Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook

If u < v , then u + w < v + w

• Arcsecant function

See Inverse secant function.

• Demand curve

p = g(x), where x represents demand and p represents price

• Distance (in a coordinate plane)

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

• Distributive property

a(b + c) = ab + ac and related properties

• Extracting square roots

A method for solving equations in the form x 2 = k.

• Focus, foci

See Ellipse, Hyperbola, Parabola.

• Index

• Inferential statistics

Using the science of statistics to make inferences about the parameters in a population from a sample.

• Inverse secant function

The function y = sec-1 x

• Linear regression equation

Equation of a linear regression line

• Logarithmic regression

See Natural logarithmic regression

• Mathematical induction

A process for proving that a statement is true for all natural numbers n by showing that it is true for n = 1 (the anchor) and that, if it is true for n = k, then it must be true for n = k + 1 (the inductive step)

• Measure of center

A measure of the typical, middle, or average value for a data set

• Negative numbers

Real numbers shown to the left of the origin on a number line.

• Observational study

A process for gathering data from a subset of a population through current or past observations. This differs from an experiment in that no treatment is imposed.

• Odd-even identity

For a basic trigonometric function f, an identity relating f(x) to f(-x).

• Principal nth root

If bn = a, then b is an nth root of a. If bn = a and a and b have the same sign, b is the principal nth root of a (see Radical), p. 508.

• Synthetic division

A procedure used to divide a polynomial by a linear factor, x - a

• Weighted mean

A mean calculated in such a way that some elements of the data set have higher weights (that is, are counted more strongly in determining the mean) than others.
