What is a metric system?
The metric system is the measuring system based on the meter, liter, and gram as units of length, capacity, and weight or mass. The easier way to memorize the metric system is by using the memorization line:
“King Henry Died by drinking chocolate milk”
King has K standing for Kilo
Henry has He standing for Hecto
Died has D standing for Deca
By had b standing for the basic unit in this case meter, liter or gram
drinking has d standing for deci
chocolate has c standing for centi
milk has m standing for milli
