i think it is really interesting to see that the top 20 jobs all were closely related to math. all of the 20 jobs were closely related and math played the main role in them. it helped me become aware that you need math and that it is not just a boring subject. math is an important subject and should be taken seriously because we use it in our everyday lives. math is not only needed to succeed in life but also to prosper and further acheive your goals

This article really opens my eyes to math. I knew that many jobs are closely related to math, but I didn’t know many of the best jobs were. It was interesting to see what the top 20 best jobs were, and most of them pay really well. I know my future career in the medical field deals with math because science has some basic math in it. Since I want to work in the medical field. And I have to take a few math classes as well as science before I graduate from college.
