Page 371 - The square described on the hypothenuse of a rightangled triangle is equal to the sum of the squares described on the other two sides.
Page 66 - The number to be divided is called the dividend. The number by which we divide is called the divisor.
Page 99 - The greatest common divisor of two or more numbers, is the greatest number which will divide them without a remainder. Thus 6 is the greatest common divisor of 12, 18, 24, and 30.
Page 17 - It shows that the numbers between which it is placed are to be multiplied together ; thus, the expression 7 x 5 = 35 is read, 7 multiplied by 5 is equal to 35.

Page 206 - RULE. Divide as in whole numbers, and from the right hand of the quotient point off as many places for decimals as the decimal places in the dividend exceed those in the divisor.
Page 44 - PROOF.—Add the remainder to the smaller number ; and if the sum is equal to the larger number, the work is right. OBS. This method of proof depends upon the principle, that the difference between two numbers being added to the less, the sum must be equal to the greater.
Page 368 - Multiply the divisor, thus increased, by the last figure of the root; subtract the product from the dividend, and to the remainder bring down the next period for a new dividend.
