This note is specially made to know what actually is Maths, what is its use in a world without humans, and how it affects on's intelligence. This discussion note demand from every 'Maths' geek(in other words, all the people on Brilliant) to share their views on the definition of Mathematics according to them.

I personally think this note is very important in this Maths community.

What is mathematics?

I've always used the following sentence as the answer to this question.

Mathematics is the study of structures

Although it's really short and a bit abstract, to me it works better than phrases like 'the study of numbers' or 'the study of quantities'.
