Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Additive inverse of a real number

The opposite of b , or -b

• Categorical variable

In statistics, a nonnumerical variable such as gender or hair color. Numerical variables like zip codes, in which the numbers have no quantitative significance, are also considered to be categorical.

• Compound interest

Interest that becomes part of the investment

• Confounding variable

A third variable that affects either of two variables being studied, making inferences about causation unreliable

• Double-angle identity

An identity involving a trigonometric function of 2u

• equation of a hyperbola

(x - h)2 a2 - (y - k)2 b2 = 1 or (y - k)2 a2 - (x - h)2 b2 = 1

• equation of a parabola

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

• Graph of a function ƒ

The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the pairs (x, ƒ(x)) for x in the domain of ƒ.

• Mean (of a set of data)

The sum of all the data divided by the total number of items

• Multiplication principle of probability

If A and B are independent events, then P(A and B) = P(A) # P(B). If Adepends on B, then P(A and B) = P(A|B) # P(B)

• Numerical model

A model determined by analyzing numbers or data in order to gain insight into a phenomenon, p. 64.

• Ordered pair

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

• Position vector of the point (a, b)

The vector <a,b>.

• 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

• Reciprocal function

The function ƒ(x) = 1x

• Rectangular coordinate system

See Cartesian coordinate system.

• Recursively defined sequence

A sequence defined by giving the first term (or the first few terms) along with a procedure for finding the subsequent terms.

• Reference angle

See Reference triangle

• RRAM

A Riemann sum approximation of the area under a curve ƒ(x) from x = a to x = b using x1 as the right-hand end point of each subinterval.

• Vertex form for a quadratic function

ƒ(x) = a(x - h)2 + k
