ICANT LOCATE THE AUTHOR OF A AMATH BOOKLET. THE PUBLISHER NAMED THE AUTHOR , BUT THE COPYRIGHT SYMBOL WAS AFTER THE PUBLISHERING CORP NAME. CANI USE THE MATERIAL FOR PROFIT?
State/Country relating to question: Georgia
SEARCHED FOR PUBLISHER (OUT OF BUSINESS), SEARCHED FOR AUTHORS WHERE ABOUTS - CANT FIND HER.
Unfortunately, even if you can't find the copyright owner, copying the book is a copyright violation. Is there a way you can take the ideas here (ie the concepts behind the problems) without copying the book itself? Copyright doesn't protect ideas, but it does protect the actual book and problems itself.
Hope that helps. Good luck.
Did you have a follow-up question? I see you gave a very negative rating. Happy to help further if you have other questions or need more information.
