PAPER

THE METRIC SYSTEM WORKS WELL WHEN YOU USE DIFFERENT PIECES TOGETHER.

FOR EXAMPLE WHEN YOU FOLD AN A3 DRAWING IN HALF IT WILL FIT IN TO AN A4 ENVELOPE OR FOLDER

WHEN YOU FOLD AN A1 SHEET IN HALF IT MAKES AN A2 SHEET

WHEN YOU FOLD AN A2 SHEET IN HALF IT MAKES AN A3 SHEET

WHEN YOU FOLD AN A3 SHEET IN HALF IT MAKES AN A4 SHEET
