Tax Extension. Tax extension clerks compute what each property holder must pay for the several purposes for which taxes are exacted. To aid in doing this work extensive tables are usually provided by which the tax on any assessed value at any give rate may be found without arithmetical process,-by mere reference to the tables. Such tables cannot be presented within the limits of an ordinary arithmetic. In the tax extension required on page 292, the following substitute for these tables may be employed to advantage. This table shows the tax on any number of hundred dollars from 1 to 9. It is apparent that the tax on any number of thousands of dollars would be ten times as much as the amount shown in the table; on any number of tens of dollars, one tenth as much, etc. "R. & B." stands for Road and Bridge; "Lib.," for Library.

Make an enlarged copy of the above upon which extend the taxes of A, B, C, etc. NOTE. It will be well for the student to find each tax item (1) by means of the table given on the preceding page and (2) by finding the product of the assessed value and the rate. The two results should be identical. Find the total of each person's tax by adding the eight tax items. Prove the work by finding the tax of each person, at $6.51 per hundred dollars of assessed valuation. The amount thus found will be a few cents less than the amount found by adding.
