RE: why do we need math?

Seriously? How does math help us in life??? Have you ever purchased a car? Want to know if you are overpaying? How much is 25% off when your big screen tv goes on sale? How much will you net when you are being paid $12 an hour at your crappy job and you have to pay 28% in taxes? How much will your rent be when the landlord has an 8% annual rental increase. Do you like to cook or bake? How much oil do you need when you double the recipe? How much cash do you need to bring when you make your purchase and it has a 6% Md tax added on… THAT’s how math helps us in life! ItĀ gives us the power so we don’t have to rely on someone else to tell us the answers!

Seriously, I can’t even believe somebody asked that question.
