Question and answer
What are some reasons for having a basic understanding of both the English and the Metric system of measurement?
The rest of the world made the free decision to adopt the metric system while the U.S. decided to stay with the English Imperial system. Had the U.S. started to convert early, would there be neither significant costs nor difficulties. [ Now though, that the world is moving on but we chose stagnation, we are facing the consequences. In the 1980s Japanese cars became increasingly popular, simply
because they were the better product, and sale of U.S. cars declined because people just won't buy crap only because it's American. Fortunately the U.S. automotive industry understood, and the result is even better cars. Applying dogmatic traditions and blind vanity to a progressive economy just doesn't work. ]

What are the complete steps for solving a proportion?
Weegy: Step one (multiplication of the numerator of the first fraction and denominator of the second fraction) Step two (multiplication of the denominator of the first fraction and numerator of the second fraction) And, [ step three is beneath the fraction multiplication; it shows you how to set up the equation that you’ll solve next. Now, after the cross multiplication, you need to solve the equation. In this case, the equation is normal, and you can solve by dividing each side by 100 (to get x alone) ] (More)
