Yeah, like :

5,280 feet = 1 mile
3 feet = 1 yard etc... you mean like that ?

When I was in grade school (I'm American btw), the teachers told us that the US would go metric for certain. I am disappointed that it hasn't. We are exposed to a bit more metric system than back then (the '70's in my case), but we are still using the old English system. Even the British (correct me if I am wrong ! please smile) are using metrics !

But I think the answer, Toyjons, to your question is that in America's case, it is part stubborness, and habit. Or arrogance and laziness, not sure.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.
