NOTE: This edition features the same content as the traditional text in a convenient, threeholepunched, looseleaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value; this format costs significantly less than a new textbook. Before purchasing, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. For Books a la Carte editions that include MyLab™ or Mastering™, several versions may exist for each title—including customized versions for individual schools—and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a Course ID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use MyLab or Mastering platforms.
For onesemester courses in Finite Math & Applied Calculus or Mathematics for Business.
This package includes MyLab Math.
Builtin guidance that helps students “get the idea.”
College Mathematics for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences, 14th Edition offers more builtin guidance than any other text in its field — with special emphasis on prerequisites skills — and a host of studentfriendly features to help students catch up or learn on their own. The text’s emphasis on helping students “get the idea” is enhanced in the new edition by a design refresh, updated data and applications, and a robust MyLab™ Math course.
Personalize learning with MyLab Math
By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab Math personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.

Raymond A. Barnett, a native of California, received his B.A. in mathematical statistics from the University of California at Berkeley and his M.A. in mathematics from the University of Southern California. He has been a member of the Merritt College Mathematics Department, and was chairman of the department for four years. Raymond Barnett has authored or coauthored eighteen textbooks in mathematics, most of which are still in use. In addition to international English editions, a number of books have been translated into Spanish.
Michael R. Ziegler (late) received his B.S. from Shippensburg State College and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Delaware. After completing post doctoral work at the University of Kentucky, he was appointed to the faculty of Marquette University where he held the rank of Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science. Dr. Ziegler published over a dozen research articles in complex analysis and coauthored eleven undergraduate mathematics textbooks with Raymond A. Barnett, and more recently, Karl E. Byleen.
Karl E. Byleen received his B.S., M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics from the University of Nebraska. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science of Marquette University. He has published a dozen research articles on the algebraic theory of semigroups.
Christopher Stocker received his B.S. in mathematics and computer science from St. John’s University in Minnesota and his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics from the University of Illinois in UrbanaChampaign. He is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science of Marquette University. He has published eight research articles in the areas of graph theory and combinatorics.
