PROBLEMS IN SIMPLE INTEGRAL NUMBERS.

124. The four operations that have now been considered, viz., Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division, are all the operations that can be performed upon numbers, and hence they are called the Fundamental Rules.

125. In all cases, the numbers operated upon and the results obtained, sustain to each other the relation of a whole to its parts. Thus, I. In Addition, the numbers added are the parts, and the sum

or amount is the whole. II. In Subtraction, the subtrahend and remainder are the

parts, and the minuend is the whole. III. In Multiplication, the multiplicand denotes the value of one

part, the multiplier the number of parts, and the pro

duct the total value of the whole number of parts. IV. In Division, the dividend denotes the total value of the

whole number of parts, the divisor the value of one part, and the quotient the number of parts; or the divisor the number of parts, and the quotient the

value of one part. 126. Every example that can possibly occur in Arithmetic, and every business computation requiring an arithmetical operation, can be classed under one or more of the four Fundamental Rules, as follows:

ANALYSIS. If the difference of two unequal numbers be added to the less number, the sum will be equal to the greater; and if this sum be added to the greater number, the result will be twice the greater number

But this result is the sum of the two numbers plus their difference

Again, if the difference of two numbers be subtracted from the greater number, the remainder will be equal to the less number; and if this remainder be added to the less number, the result will be twice the less number. But this result is the sum of the two numbers minus their difference. Hence,

I. The sum of two numbers plus their difference is equal to twice the greater number.

II. The sum of two numbers minus their difference is equal to twice the less number.

PROPERTIES OF NUMBERS.

EXACT DIVISORS.

128. An Exact Divisor of a number is one that gives an integral number for a quotient. And since division is the reverse of multiplication, it follows that all the exact divisors of a number are factors of that number, and that all its factors are exact divisors.

Notes.-1. Every number is divisible by itself and unity; but the number itself and unity are not generally considered as factors, or exact divisors of the number.

2. An exact divisor of a number is sometimes called the measure of the number.

129 An Even Number is a number of which 2 is an exact divisor; as 2, 4, 6, or 8.

130. An Odd Number is a number of which 2 is not an exact divisor; as 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9.

131. A Perfect Number is one that is equal to the sum of all its factors plus 1; as 6: 3 + 2 + 1, or 28 14 +7+4+ 2 + 1.

NOTE - The only perfect numbers known are 6, 28, 496, 8128, 33550336, 8589869056, 137438691328, 2305843008139952128, 2417851639228158837784576, 9903520314282971830448816128.

132. An Imperfect Number is one that is not equal to the sum of all its factors plus 1, as 12, which is not equal to 6 + 4 +3+2+1.

133. An Abundant Number is one which is less than the sum of all its factors plus l; as 18, which is less than 9 + 6+ 3 + 2 + 1.

134. A Defective Number is one which is greater than the sum of all its factors plus 1 ; as 27, which is greater than 9+3+1.

135. To show the nature of exact division, and furnish tests of divisibility, observe that if we begin with any number, as 4, and take once 4, two times 4, three times 4, four times 4, and so on indefinitely, forming the series 4, 8, 12, 16, etc., we shall have
