Description

An essential resource for anyone studying mathematics as part of their economics, management or business course.

Mathematics for Economics and Business assumes very little prior knowledge of maths, starting with the basics and gradually building up to more advanced topics, making is suitable for use on both low- and high-level quantitative methods courses.

Now in its ninth edition, the book has added even more examples and practice questions, encouraging students to tackle problems for themselves as they read through each section. Worked examples clearly illustrate the link between maths and the business world and more challenging questions for those with advanced mathematical knowledge are included in starred sections. Detailed solutions to all questions are provided so that students can check their own progress, making it an ideal text for self-study.

 

 

 

MyLabMathGlobal not included. Students, if MyLabMathGlobal is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyLabMathGlobal should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. 

 

Features
