17. Multiply 893254:25 by 999 by subtraction, and prove by adding complement. In a similar manner the process of multiplying by 49, 29, or any other two figures ending in 9, may be abridged by using 50, 30, &c., as multiplier, and at the same time subtracting the multiplicand once, or adding its complement. Thus, 18. Multiply 7236408 by 69; that is, by 70 with the addition at the same time of the complement of the multiplicand, and prove by multiplying by 69. 7236408 70 499312152=70—1 time by adding the complement of the multiplicand while performing the multiplication. 19. Multiply 1423746 by 49 [50 and complement], and prove by 49. 20. Multiply 653492 by 399, as above [by 400 and complement], and prove. 21. Multiply 28656 by 29, as above, and prove. 22.

Multiply 4588-24 by 499 by division and addition of complement separately, and prove. 25. Multiply 2346 by 8; that is, by supposing the multiplicand to be multiplied by 10, and adding double its complement. For example: 8.2346 18768 Suggestive Questions. If the multiplicand were multiplied by 10, what would be the right hand figure? If to that we add twice the complement of 6, what would it then be? What would the next figure of the product be if twice the complement of 4 were added to the 6? The next figure of the product + twice the complement of 3? and so on, dropping 2 for twice the complement of the rank next above the highest figure of the complement. 26. Multiply 45827 by 38 [by 40 and twice the complemont], and prove by dividing by 38. 27. Multiply 372-65 by 98 [100 and twice the complement], and prove by dividing by 98. 28. Multiply 2536 by 248 by division, adding two complements afterwards, and prove. 29. Multiply 3847 by 78 [80—2], and prove by division. 3. Multiplication partially or wholly by Addition. 30. Multiply 62305496 by 11 by addition, and prove. Suggestive Questions.—If a number has only been taken 10 times, when it ought to have been taken 11 times, how many times too few has it been taken? How shall the error be rectified ? Then 62305496 =10 times by position, makes 685360456=11 times. The intelligent pupil will readily perceive that the above depends on a similar principle to that shown in example 12, and that the second line is wholly superfluous, being merely inserted here to show the principle. Of course, in the following exercises, he will omit the superfluity. In fact, it would be preferable that he should even omit the first line also, and write the product by 11 simply by inspection of the book. 31.

Why is it that in dividing integers by 5, the number of decimal places cannot exceed one; in dividing by 25, two; by 125, three? 70. What is the greatest number of decimal places possible in dividing integers by 2? by 4? 8? 16 ? 32 ? CHAPTER III. THE SHORTENED PROCESSES OF INCREASE AND DECREASE APPLIED TO COMMON FRACTIONS AND DENOMINATE FRACTIONS. DEFINITIONS. THERE are three kinds of fractions : Decimal, Common, and Denominate Fractions. All these, as well as integers, have two names or values, namely, the primary, or simple, or absolute value; and the secondary value. The primary name originates alike in all. It is the same with that of the character or characters by which it is represented. The secondary name is derived as follows: 1. In integers and decimal fractions from their horizontal position ; that is, from their distance to the right or left of the place of units. (See Chap. I., p. 112, 1. 33). Thus, in the number 44'44, the primary name of each of the figures is the same, namely, four ; but their secondary names are different; that of the first being ty (or tens); of the second, units ; of the third, tenths ; of the fourth, hundredths. 2. In common fractions, the secondary name is written under the number of the fraction in figures. Thus, in , the 4 represents the primary, or simple, and the 5 the secondary name and value of the fraction, which, therefore, is called four fifths. The chief difference between decimal and common fractions is, that in the former, the integer can be divided only by some power of ten, and hence we can only have tenths, hundredths, &c.; whereas, in common fractions, any number whatever may be used as the divisor. Thus, we have not only for (four tenths), ito (four hundredths), but may use as divisor 5, 6, 18, 356, and so on without end, making , 4, 4s, 56, &c. From this definition it results, that a common fraction may be changed into an equivalent decimal fraction by performing the division |
