5. Then square this last figure in the quotient, and add it to the product just mentioned, for the second part of the divisor; all these products added, form the true divisor.

6. Now multiply this true divisor by the last figure put in the quotient; subtract the product from the dividend as in division, bring down the next period of three figures; proceed as before.

For Decimals.-Annex ciphers to the decimal, if necessary, so that it shall consist of 3, 6, 9, &c., places; then put the first point over the place of thousandths, the second over the place of millionths, and so on over every third place to the right; and then extract the root as in whole numbers. Observe, 1. There will be as many places in the root as there are periods in the given number. 2. The same rule applies when the given number is composed of a whole number and a decimal. 3. If there be a remainder in a whole number, after all the periods have been brought down, you can annex periods of ciphers, considering them as decimals.

For Vulgar Fractions.-1. Reduce compound fractions to simple ones, mixed numbers to improper fractions, and then reduce the fraction to its lowest terms. 2. Then extract the cube root of the numerator and denominator separately, if they have exact roots ; but if either of them have not an exact root, reduce the fraction to a decimal, and extract the root as above. Proof.-Cube the root and add in the remainder.

RULE II.

1. Point off the given number into periods of three figures each; if whole numbers commencing at the right hand; but if decimals, at the left.

2. Find the greatest cube in the left hand period, and place che root to the right of the given number, and subtract the cube of the root from the left hand period, and to the remainder bring down the next period for a dividend.

3. Square the root, and multiply it by three for a defective divisor.

4. Reserve mentally the units and tens of the dividend, and try how often the defective divisor is contained in the remainder; place this result to the root, and the square of it to the right of the defective divisor, but if the square is less than ten, supply the ten's place by a cipher.

5. Complete the divisor by adding thereto the product of the last figure of the root, and the remaining figure or figures of the root, and that again by 30; then divide and subtract as in long division.

6. The defective divisors after the first may be easily found by adding to the last divisor the number that completed it, with twice the square of the last figure of the root.

7. Thé divisor is then completed according to the 4th and 5th paragraphs above.

ALLIGATION MEDIAL.

ALLIGATION is used when the quantities and prices of several things are given, to find the mean price of the mixture composed of those materials ; or the method of mixing two or more simples of different qualities, so that the composition may be of a mean or middle quality. There are two kinds, Alligation : ledial and Alligation Alternate.
