introduction I chose accountant for the career to do my project on. The reason I chose accountant was because that is one of my options to become when I get older. There are a couple of things that I want to know about accountants. I want to know what kind of formulas they use or do they just use the basics like addition, subtract, multiplication, and division. I also want to know what the average salary for them a year. Those were just a few of the questions that I have for this project; hopefully I will have answers for all of my questions by the completion of this project. These questions do have a lot to do with whether or not I go into this field that is mainly why I chose this career to see whether it would actually be something I want to do or not. Career Investigation Accountants use mathematics everyday in their line of work. First Accountants use problem solving in cases where the balance sheets or income statements do not equal. They must figure out where the problem lies and how to fix it. They have to go through every number to make sure that they are correct, and if not they must find the solution to make the balance sheet equal. They use addition and subtraction to make sure assets equal liabilities and equity. Accountants also use formulas to find out the solutions to different equations. Mathematics is used by Accountants everyday to find the solutions to different problems. In order to be an accountant a person must go to college for four years and get a bachelors degree. Higher education is always recommended for you if you want to be an accountant, so attending college to receive a Masters Degree is really recommended to become more successful in this field. Once someone has received a Masters Degree they must look towards gaining their Doctorate Degree in Accounting. This Degree will open many doors and allow them to obtain and be successful in any line of work through which accounting is needed. Becoming a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) is also a goal that must be accomplished from an individual looking to have a successful career in Accounting. In order to have the best jobs in the Accounting field you must look to gain the highest education level possible, and must be committed and dedicated regardless of how ifficult it is. The potential earnings for an accountant range from $42,520 and $71,960. The earnings really range depending on your education. The higher your education is the more money you make the lower your education the least you make. The amount of money you make also depends on what kind of accountant you are. I personally think that it would be best for a person to obtain a doctorate degree so that you could make more money. It may take longer to get this degree but hard work will always pay off. Conclusion During this research I have learned a few things. I learned that you can obtain a doctorate degree in accountant. I also learned that you will range from $42,520 and $71,960. Another thing I learned was that accountants mainly use basic math. I would consider being an accountant because I really enjoy math. After completing this project it really makes me want to become one even more so I am actually we had to do this project. The reason I say that is because this project has put accounting at the top of my list of things I want to become when I get olde
