you can use it for organizing stuff and if you want to group stuff like variables together. it makes it easier to do a specific action to all of them. also if you're say, making a hangman game and you want to pick a random word then you need to make an array with a bunch of random words and have a function picking a random number for an index and returning the value of "Array[index]". All which you couldn'd do without the array. That is just one example of an array's usefulness.

it holds a collection of data and it makes it easier for you to acces it just by using the index of the data
