The customary system is made up of various numbers. (12 inches in a foot, 3 feet in a yard, 5,280 feet in a mile)--Most other counties use the metric system, so American scientists and doctors use the metric system also so they have a "common language of numbers" to share information and research around the world. You will always use the metric system in your science classes.
