# Mathematics & statistics

Mathematics & Statistics are often used interchangeably but are two very different subjects.

Mathematics is the art of numbers, quantity, and space. The study of Mathematics on its own it is called *pure mathematics.* Likewise it can also be applied to other areas such as physics and engineering. In this case, it is called *applied mathematics*.

Statistics is often confused with Mathematics. Statistics is the art of collecting and analyzing numerical data in large quantities, for the purpose of deducting shares as a whole from those in a representative sample.

In this category you will find a vast range of topics within both fields.
