This second edition of A Beginneras Guide to Finite Mathematics takes a distinctly applied approach to finite mathematics at the freshman and sophomore level. Topics are presented sequentially: the book opens with a brief review of sets and numbers, followed by an introduction to data sets, histograms, means and medians. Counting techniques and the Binomial Theorem are covered, which provides the foundation for elementary probability theory; this, in turn, leads to basic statistics. This new edition includes chapters on game theory and financial mathematics. Requiring little mathematical background beyond high school algebra, the text will be especially useful for business and liberal arts majors.A roulette wheel in Las Vegas contains 38 numbered spaces. Two are green, 18 red or 18 black. You bet on black. Given that you lose, what is the probability that red wins? In Exercise 4, what are the conditional probabilities of the followinganbsp;...
