Why do you need to be able to do math in Java or any language at all?

It's just something that I've always wondered

Hi Hayden,

You don't necessarily need to write a program that has any math in it. Whether you need to do math in your program is going to depend on what you want your program to do. I think that if we started thinking about it, most things you'd want a program to do will involve some sort of math to get the job done.

Can you think of anything that you could get a computer to do that might not need math?
