[THERE are three questions in each of the following problems; but the first two are merely leading questions to assist the learner in the solution of the third. To bright pupils they may be unnecessary, and of course should be omitted. With the more dull the section should be repeatedly reviewed, till the third question in each problem can be solved and explained without hesitation, and without the aid of the first and second questions.] 1. á of 24 how many? of 24 are 10 of what number? of 24 are 4 of how many times 5 ?
