Definitions and Illustrations. WHEN any whole thing or number is divided into any number of equal parts, the parts are called fractions of the thing or number. If an orange be divided into two equal parts, the parts are called halves. If it be divided into three equal parts, the parts are called thirds. If it be divided into four equal parts, the parts are called fourths. If it be divided into five equal parts, the parts are called fifths. If it be divided into six equal parts, the parts are called sixths. If it be divided into seven equal parts, the parts are called sevenths. If it be divided into eight equal parts, the parts are called eighths. If it be divided into nine equal parts, the parts are called ninths. If it be divided into ten equal parts, the parts are called tenths. If it be divided into eleven equal parts, the parts are called elevenths. If it be divided into twelve equal parts, the parts are called twelfths. The number of equal parts into which any whole thing or number is divided always indicates the name of the parts. Fractions are usually expressed by two numbers written one above the other, with a short line between them ; thus : sevenths, & eighths, še ninthis, yo tenths, 11 elevenths, i eweren. The number below the line expresses the number of equal parts into which the whole thing or number is supposed to be divided ; and it is called the denominator, because it indicates the name of the parts, as thirds, fourths, fifths, &c. The number above the line is called the numerator, because it shows the number of equal parts expressed by the fraction. two 3 three four 5 five one 2 8 eight LESSON I. 1.

Since 9 ninths are equal to a whole one, there must be 1 ninth as many whole ones as there are ninths. 6. How many whole ones are there in 54 ninths? In 64 ninths ? In 72 ninths? In 84 ninths? In 90 ninths? In 95 ninths ? In 99 ninths? In 10 rinths ? 7. In a unit, or 1, there are 10 tenths. How many tenths are there in 5? In 6%? In 8? In 916 ? In 10? In 11:0? In 12 ?
