The unit 1 foot is first supposed to be divided into 12 equal parts, called inches or primes, and marked'. Each of these parts is supposed to be again divi. ded into 12 equal parts, called seconds, and marked": Each second is divided in like manner, into 12 "equal parts called thirds, and marked "'. This division of the foot, gives l' inch or prime = of a foot 1" second is=ia of iz Fita of a foot. 1"" third is='s of te of i Fitzg of a foot. Duodecimals are added and subtracted like other denominate numbers, 12 of a lesser denomination making one of a greater, as in the following TABLE. 12" make 1" second 12 l' inch or prime 12 1 foot. many Ans. 15ft. 5. 2. In 250', how many feet and inches ? Ans. ift. 8 10". 3. In 4367'", how many feet? Ans. 2ft. 6' 3" 11". ។ EXAMPLES IN ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION. 1. What is the sum of 3ft. 6' 3" 2" and 2ft. 1' 10" 11" ? Ans. 5ft. 8 2" 1". 2. What is the sum of 8ft. 9' 7" and 6ft. 7' 3'' 4" ? Ans. 15ft. 4' 10" 4". 3. What is the difference between 9ft. 3 5" 6"" and 7ft. 3 6" 7'"'? , Ans. ift. 11' 10" 11"". 4. What is the difference between 40ft. 6' 6" and 29ft. 7"" ? Ans. 11ft. 6' 5" 5'". MULTIPLICATION OF DUODECIMALS. Ø 203. It has been shown Ø 84, that feet multiplied by feet gives square feet in the product. Ex. 1. Multiply 6ft. 6' 6" by 2ft. 7'. Set down the multiplier under ft. the multiplicand, so that feet shall 6 6 6" fall under feet, inches under in 2 7 ches, &c. It is generally most 13 1' convenient to begin with the high 3 9' 9" 6"" est denomination of the multiplier, 16 10' 9" 6" and first multiply the lower denominations of the multiplicand. The 6" of the multiplicand, are is of an inch, or Tft of a foot. Therefore when we multiply it by 2 feet, the product is 12", equal to 1 inch. Multiply. ing 6', or is of a foot, by 2 feet the product is 12, to which add 1 inch from the last product, making 13'. Set down l' under the column of inches and carry 1 foot to the product of the 6 by 2, making 13 feet. Then multiply by 7'. The product of 7' by 6"= 42'" : for 7=it of a foot, and 6"=tlt of a foot : 'hence 7' X 6"=11&t=14*5=42"=3" 6'". Then 5x9==42" and 3” to carry make 45"=3' 9": set down 9". Then I by 6=42' and 3' to carry make 15'=3ft. 9' which are set down in their proper places. 204. Hence we see 1st. That feet multiplied by feet gives square feet in the product. 2d. That feet multiplied by inches gives inches in the product. 3d. That inches multiplied by inches gives seconds, or twelfths of inches in the product. 4th. That inches multiplied by seconds gives thirds in the product. 2. Multiply 9ft. 4in. by 8ft. 3in. Beginning with the 8 feet, 9 4 77 0' 0" Ans. many solid feet in a stick of timber which is 25ft. 6in. long, 2ft. 7in. broad, and 3ft. 3 inches thick ? ft. 25 6' length 65 10' 6" 3 3' thickness gether. 197 7'6" 16 5' 7" 6" Ans. 214 1' 1" 6' 4. Multiply 9ft. 2in. by 9ft. 6in. Ans. 87ft. 1'. 5. Multiply 24ft. 10in. by 6ft. 8in. Ans. 165ft. 6' 8". 6. Multiply 70ft. Sin. by 12ft. 3in. Ans. 866ft. 8 3". 7. How many cords and cord feet in a pile of wood 24 feet long, 4 feet wide, and 3ft. 6in. high? Ans. 2 cords and 5 cord ft. Note. It must be recollected that 16 solid feet make one cord foot Ø 84.

A merchant mixes 8Zb. of tea worth 75cts. per pound, with 1616. worth $1,02 per pound : what is the value of the mixture per pound ? The manner of finding the price of this mixture is called Allegation Medial. Hence, ALLEGATION MEDIAL teaches the method of finding the price of a mixture when the simples of which it is nosed, and their prices, are known. he example above, the simples 8lb. and 1616., |
