Description

For courses in business mathematics at the freshman/sophomore levels.

 

Mathematics for Business provides practical, up-to-date coverage of the mathematical techniques students must master to succeed in business today. Covering more algebra than competing books, it looks at a range of topics such as payroll records, inflation and the time value of money, range and standard deviation and index numbers. Examples and problems relate to real world events and personal finance issues so material is relevant to students. This tenth edition is supported by MyMathLab, includes over 150 new problems, uses Apple as a case study illustration, and addresses the global financial crisis and personal debt.
