NOTE: This edition features the same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value; this format costs significantly less than a new textbook. Before purchasing, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. For Books a la Carte editions that include MyLab™ or Mastering™, several versions may exist for each title–including customized versions for individual schools–and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a Course ID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use MyLab or Mastering platforms.

**A strong foundation and logical progression through finite math and calculus**

The unique organization of ** Mathematics with Applications in the Management, Natural, and Social Sciences **gives students four chapters of college algebra, rather than the usual two, before moving into finite math and calculus. From there, the authors build upon familiar foundations and then move to new concepts; students are shown concrete examples before learning general rules and formulas.

With an ongoing focus on real-world problem solving, almost every section in the **12th Edition** includes relevant, contemporary applications and fine-tuned pedagogical devices. A prior course in basic algebra is assumed.

**Also available with MyLab Math **

By combining trusted authors’ content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab™ personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.

Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MyLab Math does not come packaged with this content. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with MyLab Math, ask your instructor to confirm the correct package ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
