...idea which we have given of multiplication, we see that we could perform this operation by writing **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** and afterward performing the addition. For instance, to multiply 7 by 3, we could write 7 + 7 + 7,... | |

...a fraction? for doubtless it has appeared rather strange. In multiplying by a whole number we take **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier;** and in multiplying by one then, how many times do you take the multiplicand! Ans. 1. Give an example... | |

...answer by adding ; but when the multiplier is a large number, it would be very tedious to set down **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** and be obliged to add them up. This shows the great utility of multiplication. 8. What is the price... | |

...to multiplication by positive whole numbers. This, according to the definition (Art. 90.) is taking **the multiplicand as many times, as there are units in the multiplier.** Suppose a is to be multiplied by b, and that b stands for 3. There are, then, three units in the multiplier... | |

...to the left. SUPPLEMENT TO MULTIPLICATION. Multiplying by a mixed number, as 6J, 5J, &c. is taking **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier** ; and likewise taking a part of the multiplicand as many times as there are like portions of a unit... | |

...how many times the multiplicand is to be repeated, is called the multiplier. The number arising from **repeating the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** is called the product. § -29. The multiplicand and multiplier are factors, or producers, of the product.... | |

...amount, several times repeated, may be accomplished by Addition ; first, by writing down the figures of **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** in a column, and adding them up. But the end is attained much more quickly, more pleasantly, and with... | |

...b). MULTIPLICATION. 40. Algebraic multiplication has the same object as arithmetical, viz. to repeat **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier.** It is generally proved, in arithmetical treaties, that the product of two or more numbers is the same,... | |
