Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Addition property of inequality

    If u < v , then u + w < v + w

  • Combinatorics

    A branch of mathematics related to determining the number of elements of a set or the number of ways objects can be arranged or combined

  • Compound fraction

    A fractional expression in which the numerator or denominator may contain fractions

  • Compounded continuously

    Interest compounded using the formula A = Pert

  • Correlation coefficient

    A measure of the strength of the linear relationship between two variables, pp. 146, 162.

  • Domain of validity of an identity

    The set of values of the variable for which both sides of the identity are defined

  • Equilibrium price

    See Equilibrium point.

  • Inverse secant function

    The function y = sec-1 x

  • Law of cosines

    a2 = b2 + c2 - 2bc cos A, b2 = a2 + c2 - 2ac cos B, c2 = a2 + b2 - 2ab cos C

  • Limit to growth

    See Logistic growth function.

  • Parabola

    The graph of a quadratic function, or the set of points in a plane that are equidistant from a fixed point (the focus) and a fixed line (the directrix).

  • Pseudo-random numbers

    Computer-generated numbers that can be used to approximate true randomness in scientific studies. Since they depend on iterative computer algorithms, they are not truly random

  • Quartic function

    A degree 4 polynomial function.

  • Reference angle

    See Reference triangle

  • Riemann sum

    A sum where the interval is divided into n subintervals of equal length and is in the ith subinterval.

  • Right circular cone

    The surface created when a line is rotated about a second line that intersects but is not perpendicular to the first line.

  • Row operations

    See Elementary row operations.

  • Solution of a system in two variables

    An ordered pair of real numbers that satisfies all of the equations or inequalities in the system

  • Solve by substitution

    Method for solving systems of linear equations.

  • Sum of a finite arithmetic series

    Sn = na a1 + a2 2 b = n 2 32a1 + 1n - 12d4,
