For $100, the answer is:
They are functions that cannot be exactly
evaluated by a finite sequence of the algebraic operations of addition, multiplication, and root
taking. Examples are the trigonometric, logarithm, and exponential functions.”

16. “Let’s play
Jeopardy
! For $100, the answer is: They are functions whose argument is an angle
and which yield the ratios of sides of a right triangle (or rightangled triangle). The functions
are extended so that the argument angle can be any value (i.e., greater than 90
◦
and less than
0
◦
).
In these cases, the triangle can be thought of as plotted on the Cartesian plane and as
having positive or negative sides depending on quadrant where the hypotenuse vector lies.”
