Definition Edit

The metric system is an international decimalized system of measurement, first adopted by France in 1791, that is the common system of measuring units used by most of the world.

Overview Edit

It exists in several variations, with different choices of fundamental units, though the choice of base units does not affect its day-to-day use. Over the last two centuries, different variants have been considered the metric system.
