NOTE. Both multiplier and multiplicand aia in general called factors, or terms. CASE I. RULE. Multipıy each figure in the multiplicand by the mul. tiplier ; carry one for every ten, (as in addition of whole numbers) and you will have the product or answer PROOF.* Thus, 365 Multiplicant 3 Multiplier. EXAMPLES. CASE II. RULE. The multiplier being placed under the multiplicand units under units, tens under tens, &c. multiply by each significant figure in the multiplier separately, placing the first figure in each product exactly under its multiplier; * Multiplication may also be proved by casting out the 9's in the two factors, and setting down the remainders; then multiplying the two remainders together ; is the excess of 9's in their product is equal to the excess of I's in the total product, the work is supposed to be right, then add the several products together in the same order as they stand, and their sum will be the total product. EXAMPLES What number is equal to 47 times 365 ? Multiplicand 3 6 5 4 7 7913576 2537682 4280822 Product, 8253 25203 2193 9876 826 4025 4072 9405 14. Multiply 760483 by 9152. Ans. 6959940416 16.

When tnere are cyphers on the right hand of either or both of the factors, neglect those cyphers ; then place the significant figures under one another, and multiply by them only, and to the right hand of the product, place as many cyphers as were omitted in both the factors. 7065000 X 8700=61465500000 749643000 x 695000=521001885000.000 360000 x 1200000=432000000000 CASE IV. When the multiplier is a composite number, that is, when it is produced by multiplying any two numbers in the table together ; multiply first by one of those figures and that product by the other; and the last product will be the total requireil. CASE V. To multiply by 10, 100, 1000, &c. annex to the mul. tiplicand all the cyphers in the multiplier, and it will · make the product required. EXAMPLES. 1. Multipls 365 by 10. Ans. 3650, 2. Multiply 4657 by 100. Ans. 465700. 3 Multiply 5224 by 1000. Ans. 5224000. 4. Multiply 26460 by 10000. Ans. 264600000. IXAMPLES FOR EXERCISE. 1. Multiply 1203450 by 9004. Airs. 10835863800. 2.
