By James J. Reynolds Ronald J. Harshbarger

MATHEMATICAL functions FOR THE administration, lifestyles, AND SOCIAL SCIENCES, ninth version is meant for a two-semester utilized calculus or mixed finite arithmetic and utilized calculus path. The book's concept-based process, a number of presentation tools, and engaging and correct purposes hold scholars who more often than not take the course--business, economics, existence sciences, and social sciences majors--engaged within the fabric. This version broadens the book's real-life context via including a couple of environmental technological know-how and fiscal functions. using modeling has been improved, with modeling difficulties now sincerely categorised within the examples. additionally incorporated within the 9th variation is a quick assessment of algebra to arrange scholars with assorted backgrounds for the cloth in later chapters.

This is accomplished by multiplying the numerator and the denominator by the expression that will remove the radical. This process is called rationalizing the denominator. ● EXAMPLE 9 Rationalizing Denominators Express each of the following with no radicals in the denominator.
