Amongst a multitude of reasons why some examples are:-

For the measurement and area of land

For navigational purposes

For understanding the properties of 2 and 3 dimensional shapes

For construction and engineering purposes

For historical reasons because it links the past with the present

For educational reasons because knowledge of it helps in other aspects of math

### Why is important that your knowledge in geometry would be of big help in studying trigonometry?

Your knowledge in geometry would be a big help in studying
trigonometry, because trigonmetry involves the ratio of the sides
of a right triangle, something that is underpinned by geometry. The
pythagorean theorem is crucial here. Also, the angles are
important, and that is also underpinned by geometry.
