually divided into 8, 10 or 16 parts: This particular ruler has 16 divisions

3
**DIFFICULTY OF THE IMPERIAL UNITS**

One inch is usually divided into 8, 10 or 16 parts: So, the smallest division = 1/16th of an inch

**Only one unit of measurement for each quantity**

The simplicity of the Metric System? SI For example: LENGTH: meter MASS: gram VOLUME: liter Only one unit of measurement for each quantity Imperial For example: LENGTH: mile, yard, foot/feet, inch… MASS: grain (≈0.65g), drachm (1.77 g), pound (453 g)… VOLUME: ounce (0.028 L), gill (0.142 L), gallon (4.55 L)… Copyright © 2010 Ryan P.

**We can do this using 2 methods:**

Any quantity we measure,(length, mass, volume…) consists of a number and unit 22.2 m If we are given a quantity in one type of unit, and we want another type of unit : 22.2 m = ? ft We must convert the units We can do this using 2 methods:
