when you play pool/billiards, when you need to climb a mountain or an incline, a slope w/e. Measuring your room say when you need to get new carpets of a new floor of w/e. When reading a poll/chart that shows a pie chart( knowing that a circle is 360 degrees and what percentage of it is what). When traveling from point A to point be, what distance will you travel? How will the different angles and structures in the road affect your traveling time? emmmm, well... knowledge is about knowing facts, why should you need to apply them every day? Isn't knowing that you know them equally satisfying?
