Mathematics is a useful subject not only the students of natural sciences and technology but also to the students of social sciences. Business Mathematics became an integral part of the present commercial management. Post graduate students of Commerce and Business Administration and other professional students doing their C.As and ICWAS are studying Business Mathematics. Further business mathematics is also useful for various competitive examinations. Keeping these in view this book has been prepared.
The book has been dealt with all the chapters of business mathematics. In preparing this book the authors have consulted question papers of different universities. The solved papers are arranged ranging from simple to the most complex. And at the same time care has been taken to cover all the methods regarding each chapter. This is the sincere attempt to help the students to overcome difficulties in solving practicals problems. The efforts aim at enriching the ability of the students to solve the problems and grow from strength to strength. Students are adviced not to consult the answers straightly but first they are expected to attempt to solve the problems themselves and then consult the answers. And they can compare their answers to the answers furnished here together with the required notes and other special notes. (jacket)
