The publication first offers information on linear equations in two unknowns and variables, functions, and graphs. Discussions focus on graphic interpretations, explicit and implicit functions, first quadrant graphs, variables and functions, determinate and indeterminate systems, independent and dependent equations, and defective and redundant systems. The text then examines quadratic equations in one variable, systems involving quadratics, and determinants. Topics include determinants of higher order, application of Cramer's rule, second-order determinants, systems linear in quadratic terms, systems treatable by substitution, systems with a linear equation, and other systems treated by comparison. The manuscript ponders on trigonometric functions and equations, straight lines, and points, distances, and slopes, including intersection points of lines, perpendicular distances, angles between lines, positions of points, inverse trigonometric functions, and trigonometric equations. The publication is a valuable source of data for readers interested in intermediate algebra and analytic geometry.
