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
Completing the square
A method of adding a constant to an expression in order to form a perfect square
Components of a vector
See Component form of a vector.
Interest that becomes part of the investment
A third variable that affects either of two variables being studied, making inferences about causation unreliable
Degree of a polynomial (function)
The largest exponent on the variable in any of the terms of the polynomial (function)
The amount of time required for half of a radioactive substance to decay.
A graph that visually represents the information in a frequency table using rectangular areas proportional to the frequencies.
Instantaneous rate of change
See Derivative at x = a.
Inverse cotangent function
The function y = cot-1 x
Multiplicative identity for matrices
See Identity matrix
The multiplicity of a zero c of a polynomial ƒ(x) of degree n > 0 is the number of times the factor (x - c) (x - z 2) Á (x - z n)
A process for gathering data from a subset of a population through current or past observations. This differs from an experiment in that no treatment is imposed.
An arrangement of elements of a set, in which order is important.
The numbers (r, ?) that determine a point’s location in a polar coordinate system. The number r is the directed distance and ? is the directed angle
Quotient rule of logarithms
logb a R S b = logb R - logb S, R > 0, S > 0
The principle of experimental design that makes it possible to use the laws of probability when making inferences.
Solution of an equation or inequality
A value of the variable (or values of the variables) for which the equation or inequality is true
