Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Blind experiment

An experiment in which subjects do not know if they have been given an active treatment or a placebo

• Bounded interval

An interval that has finite length (does not extend to ? or -?)

• Demand curve

p = g(x), where x represents demand and p represents price

• Division algorithm for polynomials

Given ƒ(x), d(x) ? 0 there are unique polynomials q1x (quotient) and r1x(remainder) ƒ1x2 = d1x2q1x2 + r1x2 with with either r1x2 = 0 or degree of r(x) 6 degree of d1x2

• First octant

The points (x, y, z) in space with x > 0 y > 0, and z > 0.

• Geometric sequence

A sequence {an}in which an = an-1.r for every positive integer n ? 2. The nonzero number r is called the common ratio.

• Horizontal line

y = b.

• Leibniz notation

The notation dy/dx for the derivative of ƒ.

• 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

• Linear inequality in x

An inequality that can be written in the form ax + b < 0 ,ax + b … 0 , ax + b > 0, or ax + b Ú 0, where a and b are real numbers and a Z 0

• Position vector of the point (a, b)

The vector <a,b>.

• Power-reducing identity

A trigonometric identity that reduces the power to which the trigonometric functions are raised.

• Repeated zeros

Zeros of multiplicity ? 2 (see Multiplicity).

• Solve by elimination or substitution

Methods for solving systems of linear equations.

• Stretch of factor c

A transformation of a graph obtained by multiplying all the x-coordinates (horizontal stretch) by the constant 1/c, or all of the y-coordinates (vertical stretch) of the points by a constant c, c, > 1.

• Sum of an infinite series

See Convergence of a series

• Symmetric property of equality

If a = b, then b = a

• Synthetic division

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

• Tangent

The function y = tan x
