A function is bounded below if there is a number b such that b ? ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of f.

• Convergence of a sequence

A sequence {an} converges to a if limn: q an = a

• End behavior asymptote of a rational function

A polynomial that the function approaches as.

• Expanded form

The right side of u(v + w) = uv + uw.

• Factor

In algebra, a quantity being multiplied in a product. In statistics, a potential explanatory variable under study in an experiment, .

• Frequency (in statistics)

The number of individuals or observations with a certain characteristic.

• Grapher or graphing utility

Graphing calculator or a computer with graphing software.

• Multiplicative inverse of a complex number
