Business Algebra, 2nd edition, by Kelly MacArthur is the ideal text for instructors who want simple, organized and straightforward materials with a focus on example problems. While the most efficient solutions are presented in the text, MacArthur strongly believes that there are an infinite number of ways to solve any particular problem and that a student learns more from the journey to the solution than from the destination itself. The WebAssign component of this title features an interactive eBook.
