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

See Arithmetic sequence.

• Differentiable at x = a

ƒ'(a) exists

• Ellipse

The set of all points in the plane such that the sum of the distances from a pair of fixed points (the foci) is a constant

• First quartile

See Quartile.

• Focus, foci

See Ellipse, Hyperbola, Parabola.

• Function

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

• Integers

The numbers . . ., -3, -2, -1, 0,1,2,...2

• Intercept

Point where a curve crosses the x-, y-, or z-axis in a graph.

• Line of symmetry

A line over which a graph is the mirror image of itself

• Linear inequality in two variables x and y

An inequality that can be written in one of the following forms: y 6 mx + b, y … mx + b, y 7 mx + b, or y Ú mx + b with m Z 0

• Outcomes

The various possible results of an experiment.

• Plane in Cartesian space

The graph of Ax + By + Cz + D = 0, where A, B, and C are not all zero.

• 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)

• Product of functions

(ƒg)(x) = ƒ(x)g(x)

An equation that can be written in the form ax 2 + bx + c = 01a ? 02

• Range (in statistics)

The difference between the greatest and least values in a data set.

• Reflexive property of equality

a = a

• Term of a polynomial (function)

An expression of the form anxn in a polynomial (function).

• Vertical component

See Component form of a vector.
