Students often ask us how math is going to help them beyond the classrooms, how it is going to be useful for them to have a mathematical understanding. So, here we present

3 reasons why having basic math proficiency is essential.

1. Humans need mathematics: Whether it is for making planes fly in the sky or calculating the amount of money that will be returned after paying for the toy. Humans could not be the greatest species on the planet if it were not for the mathematical knowledge. We cannot separate maths from our lives as we know it.

2. Teaches logical and critical thinking Math teaches logic and order. One can expect predictable outcome and a precise set of steps to get to that result. It also teaches students to develop critical thinking abilities. An example would be when students are asked to explain how they arrived at the solution to a complex solution.

3. Math applies in every field No matter which field you choose to make a career in, you will be presented with problems that can only be answered by mathematics. Few examples of the mathematical applications include:

• Math tells chemists the amount of reactant to be added to get the desired amount of product.

• Math tells biologists the right amount and proportion of liquids to mix in order to have desired effects on the body.

• Math tells astronomers the distance between the Earth and Mars or how much fuel would be needed to travel to the Moon.

• Math tells the civil engineers how safe a bridge would be after construction or what would give us a stable building that can withstand earthquakes.

• Math tells a business owner the profits he is making and how good his business is going.

We being one of the best CBSE schools in Patna, believe in the achievements the students can have once they are equipped with the basic understanding of Mathematics. We have the best Mathematics teachers in the state to make sure that our students succeed in every phase of life.

Now, coming to the solution to the question asked earlier: 12

step1: Do multiplication first i.e 1 x 0 = 0 step2: Now add all, i.e; 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1x0+1= 12 Ans

This follows from the basic fundamental rule of BODMAS.
