# Why Finite Mathematics?

Please explain two things that I should learn before taking a Finite Mathematics class and explain those two things and why they would help me in real life or modern jobs.

One reason to take the course is that it can be applicable to biological sciences. Probability theory will teach you how to determine a certain level of confidence in that some chance event will happen. For example, statements "I hope Friday is a great beach day" can be evaluated by probability theory. This would be interesting to apply to real life events. It can also be important for biology because processes in biology are more often thought of as networks of interacting proteins, DNA, etc. This molecules have relationship with each other in defined ways. Finite mathematics is an excellent way of describing the relationships between molecules and limiting to type of ways molecules can interact with each other. For example in a plants capturing light from the sun. In your network you have molecules A and B. Maybe A interacts with B and also 1 2 4, positively but 7 and 8 negatively. It may also be true that B interacts with A, and B interacts with 1 and 2 positively, 4, 7, and 8 negatively. You can make types of relationship via Finite Mathematics. Finally compound statement have to do with the ability to understand set values to complex statements and determine if they are true or false using math. For example we could take the statement, "Jason will do well on the next exam and Susie will to poorly" and write that statement in terms of equations. I hope this helps you make your decision.
