In this example, we find that 6 0 6 9 multiplied by will produce the quantity 42 yards. We therefore 2 0 6= price of 6 yds. multiply 6s. 9d. first by the 6, and then its product by 7; and the last product, 14£. 3s. 6d. is the answer 14 3 6 = price of 42 yds. or price of the 42 yards. The pupil will now see the propriety of the following RULE. Multiply by one of the factors of the composite number, and the product thus obtained by the other. 37. What will 16 yards of velvet cost, at 3s. 8d. per yard ? 38. What will 72 yards of broadcloth cost, at 19s. 11d. per 39. What will 84 yards of cotton cost, at ls. 11d. per yard ? 40. Bought 90 hogsheads of sugar, each weighing 12cwt. 2gr. lllb. ; what was the weight of the whole ? 41. What cost 18 sheep, at 5s. 9 d. a piece ? 44. If 1 share in a certain stock be valued at 13£. 8s. 9 d., what is the value of 96 shares ? 45. If 1 spoon weigh 3oz. 5dwt. 15gr., what is the weight of 120 spoons ? 46. If a man travel 24m. 7fur. 4rd. in 1 day, how far will he go in 1 month : 47. If the earth revolve 0° 15' per minute, how far per hour ? 48. Multiply 39A. 3R. 17p. 30yd. 8ft. 100in. by 32. 49. If a man be 2d. 5h. 17m. 19sec. in walking 1 degree, how long would it take him to walk round the earth, allowing 3651 days to a year? CASE III. When the multiplier is such a number as cannot be produced by the product of two or more numbers, we should proceed as in the following EXAMPLE e 50. What is the value of 53 tons of iron, at 18£. 175. 11d. a ton? to i ii 3 94 9 7 = price of 5 tons. 56 13 9=price of 3 tons. 10 944 15 10 price of 50 tons. Because 53 is a prime 56 13 9= price of 3 tons. number, that is, it cannot be 1001 97= price of 53 tons. produced by the product of 10 any two numbers ; we therefore find a convenient composite number less than the given number, viz. 50, which may be produced by multiplying 5 by 10. Having found the price of 50 tons by the last Case, we then find the price of the 3 remaining tons by Case I., and add it to the former, making the value of the whole quantity 1001£. 9s. 7d. |
