Does this make sense? Most people will not become engineers. Most people will only need basic math skills when they enter the workforce. When I was in school, they taught geometry, calculus, etc. However, personal finance and the math associated with personal finance were not taught.
I believe that the simple math is enough. Even if we cannot calculate the percentages, we can still manage our finances (calculator is our best friend). How come someone, who has $3000 net monthly income, can spend $4000 per month? Like we should not hope about our future income, we have to live based on what we have now. And I think clever people can calculate the difference between income and spending.
