Preface This manual contains solutions to all exercises in the text, except those odd-numbered exercises for which fairly lengthy complete solutions are given in the answers at the back of the text. Then reference is simply given to the text answers to save typing. I prepared these solutions myself. While I tried to be accurate, there are sure to be the inevitable mistakes and typos. An author reading proof rends to see what he or she wants to see. However, the instructor should find this manual adequate for the purpose for which it is intended.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
