A third fundamental aspect was the concern about the trinomial collection-analysis-verification.
To face this challenge, the clinical management approach we defend recognizes the importance of subjects involved in relationships established in comprehensive care and in the consequent learning processes, conceived within the healthcare-management-education trinomial. Therefore, health managers and professionals should build common objectives, for which they share knowledge and professional effort, and in which they are equally involved.

To investigate the unexpected relationship between Y and ER, we re-estimated both models after replacing the variable InE[R.sub.t] in the two equations with a nonlinear quadratic trinomial of ER, as the graph of the exchange rate is parabolic.
The trinomial tree (Figure 2) is fully specified by the value of the risk-free rate and rating assessment at each node of the tree, where there are nine probabilities for moving to one of nine possible states in the subsequent time node at each node.
After several such examples, the students should be asked to explore ways to find the final trinomial answer to the product without writing out the steps of the distributive property.
