Solution

## Mathematics is the study of such topics as quantity, structure, space, and change. It has no generally accepted definition. Mathematicians seek out patterns and use them to formulate new conjectures.Since the beginning of recorded history, mathematical discovery has been at the forefront of every civilized society, and math has been used by even the most primitive and earliest cultures. The need for math arose because of the increasingly complex demands from societies around the world, which required more advanced mathematical solutions, as outlined by mathematician Raymond L. Wilder in his book "Evolution of Mathematical Concepts" (Dover Publications, 2013).
