As you know, everything in life involves math in one form or another. Growing up in the United States, you have been taught the American or English system of math. However, most of the rest of the world does not use this system. Rather, they use the metric system.
You may not even realize it but you have already been exposed to the metric system. Pick up any can of vegetables or a bag of cookies and you will notice two different measurement amounts listed. You will see ounces or pounds and you will also see grams. When you buy soda, do you buy a pint of soda or a half gallon or soda or a gallon of soda? No, you buy soda in liters. Grams and liters are part of the metric system.
The metric system is really a very easy system to learn. It is easy because it works in base 10 conversions. This is true for each type of measurement such as for length or distance, known as meters, mass or weight, known as grams, and volume, known as liters. However, to be able to convert in the system, you do need to memorize the order of the system. To help you with that, memorize the following little phrase.
