Some of these include finding the square footage of a home, determining the volume a container or deciding how much tile is needed to put in a new kitchen...

In Euclidean geometry the perpendicular distance between the rays
remains equal to the distance from P to Q as we move to the right.
However, in the early nineteenth century two alternative geometries
were proposed. In hyperbolic geometry (from the Greek hyperballein,

How is geometry used in everyday life? When you're studying a subject, the science of lines and angles can seem like nothing more than a dull exercise in formulas and predictability. In reality, geometry is at work everywhere you go. Whether you're aware of it or not, geometry quite literally shapes...

Elliptic geometry (sometimes known as Riemannian geometry) is a non-Euclidean geometry, in which, given a line L and a point p outside L, there exists no line parallel to L passing through p.
Elliptic geometry, like hyperbolic geometry, violates Euclid's parallel postulate, which asserts that there...

Do any of us realize the importance of maths in our daily life? This is a subject that is applied to every field and profession. Without the application of maths, no field or profession is complete. To help us realize this why don’t we imagine a world without maths?
