All real data in exercises and examples have been updated to reflect current statistics and information. This edition features more Writing Exercises to reinforce critical-thinking skills and additional multi-part True/False Questions in the end-of-section and chapter review exercise sets to encourage students to think about mathematics from different perspectives.
