Help with Symbols??? [#permalink] New post 11 Sep 2006, 07:29
For anybody out there, please help!

I'm a Comms major trying to make it big in business and naturally my experience with algebra, et al, has been slim to none for some time now. I'm trying to utilize any and all resources to learn, but i'm continually stumped by what some of the symbols mean for the online examples.

For example: a^2*b +b^2*c + c^2*a >= 3abc

I'm just starting out; so if someone would be kind enough to let me know what "^" stands for; as well as any other symbols like it, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance for your time and effort!!!!!
