Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Addition principle of probability.

    P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A and B). If A and B are mutually exclusive events, then P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B)

  • Conditional probability

    The probability of an event A given that an event B has already occurred

  • Difference of two vectors

    <u1, u2> - <v1, v2> = <u1 - v1, u2 - v2> or <u1, u2, u3> - <v1, v2, v3> = <u1 - v1, u2 - v2, u3 - v3>

  • Direct variation

    See Power function.

  • Even function

    A function whose graph is symmetric about the y-axis for all x in the domain of ƒ.

  • Frequency table (in statistics)

    A table showing frequencies.

  • Maximum r-value

    The value of |r| at the point on the graph of a polar equation that has the maximum distance from the pole

  • Modulus

    See Absolute value of a complex number.

  • n-set

    A set of n objects.

  • Objective function

    See Linear programming problem.

  • Odd function

    A function whose graph is symmetric about the origin (ƒ(-x) = -ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of f).

  • Positive linear correlation

    See Linear correlation.

  • Probability function

    A function P that assigns a real number to each outcome O in a sample space satisfying: 0 … P1O2 … 1, P12 = 0, and the sum of the probabilities of all outcomes is 1.

  • Probability of an event in a finite sample space of equally likely outcomes

    The number of outcomes in the event divided by the number of outcomes in the sample space.

  • Rational numbers

    Numbers that can be written as a/b, where a and b are integers, and b ? 0.

  • Rational zeros theorem

    A procedure for finding the possible rational zeros of a polynomial.

  • Replication

    The principle of experimental design that minimizes the effects of chance variation by repeating the experiment multiple times.

  • Riemann sum

    A sum where the interval is divided into n subintervals of equal length and is in the ith subinterval.

  • System

    A set of equations or inequalities.

  • y-coordinate

    The directed distance from the x-axis xz-plane to a point in a plane (space), or the second number in an ordered pair (triple), pp. 12, 629.
