Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Augmented matrix

A matrix that represents a system of equations.

• Bias

A flaw in the design of a sampling process that systematically causes the sample to differ from the population with respect to the statistic being measured. Undercoverage bias results when the sample systematically excludes one or more segments of the population. Voluntary response bias results when a sample consists only of those who volunteer their responses. Response bias results when the sampling design intentionally or unintentionally influences the responses

• Binomial coefficients

The numbers in Pascal’s triangle: nCr = anrb = n!r!1n - r2!

• Combinations of n objects taken r at a time

There are nCr = n! r!1n - r2! such combinations,

• Common ratio

See Geometric sequence.

• Derivative of ƒ at x a

ƒ'(a) = lim x:a ƒ(x) - ƒ(a) x - a provided the limit exists

• Difference of complex numbers

(a + bi) - (c + di) = (a - c) + (b - d)i

• Equivalent equations (inequalities)

Equations (inequalities) that have the same solutions.

• Horizontal shrink or stretch

See Shrink, stretch.

• Law of sines

sin A a = sin B b = sin C c

• Length of a vector

See Magnitude of a vector.

• Linear inequality in two variables x and y

An inequality that can be written in one of the following forms: y 6 mx + b, y … mx + b, y 7 mx + b, or y Ú mx + b with m Z 0

• Logistic regression

A procedure for fitting a logistic curve to a set of data

• Mode of a data set

The category or number that occurs most frequently in the set.

• Parametric curve

The graph of parametric equations.

• Pole

See Polar coordinate system.

• Rational function

Function of the form ƒ(x)/g(x) where ƒ(x) and g(x) are polynomials and g(x) is not the zero polynomial.

• Solution of a system in two variables

An ordered pair of real numbers that satisfies all of the equations or inequalities in the system

• Symmetric property of equality

If a = b, then b = a

• Upper bound for real zeros

A number d is an upper bound for the set of real zeros of ƒ if ƒ(x) ? 0 whenever x > d.
