Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Argument of a complex number

The argument of a + bi is the direction angle of the vector {a,b}.

• Binomial probability

In an experiment with two possible outcomes, the probability of one outcome occurring k times in n independent trials is P1E2 = n!k!1n - k2!pk11 - p) n-k where p is the probability of the outcome occurring once

• Boundary

The set of points on the “edge” of a region

• Directed angle

See Polar coordinates.

• Directrix of a parabola, ellipse, or hyperbola

A line used to determine the conic

• Double inequality

A statement that describes a bounded interval, such as 3 ? x < 5

• Extracting square roots

A method for solving equations in the form x 2 = k.

• Inverse composition rule

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

• Inverse of a matrix

The inverse of a square matrix A, if it exists, is a matrix B, such that AB = BA = I , where I is an identity matrix.

• Measure of center

A measure of the typical, middle, or average value for a data set

• Outcomes

The various possible results of an experiment.

• Random behavior

Behavior that is determined only by the laws of probability.

• Reflection across the x-axis

x, y and (x,-y) are reflections of each other across the x-axis.

• Reflection through the origin

x, y and (-x,-y) are reflections of each other through the origin.

• Row operations

See Elementary row operations.

• Singular matrix

A square matrix with zero determinant

• Solution of an equation or inequality

A value of the variable (or values of the variables) for which the equation or inequality is true

• Sum of a finite arithmetic series

Sn = na a1 + a2 2 b = n 2 32a1 + 1n - 12d4,

• Vector

An ordered pair <a, b> of real numbers in the plane, or an ordered triple <a, b, c> of real numbers in space. A vector has both magnitude and direction.

• xz-plane

The points x, 0, z in Cartesian space.
