Retaining his highly effective and time-tested style and approach, Michael Sullivan has updated the 9th edition of his acclaimed bestseller, College Algebra, to provide students an exceptional tool for learning basic algebra. The book focuses on the fundamentals, prepping learners for more challenging lessons in the future. It has been integrated with more homework and review concepts, along with other learning tools that can be used in their personal study time or in the classroom. Some key concepts discussed include inequalities and equations, functions and polynomials, conics, logarithmic functions, probability, and sequences. The review section discusses fundamentals such as real numbers, the essentials of algebra and geometry, polynomials, and how to factor polynomials. Additional topics include synthetic division, nth roots, rational expressions, and rational exponents. The first chapter talks about equations and inequalities, including linear and quadratic equations, complex numbers, and their use in problems involving mixture, interest, constant rate gob, uniform motion, etc. Following these basic concepts are discussions about graphs, lines, circles and variation, as well as graphs of equations with two variables, symmetry and intercepts. Michael Sullivan's College Algebra (9th Edition) ISBN 9780321716811 also discusses linear and quadratic functions, plus inequalities that involve quadratic functions. The book tackles polynomial and rational functions, their properties, models, and how to graph rational functions. Exponential and Logarithmic Functions are likewise discussed, including sub-topics such as composite functions, properties of logarithms, compound interest, etc. Systems of Equations and inequalities follow in the next chapters, along with sequences and the binomial theorem. The book concludes with counting and probability. The appendix section is very useful and comes complete with graphing utilities. This edition is especially designed for those taking up introductory courses in algebra, as well as those who want to review fundamental concepts of college-level mathematics.
