Mathematics is the study of quantitative relationships expressed in numbers and symbols. It focuses on mathematical concepts and theories and involves their formulation, testing, interpretation and practical application. Mathematics is usually referred to as pure (more theoretical and abstract) and applied (more practical problem solving).
