DENOMINATE NUMBERS

1. Write from memory the following tables :

Liquid Measures, Dry Measures, Avoirdupois Weight, Time Measures, and Measures of Length or Distance. 2. 1 yr. =

da.

hr.

mo. =

=

min. =

sec.

rd. =

ft.

lb.

OZ.

3. 1 mi.

yd.

in. 4. 1 T.

cwt. = 5. 1 bu.

pk. qt. 6. 1 gal.

qt. pt. The standard or principal units of measure are as follows: Liquid - gallon.

Length or distance — yard. Dry — bushel.

Avoirdupois — pound (16 oz.).

Time — day All other measures are determined from the above unit measures. Thus, the ton is 2000 times 1 pound (16 oz.). The hour is of the day, the period of one revolution of the earth on its axis.

A denominate number is a concrete number whose unit is a measure established by custom or law; as, 10 feet or 5 pounds, in which 1 foot and 1 pound are the units of measure.

A simple denominate number is a number of one denomination; as, 12 rods, 2 ounces, 5 days, etc.

A compound denominate number is composed of two or more concrete numbers that express one quantity; as, 6 yards, 2 feet, and 4 inches. Here yards, feet, and inches are used to express but one quantity, length.

1. Change 3 gal. 3 qt. 1 pt. to pints. gal. qt. pt. 3 3 1

Observe that 4 qt. is really the multi4

plicand and 3 the multiplier in finding the 12

first product; and that 2 pt. is really the +3

multiplicand and 15 the multiplier in finding 15, number of quarts.

the second product. In considering the num

bers abstractly, however, either factor may 2

be regarded as the multiplicand and the 30

arrangement as indicated saves time. +1 31, number of pints.

2. Change .875 gallon to pints. .875 4

Since there are 4 qt. in a gallon, in .875 of

a gallon there are .875 of 4 qt., or 3.5 qt. 3.500, number of qt.

Since there are 2 pt. in 1 qt., in .5 of a quart 2

there is 1 pt. The answer is 3 qt. 1 pt. 1.00, number of pt.

Change : 3. 15 lb. 8 oz. to ounces.

10. .75 yd. to inches. 4. 96 ft. 5 in. to inches.

11. 44 T. to pounds. 5. 5.5 bu. to quarts.

12.7 min. to seconds. 6. 3.5 pk. to pints.

13. 6.5 L. T. to pounds. 7. 18 cwt. 25 lb. to pounds. 14. 63.5 gal. to pints. 8. 23 hr. 16 min. to minutes. 15. bu. to quarts. 9. 8.3 mi. to yards.

16. 108 bu. to pecks. 17. Change 266 quarts to bushels. 8)266

There are 1 as many pecks as quarts, 4)33 no. of pk. + 2 qt. that is, 33 pk. + 2 qt.

There are as 8 no. of bu. +1 pk. many bushels as pecks, that is, 8 bu. +

1 pk. Hence, 266 qt. 8 bu. 1 pk. 2 qt.

= 8 bu. 1 pk. 2 qt.

Change to higher denominations: 18. 342 inches. 23. 347 cwt.

28. 43920 in. 19. 6625 yards. 24. 6095 pounds. 29. 6875 sec. 20. 5281 feet. 25. 16857 rods.

30. 56.5 pk. 21. 2043 seconds. 26. 11097 qt. (Dry). 31. 684.5 rd. 22. 1033 ounces Av. 27. 952 pt. (Liquid). 32. 9643 min.

2. 3 ft. 2 in. is what fractional part of a rod ?

3 ft. 2 in. = 38 in.

1 rod = 198 in. 3 ft. 2 in.

or rd. Find the fractional part : 3. 2 hr. is of 1 day. 6. 11 pt. is of 3 qt. 4. 71 ft. is of 1 rod. 7. 21 in. is of 10 ft. 5. 31 qt. is of 1 gallon. 8. 1] qt. is of 2 gal.
