I see .. that's good to hear
although some of the stuff said are actually other courses to do in university such as statistics, programming,civil engineering.
What i was thinking is who hires mathematicians?

i was planning to do math in university so i talked to a math teacher, she told me that nowadays math doesn't have much work, if you do math you can only teach it, with rare exceptions. So i was wondering if people here could give me examples of what mathematicians can work in.
Even though it is not really a math problem, i thought someone here might know

use the pythagorean formula (a² = b² + c²)
a= hypotonuse
b= side
c= side
therefore
26² = 10² + x²
676 = 100 + x²
x² = 576
x = 24
