The purpose of this book is to teach the basic principles of problem solving, including both mathematical and nonmathematical problems. This book will help students to ... translate verbal discussions into analytical data. learn problem-solving methods for attacking collections of analytical questions or data. build a personal arsenal of internalized problem-solving techniques and solutions. become ``armed problem solvers'', ready to do battle with a variety of puzzles in different areas of life. Taking a direct and practical approach to the subject matter, Krantz's book stands apart from others like it in that it incorporates exercises throughout the text. After many solved problems are given, a ``Challenge Problem'' is presented. Additional problems are included for readers to tackle at the end of each chapter. There are more than 350 problems in all. This book won the CHOICE Outstanding Academic Book Award for 1997. A Solutions Manual to most end-of-chapter exercises is available.of that last breath in each of the other breaths (for there is one of Caesara#39;s molecules for each of the breaths in the atmosphere). ... And the process of making the calculation precise introduces us to a major problem with scientific computing. ... So the probability that every molecule in your next breath is non- Caesarian is the product of the number in line (*) with itself I022 ... Now here is the rub: if you punch in the number 1 - 10-22 on your calculator, you will just get 1 a because youranbsp;...
