okay, so no **** , my algebra teacher came out and told us "its true, youll never use algebra in real life" so, of course the whole class freaks out. when she finnaly calmed us down i asked her "why do they tech it then?" and she said "cause it makes you think." so thats why they teach algebra

I use it every day. literally every day, I wouldn't have a job if I couldn't do algebra because it is so commonly used. somebody hit me with a cool SCIENCE reaction pic. (i'm a scientist)

Timmy is out buying apples! He buys 15(x+20) apples! How many apples does he buy if X = 26?
That's right! Timmy buys 690 apples, and no one ever questions why he buys so many. THE END.

You don't use a lot of the stuff you learn in school. In fact, you forget most of it. However, school:
1. Helps your ability to learn new things in the future
2. Gets you ready for a workplacelike environment
3. Teaches you to cope with working alongside other people
4. Acts like a ladder to higher learning necessary for your job
And, for those who drop out,
5. Teaches you when to give up

Maths in school isn't taught to you to be used in an
everyday situation, learning maths enhances the part
of your brain which is used for problem solving and logic,
which is used on a very daily basis, maths in schools is
to train your brain, not so you can find x. Unfortunately
most math teachers, with all their problem solving and
logic, can't explain that this is infact what maths is for.
The only time you would need to know mathematical
equations is if you wanted to teach maths, be a scientist or
engineer (im sure there are a few more) but even that
maths is covered in college/uni.
So hopefully this answers
the question asked by kids and adults alike all over the
world "Why the **** do i need to know how to find x?".
