Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Arithmetic sequence

A sequence {an} in which an = an-1 + d for every integer n ? 2 . The number d is the common difference.

• Binomial

A polynomial with exactly two terms

• Distance (in a coordinate plane)

The distance d(P, Q) between P(x, y) and Q(x, y) d(P, Q) = 2(x 1 - x 2)2 + (y1 - y2)2

• Divisor of a polynomial

See Division algorithm for polynomials.

• Equilibrium point

A point where the supply curve and demand curve intersect. The corresponding price is the equilibrium price.

• Focal length of a parabola

The directed distance from the vertex to the focus.

• 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.

• Inverse composition rule

The composition of a one-toone function with its inverse results in the identity function.

• Line graph

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

• Line of travel

The path along which an object travels

• Matrix element

Any of the real numbers in a matrix

• Midpoint (in a coordinate plane)

For the line segment with endpoints (a,b) and (c,d), (aa + c2 ,b + d2)

• Power rule of logarithms

logb Rc = c logb R, R 7 0.

An angle in standard position whose terminal side lies on an axis.

• Solve a triangle

To find one or more unknown sides or angles of a triangle

• Solve an equation or inequality

To find all solutions of the equation or inequality

• Solve by substitution

Method for solving systems of linear equations.

• Time plot

A line graph in which time is measured on the horizontal axis.

• Xmax

The x-value of the right side of the viewing window,.

• z-coordinate

The directed distance from the xy-plane to a point in space, or the third number in an ordered triple.
