### Basic Engineering Mathematics (5th Edition)

Description
Basic Engineering Mathematics 5th Edition introduces and then consolidates basic mathematical principles and promotes awareness of mathematical concepts for students needing a broad base for further vocational studies.

In thisfifth edition, newmaterial has been added tomany of the chapters, particularly some of the earlier chapters, togetherwith extra practical problems interspersed throughout the text. The extent of this fifth edition is such that four chapters from the previous edition have been removed and placed on the easily available. The chapters removed to the website are ‘Number sequences’, ‘Binary, octal and hexadecimal’, ‘Inequalities’ and ‘Graphs with logarithmic scales’.
