Mathematics is relied on by lots of fields. Without the basics of mathematics we wouldn't be able to quantify anything or do calculations. Science and many other fields depend on it. I know some applications of mathematics but only some. I would like people to state areas in which math is used and what math is used. Provide examples if you can please.

Geometry, ratio, proportions and percentages. is used constantly in construction. Plasterers, carpenters etc all use it.

I prefer pure mathematics over applied

There is no applied mathematics without pure mathematics.

Applications: every area of science

You can apply pure mathematics lol. You like to think it's all abstract and pure. The beauty of it is you can apply it to multiple areas.

You can't apply something that doesn't exist. Without the creation of theoretical mathematics, there would be no applications.
