### Math in the Real World

When are times that you use math in your life? Please list at least three areas of your life in which you have used math.

Then... go to the math instructor link here and explain what I=PRT means.

1. I think we use Math all day everyday. I just left the grocery store, where you have to weigh the veggies and fruit, look at the price per pound and "ADD" up how much I spent. Next write out the check and check to see if there is enough money in my account to cover it!!Subtract what I spent and move money from one account to the other to cover it.

6. we use math everyday in grocery stores, banking,cooking,bying things u need to find out how much u need to give to the store.how far u run,when u are driving,

7. PRT is principal,( amount of money borrowed) interest rate (per year) and time (in years to pay it back) So you buy a car and get a loan from the bank, you need to pay it back, but with a fee for using their money. That would be the interest and time given to pay it back.
