By Earl Swokowski, Jeffery A. Cole

The most recent variation within the hugely revered Swokowski/Cole precalculus sequence keeps the weather that experience made it so well-liked by teachers and scholars alike: its exposition is apparent, the time-tested workout units characteristic quite a few functions, its uncluttered format is attractive, and the trouble point of difficulties is suitable and constant. Mathematically sound, ALGEBRA AND TRIGONOMETRY WITH ANALYTIC GEOMETRY, vintage version, 12E, successfully prepares scholars for additional classes in arithmetic via its first-class, time-tested challenge units.

A set is a collection of objects of some type, and the objects are called elements of the set. Capital letters R, S, T, . . are often used to denote sets, and lowercase letters a, b, x, y, . . usually represent elements of sets. Throughout this book, ޒdenotes the set of real numbers and ޚdenotes the set of integers.
