A SHORT RULE. Note. The value of 100 lbs. of any article will be just as many dollars as the article is cents a pound.

For 100 lb. at 1 cent per lb.=100 cents=1 dollar.

100 lb. of beef at 4 cents a lb. comes to 400 cents=4 dollars, &c.

DIVISION OF WHOLE NUMBERS. SIMPLE

IMPLE DIVISION teaches to find how many times ona whole number is contained in another; and also what remains ; and is a concise way of performing several subtractions.

Four principal parts are to be noticed in Division : 1. The Dividend, or number given to be divided. 2. The Divisor, or nun,ber given to divide by.

3. The Quotient, or answer to the question, which shows how many times the divisor is contained in the dividend.

4. The Remainder, which is always less than the divisòr, and of the same naine with the Dividend.

RULE. First, seek how many times the divisor is contained in as many of the left hand figures of the dividend as are just necessary, (that is, find the greatest figure that the divisor can be multiplied by, so as to produce a product that shall not exceed the part of the dividend used) when found, place the figure in the quotient ; multiply the divisor by this quotient figure ; place the product under that part of the dividend used ; then subtract it therefrom, and bring down the next figure of the dividend to the right hand of the remainder, after which, you must seek, multiply and subtract, till you have brought down every figure of the dividend.

Proof. Multiply the divisor and quotient together and add the remainder if there be any to the product ; if the work be right, the sum will be equal to the dividend.*

* Another method which some make use of to prove division is as follovag : viz. Add the remainder and all the products of the several quotient figures multiplied by the divisor togethor, according to the

order in wbich they stand in the works , and this sum, when the work is night will be equal to the dividend A third method of proof by excess of aines is as follows, viz.

1. Cast the nines.out of the divisor and place the excess on the left hand.

2. Do the same with the quotient and place it on the right land. 3. Multiply these two figures ogether, and add their product

the remainder, and reject the nines, and place the excess at bp.

CASE II. When there are cyphers at the right hand of the divisor ; cut off the cyphers in the divisor, and the same number of figures from the riglit hand of the dividend, then divide the remaining ones as usual, and to the remainder (if any) annex those figures cut off from the dividend, and you will have the true remainder.

CASE III. Short Division is when the Divisor does not exceed 12.

RULE. Consider how many times the divisor is contained in the first figure or figures of the dividend, put the result under, and carry as many tens to the next figure as there are ones over.

Divide every figure in the same manner till the whole is inished.

Contractions in Division. When the divisor is such a number, that any two figures in the Table, being multiplied together will produce it, divide the given dividend by one of those tigures ; the quotient thence arising by the other; and the last quot ent will be the answer.

Note. The total remainúer is found by multiplying the last remainder by the first divisor, and adding in the first remainder.
