What makes the metric system easy to understand?

The metric system is based on the number 10. Every unit change, whether it be larger or smaller, is a multiple of 10. To change to a larger unit, simply multiply by 10. Do the reverse - divide by 10 - to change to a smaller unit. All metric units are changed like this.
