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)

artesian coordinate system
An association between the points in a plane and ordered pairs of real numbers; or an association between the points in threedimensional space and ordered triples of real numbers

Factoring (a polynomial)
Writing a polynomial as a product of two or more polynomial factors.

Function
A relation that associates each value in the domain with exactly one value in the range.

Heron’s formula
The area of ¢ABC with semiperimeter s is given by 2s1s  a21s  b21s  c2.

Hypotenuse
Side opposite the right angle in a right triangle.

Imaginary part of a complex number
See Complex number.

Increasing on an interval
A function ƒ is increasing on an interval I if, for any two points in I, a positive change in x results in a positive change in.

Limit at infinity
limx: qƒ1x2 = L means that ƒ1x2 gets arbitrarily close to L as x gets arbitrarily large; lim x: q ƒ1x2 means that gets arbitrarily close to L as gets arbitrarily large

Line graph
A graph of data in which consecutive data points are connected by line segments

Linear programming problem
A method of solving certain problems involving maximizing or minimizing a function of two variables (called an objective function) subject to restrictions (called constraints)

Multiplicative inverse of a matrix
See Inverse of a matrix

Natural logarithmic regression
A procedure for fitting a logarithmic curve to a set of data.

Normal distribution
A distribution of data shaped like the normal curve.

Ordered set
A set is ordered if it is possible to compare any two elements and say that one element is “less than” or “greater than” the other.

Product of complex numbers
(a + bi)(c + di) = (ac  bd) + (ad + bc)i

Quotient of functions
a ƒ g b(x) = ƒ(x) g(x) , g(x) ? 0

Standard unit vectors
In the plane i = <1, 0> and j = <0,1>; in space i = <1,0,0>, j = <0,1,0> k = <0,0,1>
