Part of book that follows a chapter (end-of-chapter appendix) or, more commonly, that comes after all the chapters (end-of-book appendix). An appendix contains supplemental material, such as tables or source material, which does not conveniently fit into a chapter.

An appendix is a document that is attached to the end of a book or article to give additional information.

Appendices are often used to hold tables, lists or figures that could break up the flow of the main text, or provide extra information that would be distracting if placed within the main text. Appendices can also be used to include detailed information or data that would be too long or complicated to include in the main text.

When an appendix is used, it is usually mentioned in the text of the main document so that readers know that there is additional information available. The appendix can then be found at the end of the document.

An appendix is a section at the end of a document that provides supplementary information. It is typically used to include data, charts, tables, graphs, or other material that is too detailed or too extensive to be included in the main body of the document.

Appendices are useful for organizing complex information so that readers can easily access and understand it. By placing this information in an appendix, it is possible to keep the main body of the document focused and concise.

Appendices can also be used to include material that is not essential to the main argument of the document but that could be of interest to some readers. For example, an appendix might be used to include a copy of a primary source document or an excerpt from a longer text.

In general, appendices should be used sparingly and only when absolutely necessary. Overuse of appendices can make a document appear disorganized and can be off-putting to readers. When in doubt, it is usually best to include the relevant information in the main body of the text.
