This edition features the exact 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.
Finite Mathematics and Calculus with Applications, Ninth Edition, by Lial, Greenwell, and Ritchey, is our most applied text to date, making the math relevant and accessible for students of business, life science, and social sciences.
