Algebra and Trigonometry (7th Edition)

This market-leading textual content keeps to supply scholars and teachers with sound, continuously dependent factors of the mathematical techniques. Designed for a two-term path, the hot 7th variation keeps the positive aspects that experience made Algebra and Trigonometry an entire resolution for either scholars and teachers: attention-grabbing functions, state of the art layout, and cutting edge know-how mixed with an abundance of conscientiously written routines.
