  • In mathematics context, the customary system refers to a set of weights and measures used for measuring length, weight, capacity and temperature.

The customary system for length and distances are measured in inches, feet, yards and miles.

CUSTOMARY UNIT CUSTOMARY EQUIVALENT

1 yard (yd) 3 feet
1 mile (mi) 1760 yards

The Metric System of Measurement

  • This system of measurement is being considered as the international decimal system of weights and measures, based on the metre for length and the kilogram for mass.
  • It is commonly used in France in 1795 and is now used officially in almost all nations in the world.
Length Weight Volume
1 km = 1,000 m 1 kg = 1,000 g 1 kL = 1,000 L
1 m = 0.001 km 1 g = 0.001 kg 1 L = 0.001 kL
1 m = 100 cm 1 g = 100 cg 1 L = 100 cL
1 cm = .01 m 1 cg = 0.01 g 1 cL = 0.01 L
1 m = 1, 000 mm 1 g = 1,000 mg 1 L = 1,000 mL
1 mm = 0. 001 m 1 mg = 0.001 g 1 mL = 0.001 L

Here’s a copy of customary-metric conversion chart. 

Customary Unit Metric Unit
1 inch 25.4 millimeters
1 foot 30.48 centimeters
1 yard 0.91 meter
1 mile 1.61 kilometers
1 teaspoon 4.93 milliliters
1 cup 0.24 liter
1 pint 0.47 liter
1 quart 0.95 liter
1 gallon 3.79 liters
1 ounce 28.35 grams
1 pound 0.45 kilogram

In converting larger units to smaller units, we multiply the number of larger units by the conversion factor for the appropriate smaller units.
