...terms, or its numerator and denominator, by the same number. For from this it follows also, that if we **divide the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same number,** the fraction still preserves the same value. This is made more evident by means of the general expression... | |

...of the numerator being less than the denominator. The consequence of this is, that to multiply both **the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same number, does not alter its value;** and, therefore, to convert a vulgar fraction into a decimal one, we have only to multiply the numerator... | |

...operations of addition, subtraction, &c. I. Reduce ff § to its lowest terms. As dividing the two terms **of a fraction by the same number does not alter its value,** we may here divide the 288 and 480 by any number that will divide both without a remainder. 12 We first... | |

...working this t Do it mentally. Show by measure (having divided a line into equal parts), that to multiply **the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same number does not alter** their value, and results in the same length or quantity. Explain how that fact facilitates the addition... | |
