Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook

    See Arithmetic sequence.

  • Compounded continuously

    Interest compounded using the formula A = Pert

  • 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

    logb a R S b = logb R - logb S, R > 0, S > 0

  • Real number line

    A horizontal line that represents the set of real numbers.

  • Reflection across the y-axis

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

  • Right-hand limit of ƒ at x a

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