Note.--It is asserted by an able critic, that the ancient method of saying, “2 and 5 are 75 or 3 and 6 are 9," &c. is not so elegant as to say, “ 2 and 5 is 7 or, 3 and 6 is 9," and the like in other expressions of plurality. The grammatical reasons given are, “ that the number 2, added to the number 3, is the number 5, or, the number 3, added to the number 6, is the number 9," &c.,

The Author has seen fit to express the numbers differently throughout the work, in order to have his mode of expression agree with that of Lancaster :-This note is inserted to give a hint to Teachers, and at the same time means that they may use either of the above methods, as their fancy may dictate.
