Why is the metric system used instead of the English system?
Because the entire system has a base of 10, that makes it very easy to convert between different metric units.
The metric system is the English system well more like the Canadian system we used to use the imperial system in cananda but them switched to metric and now the U.S.A uses the imperial system and Canada uses metric USA can also use metric and Canada can also use imperial i hope this was useful to you! :)
Metric system is commenly used in scientific communities because it is more accurate than the standard English system of measurements.

The metric system is an international measurement system based on 10. France was first to adopt it in 1799 and it is now the basic measurement system used in almost every country in the world. The United States has yet to adopt it which is why…
