Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Continuous at x = a

    lim x:a x a ƒ(x) = ƒ(a)

  • Distance (in Cartesian space)

    The distance d(P, Q) between and P(x, y, z) and Q(x, y, z) or d(P, Q) ((x ) - x 2)2 + (y1 - y2)2 + (z 1 - z 2)2

  • Distance (on a number line)

    The distance between real numbers a and b, or |a - b|

  • Frequency table (in statistics)

    A table showing frequencies.

  • Future value of an annuity

    The net amount of money returned from an annuity.

  • Hypotenuse

    Side opposite the right angle in a right triangle.

  • Integrable over [a, b] Lba

    ƒ1x2 dx exists.

  • Linear correlation

    A scatter plot with points clustered along a line. Correlation is positive if the slope is positive and negative if the slope is negative

  • Linear regression

    A procedure for finding the straight line that is the best fit for the data

  • NDER ƒ(a)

    See Numerical derivative of ƒ at x = a.

  • Polar coordinates

    The numbers (r, ?) that determine a point’s location in a polar coordinate system. The number r is the directed distance and ? is the directed angle

  • Positive association

    A relationship between two variables in which higher values of one variable are generally associated with higher values of the other variable, p. 717.

  • Probability distribution

    The collection of probabilities of outcomes in a sample space assigned by a probability function.

  • Quotient rule of logarithms

    logb a R S b = logb R - logb S, R > 0, S > 0

  • Replication

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

  • Terminal point

    See Arrow.

  • Terms of a sequence

    The range elements of a sequence.

  • Third quartile

    See Quartile.

  • Trichotomy property

    For real numbers a and b, exactly one of the following is true: a < b, a = b , or a > b.

  • Vertical line

    x = a.
