## Study Notes

Geometry is one of the most fundamental branches of mathematics; it deals with relationships among points, lines, angles, surfaces, solids, and their properties, using axioms and postulates as a basis. This branch of math has been used extensively throughout history to understand shapes, space, and the universe itself. It's also widely applied in designing buildings, vehicles, machines, electronic circuits, etc., making it very practical too.

Mensuration, another area within mathematics, involves measuring physical quantities such as length, area and volume, usually by counting units like square centimeters or cubic inches. In application, this could involve calculating the dimensions of a room, determining surface areas of objects like boxes or containers, or even finding volumes of more complex structures. For example, the formula A = (\frac{lw}{2}) can be used to find the area of a rectangle given its length and width, while the Pythagorean theorem (a² + b² = c²) helps solve right triangle problems related to distances between points.

These two subjects work together closely since they help us visualize measurements spatially through diagrams which makes understanding them easier. Through learning these principles we can better design things around us, whether architectural designs, engineering projects, or even just making sure our furniture fits properly into rooms.
