Intermediate Algebra is designed to provide your students with the algebra background needed for further college-level mathematics courses. The unifying theme of this text is the development of the skills necessary for solving equations and inequalities, followed by the application of those skills to solving applied problems. The primary goal in writing the fourth edition of Intermediate Algebra has been to retain the features that made the third edition so successful, while incorporating the comments and suggestions of third-edition users. As always, the author endeavors to write texts that students can read, understand, and enjoy, while gaining confidence in their ability to use mathematics.About the Author:
