Mathematics for BusinessMathematics

Featuring a deemphasis of mathematical detail and an emphasis
on techniques, this volume focuses on the applications of basic mathematics,
algebra, finite mathematics, and differential and integral calculus
in the fields of business and economics, and the social and life
sciences.
uses an intuitive approach — all mathematical theorems,
proofs, concepts and ideas are first described intuitively and conversationally;
then worked out mathematically.
features an abundance of stepbystep worked out examples
and procedures (with solutions in full detail).
integrates a great number and variety of carefully chosen
applications throughout.
offers a diversity of exercises (5000 total) including true/false and
applied word problems (with answers to oddnumbered exercises).
uses boxes to emphasize major formulas and results, and
features marginal “think boxes” related directly to adjacent
discussions.
