A branch of mathematics related to determining the number of elements of a set or the number of ways objects can be arranged or combined

• Distance (in Cartesian space)

The distance d(P, Q) between and P(x, y, z) and Q(x, y, z) or d(P, Q) ((x ) - x 2)2 + (y1 - y2)2 + (z 1 - z 2)2

Using the science of statistics to make inferences about the parameters in a population from a sample.

• Inverse tangent function

The function y = tan-1 x

• Logarithmic function with base b

The inverse of the exponential function y = bx, denoted by y = logb x

• Magnitude of an arrow

The magnitude of PQ is the distance between P and Q

• Multiplicative inverse of a matrix

See Inverse of a matrix

• Opens upward or downward

A parabola y = ax 2 + bx + c opens upward if a > 0 and opens downward if a < 0.

• Product of matrices A and B
