Summary

Elementary Algebra, 6/e is part of the latest offerings in the successful Dugopolski series in mathematics. Given the importance of examples within a math book, the author has paid close attention to the most important details for solving the given topic. Dugopolski includes a double cross-referencing system between the examples and exercise sets, so no matter which one the students start with, they will see the connection to the other.
