Similarly, one foot is the same size as the average adult foot. Historically, this ranged from 11.8 to 12 inches across various civilizations. After standardization, it was decided that one foot would be 12 inches.

An inch is a common unit of measurement for small lengths in countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Japan. Inches are now commonly used to measure the size of a gadget's screen. In many parts of the world, radial wheel sizes are measured in inches as well.

Did you know that the metric system is based on decimal values? This means that each unit increases or decreases by a factor of ten.
