As well as being the system used in most countries around the world, as well as in most professions, the metric system is simple to use as it has a single set of base units to which prefixes can be added to increase the value in multiples of ten. For example, the base unit of length is the metre; a centimetre is one hundredth of metre and a kilometre is one thousand metres. The same prefixes are used for all metric units (so a kilogram is one thousand grams).
