    A coordinate plane used to represent the complex numbers. The x-axis of the complex plane is called the real axis and the y-axis is the imaginary axis

  • Compounded k times per year

    Interest compounded using the formula A = Pa1 + rkbkt where k = 1 is compounded annually, k = 4 is compounded quarterly k = 12 is compounded monthly, etc.

  • Confounding variable

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

  • Eccentricity

    A nonnegative number that specifies how off-center the focus of a conic is

  • Elementary row operations

    The following three row operations: Multiply all elements of a row by a nonzero constant; interchange two rows; and add a multiple of one row to another row

    The complex number.

  • Interval notation

    Notation used to specify intervals, pp. 4, 5.

  • Inverse secant function

    The function y = sec-1 x

  • Line graph

    A graph of data in which consecutive data points are connected by line segments

  • Linear factorization theorem

    A polynomial ƒ(x) of degree n > 0 has the factorization ƒ(x) = a(x1 - z1) 1x - i z 22 Á 1x - z n where the z1 are the zeros of ƒ

  • Linear system

    A system of linear equations

  • Projectile motion

    The movement of an object that is subject only to the force of gravity

  • Random variable

    A function that assigns real-number values to the outcomes in a sample space.
