MULTIPLICATION of Compound Numbers is the process of taking a compound number any proposed number of times. Ex. 1. What will 6 bales of cloth cost, at 7£. 12s. 7d. per bale ? Ans. 45£. 15s. 6d. Having written the multiplier under the lowest denomination of the multiMultiplicand 7 12 7 plicand, we multiply_thus: 7d. X 6 Multiplier 6 42d. 3s. 6d. We write the 6d. Product 4 5 1 5 6 under the number multiplied, and re serve the 3s. to be added to the product of the shillings. Then, 12s. X 6 = 728., and 3s. (carried) 75s. 3£. 15s. We write the 15s. under the column of shillings, and reserve the 3£. to be added to the product of the pounds. Again, 7£. X 6 42£., and 3£. (carried) = 45£. This, placed under the column of pounds, gives 45£. 15s. 6d. RULE. Multiply each denomination of the compound number as in multiplication of simple numbers, and carry as in addition of compound numbers. Proof. — Write down by themselves the several products obtained by multiplying each denomination of the multiplicand by the multiplier, and these partial products added together will equal the entire product, if the work be right. (Art. 60.) NOTE. – Going a second time carefully over the work is a good way of testing its accuracy. On learning Division of Compound Numbers, the pupil will find that rule a better inethod of proving multiplication of compound aumbers. EXAMPLES. / 2. Multiply 1£. 8s. 7d. 2far. by 7. Ans. 10£.

T. cwt. qr. 1b. 148. When the multiplier is a composite number, and none of its factors exceed 12. Ex. 1. What will 35 loads of coal weigh, if each load weighs 2T. lcwt. 2qr. 6lb. ? We find the num ber 35 equal to the 2 1 2 6 weight of 1 load. product of 7 and 5; 7 we therefore multiply 14 10 3 17 = weight of 7 loads. the weight of i load by 7, and then that 5 product by 5; and the 7 2 14 2 10= weight of 35 loads. last product is the an Hence, when the multiplier is a composite number, Multiply by its factors in succession. swer. EXAMPLES. 2. Bought 90 hogsheads of sugar, each weighing 12cwt. 2qr. 11lb. ; what was the weight of the whole ? 3. What cost 18 sheep at 5s. 9 d. apiece ? 6. If 1 share in a certain stock be valued at 13£. 8s. 9fd., what is the value of 96 shares ? 7. If 1 spoon weighs 3oz. 5pwt. 15gr., what is the weight of 120 spoons ? 8. If a man travel 24m. 7fur. 4rd. in 1 day, how far will he go in 1 month ? 9. If the earth revolve 0° 15' per minute, how far does it revolve per hour? 10. Multiply 39A. 3R. 17p. 30yd. 8ft. 100in. by 32. 11. If a man be 2d. 5h. 17m. 19sec. in walking 1 degree, how long would it take him to walk round the earth, allowing 3657 days to a year? 149. 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. 11d. a ton ? |
