Take a simple example of day to day life. Sally wants to buy some things from the local grocery shop and takes certain amount of money with her, if she doesn’t know basic calculation then, how will she know whether the amount of money she is carrying is sufficient or not, or the total of things bought is correct or not, the amount of change received is correct or not.
If someone wants to start his or her own enterprise then apart from the calculations, the person should also know the big numbers and small numbers.
This knowledge of numbers is necessary not only for purchasing or for the functioning of business, but one cannot write every instance where this math is required, because in later life, it becomes a part of our lives, just like the air we breathe.
