The connections the Eiffel Tower has with Algebra is that it is necessary to find the points in a coordinate plane and create lines. Thanks to this, we were able to recreate the Eiffel Tower in a piece of paper. The use of specific measures and slope of lines can be useful in many ways, an example is to recreate difficult drawings like the Eiffel Tower. This is applied in architecture, which is necessary to build things.

Despite its height, the Eiffel Tower was designed to be wind resistant, swaying only a few inches in the wind. It actually moves further when the iron on the sun facing side heats and expands, moving the top up to 7 inches (18 centimetres) away from the sunTemperature also alters the height of the Eiffel Tower by up to 6 inches (15 centimetres).The French name for the Eiffel Tower is La Tour Eiffel, it also has the nickname La dame de fer which means the iron lady.
