The location where it lands and the shape of the blood reveal a lot to the analysts through them using math principles. Another job that involves math is a cryptanalyst. These people analyze and decipher secret codes. A lot of times, cryptanalysts have to do cryptic computations and use numerical analysis and theorems and postulates to solve the code. As you can see, math is basically used everyday, without people even realizing it. Humans use math when they shop and in their jobs. Math is a very important concept that people need to understand in order to get a successful job, at least most of the time.
