If you live in a metric country, and want to get to use dozenal, then this system gives you access to large numbers without too much trouble.

Counting does not really give you to really big numbers. This is why having good access to a ready source of simple numbers to convert is a good idea. We can use Wilberforce-Mann's names to distinguish these.

1. Time. Here we divide the day to 12 hours of 144 minutes of 144 seconds.

2. Length: LINN = 1 dm. Many of the values can easily be converted to decimetres, and converted to dozenal from that. So seeing 1.82 metres gives 18.2 dm = 16.3 Linn. Long distances are converted on the value that 1 mile = 1 D4 Linn = 2.0736 km. The sign coming up saying Xyz 40 km, gives 20.0 = 18 z Miles.

3. Speed. Since the Kine or Linn per second, becomes 2.0736 km / 2 hours, those black numbers in the red circle, etc, are simply converted. 60 km/h = 50 z KINE. It's a one-for one conversion.

4. Volume. The Litre is unchanged, but becomes a CAPP. A cup is 0.25 L = 1/4 L = 300 'millicapp'.

5. Weight. The Chogg or Pondd is a kilogram, so masses in kgs are converted as is. A weight of 150 Kg becomes 106{z} chogg.

6. Money. The money has been largely debased since the seventies, but one can reflect this by supposing 1 penny = (something near the us$ or €). You then are converting something like $ straight as a dozenal number. I use the same system with £sd where 1d = 1 $AU.
