For courses in business mathematics at the freshman/sophomore levels, including courses where instructors demand somewhat more rigor than competitive texts permit.
Mathematics for Business provides solid, practical, up-to-date coverage of the mathematical techniques students must master to succeed in business today. This Ninth Edition takes a more integrated, holistic approach, and places far greater emphasis on analysis. Business statistics coverage has been moved towards the front, where students are taught to read and interpret graphs and tables; these skills are repeatedly reinforced throughout. Scores of new examples include visual Stop & Think sections that help students understand current events. This text includes algebra where needed to impart real understanding, and covers crucial topics other books ignore, including reading financial statements.
