Some time ago, I installed Python, LaTeX, C, Perl, Fortran, etc. on my Mac for some college work. I think I used Homebrew to install at least some of them. Now I am not sure how to remove them as I don't can't find where they are. I went to the Library directory but don't know what to look for.

When I go to the Launchpad, I find all of these things regarding LaTeX. I am not sure if all of them are needed. Besides, I am not sure if they are just front end apps.

The latex apps in the Launchpad

Those programs in the image can be removed by moving from Applications to the trash.

If you installed something from homebrew, the way of removing is the following:

brew list

This will show you a list of installed formulas. After the list comes to you, you have to select what you need to remove and use the command:

brew uninstall <formula>
