    That algebra class came in handy for founders of Google and Apple.

    I’ve used algebra quite a bit, but I’ve never found any use for calculus.

    Course Rat probably failed Algebra anyway, so it’s no surprise he hasn’t used it since then.

    So many courses/subjects covered in school have never come up again in my life. Someone should be held accountable for wasting so much of my time. I should have spent more time studying that cute little cheerleader………

    People use algebra all the time and might not even realize it. For example, at the store, if you get 4 items for a dollar, how much does each one cost? 4x = 100; x = 100/4 = 25 cents each. Trivial example, but it is still algebra.

    A lot of math is logic and a way of approaching a problem and those skills apply in many different ways.

    I thought you needed to know Algebra to get into college?

    Ditto. Use algebra every time I do some renos around the house, can’t even remember what calculus was for. One thing I do remember- when we finally got to the end of 2 terms of calculus, the instructor introduced LaPlace Transforms and said: “This is what we use instead.” ARRGGGHHHH!

    i was so bad at any kind of math that my teachers over the years all would eventually just burst into tears at the mere sight of me…

    There was something about algebra that didn’t add up for me…

    I use it quite often, in a minor way, eg for working out the third side of a right-angled triangle when I’m designing some railing.

    @whitehound

    That’s trig or geometry depending on what method you use.

    Never said “If two oranges are $2, how much will I have to pay for a half dozen”?

    Nobody has every asked me to analyze Joe Stalin’s type of leadership or the date of the battle at Agincourt either.
