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

Cardioid
A limaçon whose polar equation is r = a ± a sin ?, or r = a ± a cos ?, where a > 0.

Combination
An arrangement of elements of a set, in which order is not important

Common ratio
See Geometric sequence.

De Moivre’s theorem
(r(cos ? + i sin ?))n = r n (cos n? + i sin n?)

Divergence
A sequence or series diverges if it does not converge

Graph of an inequality in x and y
The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the solutions x, y of the inequality.

Inverse variation
See Power function.

Matrix, m x n
A rectangular array of m rows and n columns of real numbers

nth root
See Principal nth root

Numerical derivative of ƒ at a
NDER f(a) = ƒ1a + 0.0012  ƒ1a  0.00120.002

Obtuse triangle
A triangle in which one angle is greater than 90°.

Placebo
In an experimental study, an inactive treatment that is equivalent to the active treatment in every respect except for the factor about which an inference is to be made. Subjects in a blind experiment do not know if they have been given the active treatment or the placebo.

Polar distance formula
The distance between the points with polar coordinates (r1, ?1 ) and (r2, ?2 ) = 2r 12 + r 22  2r1r2 cos 1?1  ?22

Power function
A function of the form ƒ(x) = k . x a, where k and a are nonzero constants. k is the constant of variation and a is the power.

Rational zeros
Zeros of a function that are rational numbers.

Right angle
A 90° angle.

Row echelon form
A matrix in which rows consisting of all 0’s occur only at the bottom of the matrix, the first nonzero entry in any row with nonzero entries is 1, and the leading 1’s move to the right as we move down the rows.

Solution of a system in two variables
An ordered pair of real numbers that satisfies all of the equations or inequalities in the system

Terms of a sequence
The range elements of a sequence.
