Here are just a few examples: (*) You want to paint a large room in your house. The gallon-size paint can says that it covers 150 square feet. Your room is 20 feet by 30 …feet and has a ten-foot-high ceiling. How many gallons do you need? (*) You go to a furniture store and see a couch that you like. It is priced at $1,123.00, but it also has a red tag stating that it is on sale for 35% off. How much does it cost? You don't have a calculator with you, and all of the sales people are busy, but you do have a pen and some scratch paper with you. (*) You are cooking a holiday dinner for a bazillion people. The huge turkey weighs X number of pounds. The label says to cook it 20 minutes per pound. How long do you cook it? (*) Here's one that I actually used! You're building a gazebo not from a kit, but from an actual blueprint. It has roof joists that fit into a ring at the top, but they must be placed into the ring at exactly the right angle (angle X), or they will crack. You will use a temporary center support post, and jack it up to exactly the right height. But how high? You know the height of the columns, but not the distance in the center of the joists. Studying the blueprint, you see that the joists form a perfect triangle. Use trigonometry to calculate the length of the side opposite angle X. and add it onto the height of the columns to get your total height. These are just a few examples of how math is useful in everyday life! I think that math is fun, and can't understand why so many people hate it!

Math is relevant to everyday life because we have to use it with most jobs that we have and you have to use it when grocery shopping. Math is very useful and you should learn …it if you ever want to have a decent job. Personally, I HATE math but I know that I will need it everyday when I get older, so I have to do good and try hard in math even though i don't like it.

Math is used everyday for jobs in the world. Maybe you won't get a job that includes algebra, but you have to learn it anyway. Also, if you get a job with cooking you will nee…d math.
Yes everything involves math. Everything you do involves some math whether you do it voluntarily or not. Every step you take is a judgement of the distance that you wish to tr…avel. Waking up to your alarm clock in the morning is you judging the number of hours you sleep. Everything you buy or sell involves math.
The simple act of paying for a daily newspaper uses maths ! Without maths, how would you know (a) whether you've given the right money for the paper, and (b) whether you've be…en given the correct change (if you gave the shopkeeper too much money !
Though you might not think you need it - you DO !... How will you know... If the checkout operator gave you the correct change (and how would you know how much money to gi…ve them for what you've bought). ...If you've been paid the right amount of money for the hours you've worked. ...how much further you can drive on half a tank of fuel. These are just three examples - the list is endless !
