    The annual interest rate

  • Complex number

    An expression a + bi, where a (the real part) and b (the imaginary part) are real numbers

  • Convergence of a series

    A series aqk=1 ak converges to a sum S if imn: q ank=1ak = S

  • DMS measure

    The measure of an angle in degrees, minutes, and seconds

  • Dot product

    The number found when the corresponding components of two vectors are multiplied and then summed

  • Interquartile range

    The difference between the third quartile and the first quartile.

  • Local extremum

    A local maximum or a local minimum

  • Measure of an angle

    The number of degrees or radians in an angle

  • Probability of an event in a finite sample space of equally likely outcomes

    The number of outcomes in the event divided by the number of outcomes in the sample space.

  • Rectangular coordinate system

    See Cartesian coordinate system.

  • Regression model

    An equation found by regression and which can be used to predict unknown values.

  • Slope-intercept form (of a line)

    y = mx + b
