DIVISION.

WRITTEN WORK.

377. ILLUSTRATIVE EXAMPLE. Divide 47° 18' 36" by 11.

Explanation. - Dividing 47° by 11, we

have 4° for a quotient, with a remainder of 11) 47° 18' 36"

3°. We write the 4° under the line, and 4° 18' 33" Ans. change the 3o remaining to minutes, ob

taining 180'. Adding 180' to the 18' in the dividend, we have 198'. Dividing 198' by 11, we have 18' for a quotient, etc.

378. Examples for the Slate. 79. A farmer brought 5 bu. 3 pk. of corn to mill. How much corn did the miller take as toll, if he took + part ?

80. If 65 A. 125 sq. rd. be divided into 50 house-lots, what is the size of each ?

81. How long will it take to travel 1 mile, at the rate of 75 miles in 10 h. 18 min. ?

82. Among how many men may 624 gal. 3 qt. be divided, that each man may receive 12 gal. 3 qt. ? NOTE. Change both numbers to quarts before dividing.

83. How many bins, each containing 5 bu. 3 pk., will be required to hold 885 bu. 2 pk. of potatoes?

84. If a man walks 3 m. 264 rd. in one hour, how long will it take him to walk 23 m. 273 rd.?

Perform such examples in exercises 213 to 215, page 171, as the teacher

LONGITUDE AND TIME.*

379. As the earth turns upon its axis once in 24 hours, it follows that the of 360°, or 15° of longitude, must pass under the sun in 1 hour, and of of 15°, or 15', must pass under the sun in 1 min. of time, and of of 15', or 15", must pass under the sun in 1 sec. of time. Hence the following

TABLE.
A difference of 15°

A difference of 1 hour

makes in longitude

in time. A difference of 15'

SA difference of 1 minute

makes in longitude

in time. A difference of 15"

A difference of 1 second

makes in longitude

in time. 380. From the table above we derive the following

} } }

Rule. To find the difference of longitude between any two places when the difference of time is known : Multiply the difference of time between the two places, expressed in hours, minutes, and seconds, by 15. The product will express the number of degrees, minutes, and seconds required.

NOTE. As the earth turns from west to east, midday occurs sooner in places east and later in places west of any given point. Hence the time shown by a clock is later in all places east, and earlier in all places west, of any given point than it is at that point.

381. Examples for the Slate. What is the difference in longitude between two places, the difference in their time being (85.) 4 h. 17 m.?

(87.) 6 h. 12 m. 10 s. ? (86.) 2 h. 9 m. ?

(88.) 1 h. 5 m. 25 s. ? In what longitude from Greenwich is a place whose time compared with that of Greenwich is

(89.) 3 hours earlier ? (91.) 1 hour 12 minutes later ? (90.) 5 minutes later ? (92.) 4 hours 8 minutes earlier ?

* See Appendix, page 308.

93. The time in St. Louis is 1 b. 5 min. 18 8. slower than in New York; what is the difference in longitude between these places, and what is the longitude of St. Louis, that of New York being 74° 0' 3" west ?

94. A and B sailed together from San Francisco. A kept his watch by San Francisco time, and B set his by the sun every day. After 10 days, A's watch was 4 hours 39 minutes faster than B’s : in what longitude were they then, the longitude of San Francisco being 122° 26' 15'' west ?

382. From Art. 379 we may also derive the following

Rule. To find the difference in time between any two places when the difference in longitude is known : Divide the difference in longitude, expressed in degrees, minutes, and seconds, by 15. The quotient will express the number of hours, minutes, and seconds required.

383. The names of a few important cities are given below, with the longitude of each from Greenwich.

[blocks in formation]

384. Using the longitudes given above, find the difference in time between

95. Albany and Boston. 97. Montreal and New Orleans. 96. London and New York. 98. Philadelphia and Chicago.

103. In Rome ? 100. In New Orleans ?

104. In Berlin ? 101. In Chicago ?

105. In Paris ? 102. In San Francisco ?

MENSURATION OF SURFACES AND SOLIDS.

385. Oral Exercises. a. How many square feet are there in the top of a table that is 7 feet long and 3 feet wide? (Art. 313.)

b. How many square yards are there in a concrete walk 16feet long and 4 feet wide ?

c. How do you find the area of any rectangle or square ?

386. From Art. 313, it follows that when the area and one dimension of a rectangle or a square are given, the other dimension is found by dividing the number of units of area by the number of units in the given dimension.

d. There are 15 square yards in a piece of carpeting 5 yards long; what is its width ?

e. What must be the length of a walk 21 feet wide to con. tain 17 square

feet?

f. How many cubic feet will a box contain that measures on the inside 7 feet in length, 3 feet in width, and 2 feet in height ? (Art. 320.)

g. How do you find the volume of any rectangular solid ?

387. From Art. 320, it follows that when the volume and two dimensions of a rectangular solid are given, the other dimension is found by dividing the number of units of volume by the product of the number of units in each of two given dimensions.

h. What must be the depth of a cistern 5 feet long and 4 feet wide to contain 80 cubic feet?

i. What must be the height of a room 6 yards long and 5 yards wide to contain 90 cubic yards ?

j. A box 4 inches square must be how deep to contain a quart dry measure ?
