I also knew that Kool-Aid packets were 25 cents each or that I could save money and get five of them for a dollar.Today, however, money management involves knowing more than which combinations of 10-cent, five-cent, and one-penny candies I can get for a dollar.The topic I have chosen to write about for this paper is how I use math in my life both as a child and as an adult.
