ary 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 courses and careers in accounting, marketing, retailing, banking, office administration, finance, insurance, real estate and business administration. In addition, it is ideal for use in small businesses or for personal consumer needs. This is not just a textbook, but a "reference manual" for consumers and businesspersons, alike. Packed with current real-life examples, discussion 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. He equips students with a solid mathematical foundation as well as a true business learning experience. 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. The brief edition contains 14 chapters, including the chapter on mortgages - which is where our competition falls short. This chapter is not included in the competitions brief editions. In keeping with the philosophy of "practice makes perfect" the text contains over 2,000 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.
