If a truck driver were calculating the distance needed to get from one location to another, why is it important that he correctly convert from the U.S. to the metric system? Give a specific example of the errors that could occur if the driver fails to do this.

    How is this biology? Anyways, you need to convert correctly because for example the driver is travelling a distance, 1 meter is about 1 yard, and 1 mile is about 1760 yards. Incorrect distance could result in the driver not going far enough, or going too far.
