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 zcomponents 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.

Higherdegree 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.
