According to Webster's-Online-Dictionary.org:

Statistics is a branch of applied mathematics which includes the
planning, summarizing, and interpreting of uncertain observations. Because the
aim of statistics is to produce the "best" information from available
data, some authors make statistics a branch of decision theory. As a model of
randomness or ignorance, probability theory plays a critical role in the
development of statistical theory.

According to Wikipedia:

Mathematics is the academic discipline, and its supporting body
of knowledge, that involves the study of such concepts as quantity, structure,
space and change. The mathematician Benjamin Peirce called it "the science
that draws necessary conclusions". Other practitioners of mathematics
maintain that mathematics is the science of pattern, and that mathematicians
seek out patterns whether found in numbers, space, science, computers,
imaginary abstractions, or elsewhere. Mathematicians explore such concepts, aiming
to formulate new conjectures and establish their truth by rigorous deduction
from appropriately chosen axioms and definitions.

Through the use of abstraction and logical reasoning,
mathematics evolved from counting, calculation, measurement, and the systematic
study of the shapes and motions of physical objects. Knowledge and use of basic
mathematics have always been an inherent and integral part of individual and
group life.

According to Webster's-Online-Dictionary.org:

Mathematics is commonly defined as the study of patterns of
structure, change, and space. In the modern formalist view, it is the
investigation of axiomatically defined abstract structures using logic and
mathematical notation. It is a science (or group of related sciences) dealing
with the logic of quantity and shape and arrangement

Basic Mathematics is necessary in almost all fields. Mathematics is necessary even in the fields like medicine, science, technology, electronics, computer and so on.
