Product description

Higher Algebra - A Sequel to Elementary Algebra for Schools

"The present work is intended as a sequel to our Elementary Algebra for Schools. The first few chapters are devoted to a fuller discussion of Ratio, Proportion, Variation, and the Progressions, which in the former work were treated in an elementary manner; and we have here introduced theorems and examples which are unsuitable for a first course of reading.
From this point the work covers ground for the most part new to the student, and enters upon subjects of special importance: these we have endeavoured to treat minutely and thoroughly, discussing both bookwork and examples with that fullness which we have always found necessary in our experience as teachers."

The book has chapters:
I Ratio
II Proportion
III Variation
IV Arithmetical Progression
V Geometrical Progression
VI Harmonical Progression. Theorems connected with the Progressions
VII Scales of Notation
VIII Surds and Imaginary Quantities
IX The Theory of Quadratic Equations
X Miscellaneous Equations
XI Permutations and Combinations
XII Mathematical Induction
XIII Binomial Theorem. Positive Integral Index
XIV Binomial Theorem. Any Index
XV Multinomial Theorem
XVI Logarithms
XVII Exponential and Logarithmic Series
XVIII Interest and Annuities
XIX Inequalities
XX Limiting Values and Vanishing Fractions
XXI Convergency and Divergency of Series
XXII Undetermined Coefficients
XXIII Partial Fractions
XXIV Recurring Series
XXV Continued Fractions
XXVI Indeterminate Equations of the First Degree
XXVII Recurring Continued Fractions
XXVIII Indeterminate Equations of the Second Degree
XXIX Summation of Series
XXX Theory of Numbers
XXXI The General Theory of Continued Fractions
XXXII Probability
XXXIII Determinants
XXXIV Miscellaneous Theorems and Examples
XXXV Theory of Equations

Book pages are in good condition, but with a few dog-ears., and some dirt at the edges.
Book cover has some wear and dirt but is also in good condition.
