Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Absolute maximum

A value ƒ(c) is an absolute maximum value of ƒ if ƒ(c) ? ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of ƒ.

• Absolute minimum

A value ƒ(c) is an absolute minimum value of ƒ if ƒ(c) ? ƒ(x)for all x in the domain of ƒ.

• Branches

The two separate curves that make up a hyperbola

• Component form of a vector

If a vector’s representative in standard position has a terminal point (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) , then (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) is the component form of the vector, and a and b are the horizontal and vertical components of the vector (or a, b, and c are the x-, y-, and z-components of the vector, respectively)

• Constant

A letter or symbol that stands for a specific number,

• Continuous at x = a

lim x:a x a ƒ(x) = ƒ(a)

• Conversion factor

A ratio equal to 1, used for unit conversion

• Dependent event

An event whose probability depends on another event already occurring

• Factored form

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

• Finite series

Sum of a finite number of terms.

• Higher-degree polynomial function

A polynomial function whose degree is ? 3

• Intermediate Value Theorem

If ƒ is a polynomial function and a < b , then ƒ assumes every value between ƒ(a) and ƒ(b).

• Inverse reflection principle

If the graph of a relation is reflected across the line y = x , the graph of the inverse relation results.

• Irreducible quadratic over the reals

A quadratic polynomial with real coefficients that cannot be factored using real coefficients.

• Perihelion

The closest point to the Sun in a planet’s orbit.

• Pie chart

See Circle graph.

• Present value of an annuity T

he net amount of your money put into an annuity.

• Range of a function

The set of all output values corresponding to elements in the domain.

• Real part of a complex number

See Complex number.
