A SHORT RULE. Note. The value of 100 lbs. of any article will be just as many dollars as the article is cents a pound.
For 100 lb. at 1 cent per lb.=100 cents=1 dollar.
100 lb. of beef at 4 cents a lb. comes to 400 cents=4 dollars, &c.
DIVISION OF WHOLE NUMBERS. SIMPLE DIVISION teaches to find how many times one whole number is contained in another; and also what remains; and is a concise way of performing several subtractions.
Four principai parts are to be noticed in Division : ; 1. The Dividend, or number given to be divided.. 2. The Divisor, or number given to divide by.
3. The Quotient, or answer to the question, which shows how many times the divisor is contained in the dividend.
4. The Remainder, which is always less than the di
br, and of the same name with the Dividend. mine
RULE. st, seek how many times the divisor is contained in ay of the left hand figures of the dividend as are queesary
oceany, (that is, and the greatest figura that the 22.
isor can be multiplied by, so as to produce a product it shall not exceed the part of the diviilend used) when nd, place the figure in the quotient ; multiply the di.
sor by this quotient figure; place the product under 1. jat part of the dividend used; then subtract it therethan them, and bring down the next figure of the dividend to 2. W right hand of the remainder, after which, you must
; ana thek, multiply and sustract, till you have brought down 3. "ery figure of the dividend.
Proof. Multiply the H and quotient to 4. Froadd
Pero add the remainder if there be any to the prodys. . Now if avork be right, the sum wil be equal to the directly towards 1 bow far
nother method which some make me of to pane pa y follows: viz. Add the remainder and
several quotient figures multiplied

0 Rem. together, according to the order in which they stand in the work ; and this sum, when the work is right will be equal to the dividend.
A third method of proof by excess of nines is as follows, viza
1. Cas. the nines out of the divisor and place the excess on the left hand.
2. Do the same with the quotient and place it on the right hand.
3. Multiply these two figures together, and add tbeir product to the remainder, and reject the nines and place the ex. cess at top.
4. Casi the nines out of the dividend and place the excest at bottom.
Note. If the sum it right the top and botton be alike.

.0 CASE II. When there are cyphers at the right hand of the divi. şor; cut off the cyphers in the divisor, and the same
number of figures from the right hand of the diviilend de, then divide the remaining ones as usual, aad to the re
pander (if any) annex those figures cut off from the divi
nd, and you will have the true remainder.
