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

• Bounded above

A function is bounded above if there is a number B such that ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of ƒ.

• Common difference

See Arithmetic sequence.

• Continuous at x = a

lim x:a x a ƒ(x) = ƒ(a)

• Coordinate(s) of a point

The number associated with a point on a number line, or the ordered pair associated with a point in the Cartesian coordinate plane, or the ordered triple associated with a point in the Cartesian three-dimensional space

• Equilibrium price

See Equilibrium point.

• Finite series

Sum of a finite number of terms.

• Graphical model

A visible representation of a numerical or algebraic model.

• Hypotenuse

Side opposite the right angle in a right triangle.

• Left-hand limit of f at x a

The limit of ƒ as x approaches a from the left.

• Linear function

A function that can be written in the form ƒ(x) = mx + b, where and b are real numbers

• Maximum r-value

The value of |r| at the point on the graph of a polar equation that has the maximum distance from the pole

• Multiplicative inverse of a real number

The reciprocal of b, or 1/b, b Z 0

• Number line graph of a linear inequality

The graph of the solutions of a linear inequality (in x) on a number line

• One-to-one function

A function in which each element of the range corresponds to exactly one element in the domain

• Positive linear correlation

See Linear correlation.
