Customary System: Used mainly in the United States Metric System: Used in the rest of the world and in most scientific research and development.

Linear Units: Inches: Short lines Feet: Medium Lines Yards: Long lines Miles: Long Distances

Linear Units: Measure how long a line is including: length, width,distance, perimeter, area A ruler is a tool used for linear measurement

Linear Units: 12 inches = 1 foot 3 feet = 1 yd 36in = 1 yd 5280ft = 1 mile

Linear Units: Cm- measure short lines M = measure medium lines km- measure long lines

Linear Units: 100cm = 1 m 1000 m = 1 km
