Absolute value of a complex number
The absolute value of the complex number z = a + b is given by ?a2+b2; also, the length of the segment from the origin to z in the complex plane.

Binomial
A polynomial with exactly two terms

Combinations of n objects taken r at a time
There are nCr = n! r!1n  r2! such combinations,

Degree
Unit of measurement (represented by the symbol ) for angles or arcs, equal to 1/360 of a complete revolution

Doubleblind experiment
A blind experiment in which the researcher gathering data from the subjects is not told which subjects have received which treatment

Fitting a line or curve to data
Finding a line or curve that comes close to passing through all the points in a scatter plot.

General form (of a line)
Ax + By + C = 0, where A and B are not both zero.

Identity matrix
A square matrix with 1’s in the main diagonal and 0’s elsewhere, p. 534.

Interquartile range
The difference between the third quartile and the first quartile.

Lower bound test for real zeros
A test for finding a lower bound for the real zeros of a polynomial

Multiplication principle of probability
If A and B are independent events, then P(A and B) = P(A) # P(B). If Adepends on B, then P(A and B) = P(AB) # P(B)

Multiplicative identity for matrices
See Identity matrix

Natural logarithm
A logarithm with base e.

Opposite
See Additive inverse of a real number and Additive inverse of a complex number.

Phase shift
See Sinusoid.

Piecewisedefined function
A function whose domain is divided into several parts with a different function rule applied to each part, p. 104.

Repeated zeros
Zeros of multiplicity ? 2 (see Multiplicity).

Statistic
A number that measures a quantitative variable for a sample from a population.

Sum of an infinite series
See Convergence of a series
