I am looking for a book recommendations for learning algebra for high school.
Usually my exams(national level competitions) may even ask some of the things that are a bit beyond the syllabus, and have really hard problems. So I want a book that goes over both theory in some detail and also contains hard problems and maybe a few tricks.
I am looking for a book in algebra that goes over topics like:
[This is the prescribed syllabus]
Algebra of complex numbers, addition, multiplication, conjugation, polar representation, properties of modulus and principal argument, triangle inequality, cube roots of unity, geometric interpretations.
Quadratic equations with real coefficients, relations between roots and coefficients, formation of quadratic equations with given roots, symmetric functions of roots.
Arithmetic, geometric and harmonic progressions, arithmetic, geometric and harmonic means, sums of finite arithmetic and geometric progressions, infinite geometric series, sums of squares and cubes of the first n natural numbers.
Logarithms and their properties.
Permutations and combinations, binomial theorem for a positive integral index, properties of binomial coefficients
Please can someone help me ?? :)
