There is a lot of ways that algebra is used throughout the day, other than in math class. One of those ways could be if you only have so much money, and you need to get food or groceries. Say you only had fifty dollars to get everything you need. You'd have to keep track of what something costs, and how much money you have left.
Another way that algebra can be used every day is doing it just for fun. Some people may make up problems, and do them as if they were reading a book. Me personally I would not do this, but some people may.
These are some ways algebra can be used in everyday life.
