Multiply by its factors in succession.

Examples.

149i When the multiplier is not a composite number, and exceeds 12; or when a composite number one of whose factors exceeds 12.

Ex. 1. What is the value of 453 tons of iron at 18£. 17s. lid. a ton?

[ocr errors]

10 tons = 188 19 2, X 5 = 944 15 10 = Value of 50 tons

10

100 tons =1889 11 8,X4=7558 6 8 = Value of 400 ton»

Ans. 8559 16 3 = Value of 453 tons.

Since 453 is not a composite number, we cannot resolve it into factors; but we may separate it into parts, and find the value of each part separately: Thus, 453 = 400 50 -f- 3. In the operation, we first multiply by 10, and obtain the value of 10 tons, and this product we multiply by 10, and obtain the value of 100 tons. Then, to find the value of 400 tons, we multiply the last product by 4; and to find the value of 50 tons, we multiply the value of 10 tons by 5; and to find the value of 3 tons, we multiply the value of 1 ton by 3. Adding the several products, we obtain 8559£. 16s. 3d. for the answer. Hence,

Having resolved the multiplier into any convenient parts, as of units, tens, Sfc., multiply by these several parts, and add together the products thus obtained for the required result.

DIVISION OF COMPOUND NUMBERS.

150. Division of Compound Numbers is the process of dividing compound numbers into any proposed number of equal parts.

Ex. 1. Divide 139£. 13s. lid. 2far. equally between 5 persons. Ans. 27£. 18s. 9d. 2far.

operation. Having divided 139£. by 5, we find

£. a. d. far. the quotient to be 27£., and 4£. re5)139 13 11 2 maining. We place the quotient 27£.

———— —- under the 139£., and the remainder

2 7 1 8 9 2 4£. reduced to shillings = 80s.; 80s.

-J- the 13s. in the dividend = 93s.; 93s. -f- 5 = 18s. and a remainder of 3s. We write the quotient 18s. under the shillings in the dividend; and the remainder 3s. reduced to pence = 36d.; 36d. -f- lid. in the dividend = 47d.; 4 7d. + 5 = 9d. and a remainder of 2d. We write the quotient 9d. under the pence in the dividend; and the remainder 2d. reduced to farthings = 8far., -f- the 2far. in the dividend = l0far.; l0far. -f- 5 = 2far. The quotient 2far. we write under the farthings in the dividend; and thus find the answer to be 27£. 18s. 9d. 2far.

Rule. Divide as in division of simple numbers, each denomination in its order, beginning with the highest.

If there be a remainder, reduce it to the next lower denomination, adding in the number already contained in the dividend of this denomination, if any, and divide as before.

Proof. — The same as in simple numbers.

Note. — When the divisor and dividend are both compound numbers, they must be reduced to the same denomination, and the division then is that of simple numbers.

Examples.

151. When the divisor is a composite number, and none of its factors exceed 12.

Ex. 1. If 35 loads of coal weigh 72T. 14cwt. 2qr. 101b., what will 1 load weigh?

Operation. We find the fac

'° weight of 3o loads

2 12 6 = weight of 1 load. by 5, and obtain

the weight of 7

loads; and the weight of 7 loads we divide by 7, and thus find the weight of 1 load. Hence, when the divisor is a composite number,

Divide by its factors in succession.
