Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Absolute maximum

A value ƒ(c) is an absolute maximum value of ƒ if ƒ(c) ? ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of ƒ.

• Additive inverse of a complex number

The opposite of a + bi, or -a - bi

• Base

See Exponential function, Logarithmic function, nth power of a.

• Binomial probability

In an experiment with two possible outcomes, the probability of one outcome occurring k times in n independent trials is P1E2 = n!k!1n - k2!pk11 - p) n-k where p is the probability of the outcome occurring once

• Bounded

A function is bounded if there are numbers b and B such that b ? ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of f.

• Coefficient of determination

The number r2 or R2 that measures how well a regression curve fits the data

• Complex number

An expression a + bi, where a (the real part) and b (the imaginary part) are real numbers

• Constant

A letter or symbol that stands for a specific number,

• Damping factor

The factor Ae-a in an equation such as y = Ae-at cos bt

• Degree of a polynomial (function)

The largest exponent on the variable in any of the terms of the polynomial (function)

• Eccentricity

A nonnegative number that specifies how off-center the focus of a conic is

• Equally likely outcomes

Outcomes of an experiment that have the same probability of occurring.

• Half-plane

The graph of the linear inequality y ? ax + b, y > ax + b y ? ax + b, or y < ax + b.

• 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

• Midpoint (on a number line)

For the line segment with endpoints a and b, a + b2

• Nautical mile

Length of 1 minute of arc along the Earth’s equator.

• Orthogonal vectors

Two vectors u and v with u x v = 0.

• Power rule of logarithms

logb Rc = c logb R, R 7 0.

• Reference triangle

For an angle ? in standard position, a reference triangle is a triangle formed by the terminal side of angle ?, the x-axis, and a perpendicular dropped from a point on the terminal side to the x-axis. The angle in a reference triangle at the origin is the reference angle

• Solve graphically

Use a graphical method, including use of a hand sketch or use of a grapher. When appropriate, the approximate solution should be confirmed algebraically
