Page 117 - Find a common measure, by dividing the greater term by the less, and this divisor by the remainder, and so on, always dividing the last divisor by the last remainder, till nothing remains; the last divisor is the common measure.* 2. Divide both of the terms of the fraction by the common measure, aud the quotients will make the fraction required. * To find the greatest common measure...
Page 188 - Compute the interest to the time of the first payment ; if that be one year or more from the time the interest commenced, add it to the principal, and deduct the payment from the sum total. If there, be after payments made, compute the interest on the balance due to the next payment, and then deduct the payment as above; and, in like manner, from one payment to another, till all the payments are absorbed ; provided the time between one payment and another be one year or more.

Page 256 - Multiply the last term by the ratio, from the product subtract the first term, and divide the remainder by the ratio, less 1; the quotient will be the sum of the series required.
Page 237 - Multiply the divisor, thus augmented, by the last figure of the root, and subtract the product from the dividend, and to the remainder bring down the next period for a new dividend.
Page 217 - Lastly, multiply the third term by the continued product of the second terms, and divide the result by the continued product of the first terms, and the quotient will be the fourth term, or answer required.
Page 45 - Multiplication is the process of taking one number as many times as there are units in another number. The PRODUCT is the result of the multiplication.
Page 188 - But if any payments be made before one year's interest hath accrued, then compute the interest on the principal sum due on the obligation, for one year, add it to the principal, and compute the interest on the sum paid, from the time it was paid, up to the end of the...
Page 123 - Multiply the numerators together for a new numerator, and the denominators together for a new denominator.
Page 19 - The circumference of every circle is supposed to be divided into 360 equal parts, called degrees ; and each degree into 60 equal parts, called minutes ; and each minute into 60 equal parts, called seconds ; and these into thirds, etc.
