Logarithmick Arithmetick: Containing a New and Correct Table of Logarithms of the Natural Numbers from 1 to 10,000, Extended to Seven Places Besides the Index; and So Contrived, that the Logarithm May be Easily Found to Any Number Between 1 and 10,000,000. Also an Easy Method of Constructing a Table of Logarithms, Together with Their Numerous and Important Uses in the More Difficult Parts of Arithmetick. To which are Added a Number of Astronomical Tables ... and an Easy Method of Calculating Solar and Lunar Eclipses

Page 128 - ... sought. 3. Multiply the terms of the geometrical series together belonging to those indices, and make the product a dividend, 4. Raise the first term to a power whose index is one less than the number of the terms multiplied, and make the result a divisor. 5. Divide, and the quotient is the term sought. EXAMPLES. 4. If the first of a geometrical series be 4, and the ratio 3, what is the 7th term ? 0, 1, 2, 3, Indices.
Page 38 - Finally, multiplying the second and third terms together, divide the product by the first, and the quotient will be the answer in the same denomination as the third term.

Page 44 - In like manner, if any one index be subtracted from another, the difference will be the index of that number which is equal to the quotient of the two terms to which those indices belong.
Page 127 - RULE.* 1. Write down a few of the leading terms of the series, and place their indices over them, beginning with a cypher.
Page 114 - Let the farthings in the given pence and farthings possess the second and third places ; observing to increase the second place or place of hundredths, by 6 if the shillings be odd ; and the third place by 1 "when the farthings exceed 12, and by 2 when they exceed 36.
Page 125 - RULE. Multiply the sum of the extremes by the number of terms, and half the product will be the sum of the terms. EXAMPLES FOR PRACTICE. 2. If the extremes be 5 and 605, and the number of terms 151, what is the sum of the series?
