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
