Σελίδα 144 - Multiply the divisor, thus augmented, by the last figure of the root, and subtract the product from the dividend, and to the remainder bring down the next period for a new dividend.
Σελίδα 96 - To reduce a compound fraction to an equivalent simple one. RULE. — Multiply all the numerators together for a numerator, and all the denominators together for the denominator, and they will form the simple fraction sought.
Σελίδα 96 - To reduce a whole number to an equivalent fraction, having a given denominator. RULE. Multiply the whole number by the given denominator, and place the product over the said denominator, and it will form the fraction required.
