Something more common, Money. sure you could wing it with regular math, but with having Algebra under your belt you can blaze through those forms

You will love yourself to tears when you can use Vector-math to calculate
your til in a matter of 2 minutes and walk away with an idea of how much you just made the company.
without algebra, you can forget about trying to forcast sells/shopping holidays(days sales are abnormally hot), or even quickly figure out what item

Recreation: Pool(Analytical Geometry for English, Trig for Angled Bank Shots), Clue (indirectly), Poker, Gin Rummy, Ballistics whether for archery or
general marksmanship, or even Trying to make Game Enchancer Codes from a cpu memory address..
