Contemporary Mathematics for Business and Consumers is an adventure into today's business world of the new millennium and it's associated mathematical procedures. The book is designed to provide solid mathematical preparation and foundation for students going on to various courses and careers.
Packed with current real-life examples, discussions and illustrations, it features today's most important and frequently used business math procedures and applications. Bob Brechner's expansive expertise, both inside and out of the classroom is reflected in the text's reader-friendly writing style.
The book begins with a business-oriented review of the basic operations, including whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. Once students have mastered these operations, they are introduced to the concept of basic equations and how equations are used to solve business problems. From that point, each chapter presents a business math topic that utilizes the student's knowledge of the basic operations and equations.
In keeping with the philosophy of "practice makes perfect" the text contains over 2000 realistic business math exercises-many with multiple steps and answers-designed to prepare students to use math to make business decisions and develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
