OPERATION. 4. Divide 12332655 by 999. Ans. 12345. 5. Divide 987551235 by 9999. 6. Divide 9123456779876543211 by 999999999. Ans. 9123456789. 97.° Abbreviated method of long division. Ex. 1. Divide 34634 by 134. Ans. 258 The operation we perform 1 3 4 ) 3 4 6 3 4 ( 258 Ans. thus : finding the first quotient 7 8 3 figure to be 2, we say 4 x 2 6, 1134 and 1 carried 7; 14 7 7; 1 X 2 2, and 1 car62 ried 3 0. We now bring down 3, and find the next quotient figure to be 5, then, 4 X 5 = 20; 3 – 0 = 3; 3 X 5 = 15, and 2 carried =17; 8 – 7=1; 1 x 5 5, and 1 carried = 6; 7 - 6 = 1. We next bring down 4, and find the next quotient figure to be 8; then, 4 X 8= 32; 4 2 2 ; 3 X 8 24, and 3 carried 27; 13 — 7=6; 1 X 8 8, and 2 + 1 carried = 11; 1—1 0; 1—1= 0. Hence, this method is that of ordinary long division (Art. 73), abridged by subtracting each figure of the product of the divisor and a quotient figure, as it is obtained, and writing down only the remainders. 3; 3 EXAMPLES. 2.

Ex. 1. Divide 3692 by 8. Ans. 426. OPERATION, 313 € 83 6 9 2 We bring the divisor and divi3 3 dend to the same fractional parts as those denoted by the given 2 6 ) 1107 6 ( 4 2 6 Ans. fraction, which are thirds, by mul104 tiplying them both by 3, the num ber of thirds in 1. We thus change 67 the divisor to 26 thirds, and the 5 2 dividend to 3692 thirds, without 1 5 6 changing the quotient (Art. 83); 1 5 6 and dividing obtain 426, the answer required. RULE.

The following problems are founded upon the general principles of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, the fundamental operations of arithmetic, which have already been explained. 1. The parts of a number being given, to find the number. — Add the parts together (Art. 47). 2. The sum of two numbers and one of the numbers being given, to find the other number. From the sum subtract the given number (Art. 50). 3. The difference between two numbers and the larger number being given, to find the smaller. — From the larger number subtract the difference (Art. 52). 4. The difference between two numbers and the smaller number being given, to find the larger. · Add the smaller number and the difference together (Art. 51). 5. The sum and the difference of two numbers being given, to find the numbers. From the sum subtract the difference and divide the remainder by 2, for the smaller number; add the difference to the smaller number, for the larger (Art. 52). NOTE. — In like manner, when the sum and differences are given, may be found any number of required numbers. After subtracting the differences from the sum, if there are 3 required numbers, divide by 3 for the smaller number; if 4, divide by 4, and so on. 6. The product of two numbers, and one of the numbers being given, to find the other numbers. - Divide the product by the given number (Art. 62). 7. The product of three numbers, and two of the numbers being given, to find the other number. - Divide the given product by the product of the two given numbers (Art. 72). 8. The dividend and quotient being given, to find the di." visor. - Divide the dividend by the quotient (Art. 77). 9. The divisor and quotient being given, to find the dividend. - Multiply the divisor and quotient together (Art. 74). EXAMPLES. 1.
