going to the grocery store, and figuring out costs(?)
Many people learn algebra, and then never use it in their "real life". It's not that it COULDN'T be useful; but rather, that many people tend to forget how to use it. In some professions, you will DEFINITELY need algebra - as well as more advanced math.
You could use algebra in real life in nearly anything that you do. You could use algebra to calculate how much gas you will put in your car and how much it will cost you.
Yes, you will.
The basics come into use quite often, though you might not even realise you are using algebra.
U use algebra in your daily life because you could need it in jobs or careers when you get old enough to have them. Also people like algebra and have jobs like accounting so you have to learn it... ! ...
It depends upon the work you are going to do in the future for example if you are going to be an engineer you will use it but if you are going to be a loundry you will not use it
Most people don't use algebra in their daily lives, mainly because they forget how to use it - except those that work in engineering or science. If you are comfortable with algebra, you COULD use it to solve problems in a variety of real-life situations.
We use it all the time without knowing it. When we go to the store or do finances, it's all algebra. Engineering and many scientific fields also use algebra.
