Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Additive inverse of a real number

The opposite of b , or -b

• Branches

The two separate curves that make up a hyperbola

• Coefficient

The real number multiplied by the variable(s) in a polynomial term

• Factored form

The left side of u(v + w) = uv + uw.

• Higher-degree polynomial function

A polynomial function whose degree is ? 3

• Horizontal asymptote

The line is a horizontal asymptote of the graph of a function ƒ if lim x:- q ƒ(x) = or lim x: q ƒ(x) = b

• Interquartile range

The difference between the third quartile and the first quartile.

• Local maximum

A value ƒ(c) is a local maximum of ƒ if there is an open interval I containing c such that ƒ(x) < ƒ(c) for all values of x in I

• Multiplication property of inequality

If u < v and c > 0, then uc < vc. If u < and c < 0, then uc > vc

• Obtuse triangle

A triangle in which one angle is greater than 90°.

• Parametric curve

The graph of parametric equations.

• Polynomial function

A function in which ƒ(x)is a polynomial in x, p. 158.

• Polynomial in x

An expression that can be written in the form an x n + an-1x n-1 + Á + a1x + a0, where n is a nonnegative integer, the coefficients are real numbers, and an ? 0. The degree of the polynomial is n, the leading coefficient is an, the leading term is anxn, and the constant term is a0. (The number 0 is the zero polynomial)

• Probability simulation

A numerical simulation of a probability experiment in which assigned numbers appear with the same probabilities as the outcomes of the experiment.

• Pythagorean identities

sin2 u + cos2 u = 1, 1 + tan2 u = sec2 u, and 1 + cot2 u = csc2 u

• Random variable

A function that assigns real-number values to the outcomes in a sample space.

• Reference triangle

For an angle ? in standard position, a reference triangle is a triangle formed by the terminal side of angle ?, the x-axis, and a perpendicular dropped from a point on the terminal side to the x-axis. The angle in a reference triangle at the origin is the reference angle

• Reflection

Two points that are symmetric with respect to a lineor a point.

• Row operations

See Elementary row operations.

• Zero factor property

If ab = 0 , then either a = 0 or b = 0.
