Justify why it is important to scientists to have a universal system of measurements.

What does this mean? Can someone help explain it to me? I'm doing some research but I'm still confused. Please help? Thanks

  1. Math is confusing when you're dealing with decimals, fractions, inches, feet, yards, meters, kilometers, millimeters, etc.

    Scientists use one system to avoid having to translate back and forth from one system to another.
