The only way to be successful in business is to be good at maths. Do go agree or disagree?


successful in business/ maths 

Proposition: The only way to be successful in business is to be good at maths


– understanding the numbers well -> making proper business decisions –
– maths helps people think more logically -> increasing the chance of success in business. 

– many people are successful in business without being good at maths but administration  -> hire people good at maths – Communicational skills, and teamwork skill… are required (more important than calculation skills) to be successful in business 

Introduction: It is believed that the only way to achieve success in the domain of business is to excel in maths. Although I do think that mathematics skills play a crucial role in the success of one’s business, they are not the only key component. Therefore, I personally do not agree with the stated belief. This essay will explain my point of view.

Topic 1: On the one hand, some people argue that a successful businessman must be good at maths

Topic 2:  Maths is not only the key to become successful in business because there are other more significant skills.

Summary: To sum up, being good at maths is crucial. However, this is not adequate to win in business. In addition to math science, you also need other skills mentioned above.

Government shouldn’t have to provide care or financial support for elderly people because it is the responsibility of each person to prepare for retirement and support him or herself. 

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion? 


Nowadays, the world population is aging, and this puts pressure on society. Therefore, it is said that each person should have a financial plan after their retirement and the Government doesn’t have to aid retired people. I disagree with this idea and in this essay, I will present my view.

Firstly, When people retire, they don’t have a salary anymore. Furthermore, Elderly people’s health is not as good as young people. They may easily be able to have aging-related-diseases such as heart stroke, cancer…Provided that they were sick, they would have to pay a lot of money for high hospital expenses. However, most elderly can not afford this finance if the Government does not pay for them.

Secondly, the Government should play an important role in supporting the elderly. When retired people were still young, they were working and paying taxes for the Government. Moreover, They devoted themself for the development as well as the wealth of society. Therefore, It is true that  they certainly get deserving allowances which belong to them.

Last but not least, Each person needs to have a backup plan for their future.  If The Government is unlikely to help them, for example, because of budget deficiency, The elderly will still  have to care for themself instead of expecting the Government’s help.

In summary, the Government should have to aid its retirees for their great contributions. Despite the fact that each person also should  prepare financially, so they assure a decent life after they stop working. (251 words)
