Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Bounded above

    A function is bounded above if there is a number B such that ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of ƒ.

  • Complements or complementary angles

    Two angles of positive measure whose sum is 90°

  • Constraints

    See Linear programming problem.

  • equation of a parabola

    (x - h)2 = 4p(y - k) or (y - k)2 = 4p(x - h)

  • Exponential regression

    A procedure for fitting an exponential function to a set of data.

  • Graph of an inequality in x and y

    The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the solutions x, y of the inequality.

  • Identity function

    The function ƒ(x) = x.

  • Inverse relation (of the relation R)

    A relation that consists of all ordered pairs b, a for which a, b belongs to R.

  • Limit to growth

    See Logistic growth function.

  • Product of complex numbers

    (a + bi)(c + di) = (ac - bd) + (ad + bc)i

  • Product of matrices A and B

    The matrix in which each entry is obtained by multiplying the entries of a row of A by the corresponding entries of a column of B and then adding

  • Radius

    The distance from a point on a circle (or a sphere) to the center of the circle (or the sphere).

  • Rational function

    Function of the form ƒ(x)/g(x) where ƒ(x) and g(x) are polynomials and g(x) is not the zero polynomial.

  • Scientific notation

    A positive number written as c x 10m, where 1 ? c < 10 and m is an integer.

  • Semimajor axis

    The distance from the center to a vertex of an ellipse.

  • Solve an equation or inequality

    To find all solutions of the equation or inequality

  • Synthetic division

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

  • Variation

    See Power function.

  • Vertical asymptote

    The line x = a is a vertical asymptote of the graph of the function ƒ if limx:a+ ƒ1x2 = q or lim x:a- ƒ1x2 = q.

  • 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.
