This book presents the content and applications in an accessible manner while maintaining an appropriate level of rigor. The authors proceed from familiar material to new, and from concrete examples to general rules and formulas. This edition retains its focus on real-world problem solving, but has been refreshed with a wealth of new data in the examples and exercises-39% of the 623 examples are new or revised, and 28% of the 5,288 exercises are new or revised. Algebra and Equations; Graphs, Lines, and Inequalities; Functions and Graphs; Exponential and Logarithmic Functions; Mathematics of Finance; Systems of Linear Equations and Matrices; Linear Programming; Sets and Probability; Counting, Probability Distributions, and Further Topics in Probability; Introduction to Statistics; Differential Calculus; Applications of the Derivative; Integral Calculus; Multivariate Calculus. For all readers interested in mathematics with applications.
