Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Common logarithm

    A logarithm with base 10.

  • Elementary row operations

    The following three row operations: Multiply all elements of a row by a nonzero constant; interchange two rows; and add a multiple of one row to another row

  • Exponential function

    A function of the form ƒ(x) = a ? bx,where ?0, b > 0 b ?1

  • Frequency table (in statistics)

    A table showing frequencies.

  • Horizontal asymptote

    The line is a horizontal asymptote of the graph of a function ƒ if lim x:- q ƒ(x) = or lim x: q ƒ(x) = b

  • Inverse function

    The inverse relation of a one-to-one function.

  • Logistic growth function

    A model of population growth: ƒ1x2 = c 1 + a # bx or ƒ1x2 = c1 + ae-kx, where a, b, c, and k are positive with b < 1. c is the limit to growth

  • Magnitude of a real number

    See Absolute value of a real number

  • Odd-even identity

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

  • Ordered pair

    A pair of real numbers (x, y), p. 12.

  • Ordinary annuity

    An annuity in which deposits are made at the same time interest is posted.

  • Partial fraction decomposition

    See Partial fractions.

  • Polar form of a complex number

    See Trigonometric form of a complex number.

  • Polynomial in x

    An expression that can be written in the form an x n + an-1x n-1 + Á + a1x + a0, where n is a nonnegative integer, the coefficients are real numbers, and an ? 0. The degree of the polynomial is n, the leading coefficient is an, the leading term is anxn, and the constant term is a0. (The number 0 is the zero polynomial)

  • Power function

    A function of the form ƒ(x) = k . x a, where k and a are nonzero constants. k is the constant of variation and a is the power.

  • Sequence

    See Finite sequence, Infinite sequence.

  • Sum of a finite geometric series

    Sn = a111 - r n 2 1 - r

  • symmetric about the x-axis

    A graph in which (x, -y) is on the graph whenever (x, y) is; or a graph in which (r, -?) or (-r, ?, -?) is on the graph whenever (r, ?) is

  • Terminal point

    See Arrow.

  • Variable (in statistics)

    A characteristic of individuals that is being identified or measured.
