- Numerous economic and business applications relate maths to the real world
- Features new to this edition:

- A chapter on difference and differential equations.
- Additional material on geometric series
- Sections on index numbers and inflation
- ‘What students need is practice, practice, practice; and Jacques offers more opportunity for practice than other textbooks.’
- June Lewis, Sheffield University
