In today's complex and competitive business environment, maths is increasingly becoming an integral part of the business disciplines as a powerful tool. With the rapid development of technology and the explosion of data, the application of mathematical models is not only important at the theoretical level, but also plays a key role in business decision-making.The purpose of this thesis is to delve into the practical application of advanced mathematics in business decision-making, and to assess the effectiveness of mathematical tools such as elasticity functions, marginal functions, first-order differential equations, and other mathematical tools for business decision-making by examining their comprehensive application in economics majors. Through this study, it aims to provide business students with a more practical and insightful perspective on the application of mathematics and to improve their ability to solve practical business problems.
