CULTIPLICATION teaches how. by two Numbers given to find a third, which shall contrin either of the Numbers given so many times, as the other contains I or unity: Or Multiplication may be considered as a manifold addition, or the repeating of a given Number as often as required. 61. Of the two Numbers given in Multiplication, one (which you will) is called the Multiplicand, and the other the Multiplier, or both are called Factors. 62. The Number fought, or arising by the Multiplication of the two Numbers given, is called the Product, the Fact, or the Rectangle : So if 5 be given to be multiplied by 3, or 3 by 5, the Product is 15 ; that is, 3 times 50 or 5 times 3 15; and here 5 may be called the Multiplicand, and 3 the Multiplier, or 3 may be called the Multiplicand, and 5 the Multiplier; and as 3 (one of the two numbers given) contains I or unity thrice, lo 15 the Product contains 5 (the other given number) thrice ; likewise as 5 (one of the given numbers) contains unity 5 times, fo 15 (the Product) contains 3 (the other given Number) 5 times : This fame Product may be found by Addition two ways, viz. either by writing down the number 5, . three three times; or the number 3, five times; and adding them together, as below. 5 a lavin wwwww 15 63. Multiplication is either fingle or compound. 64. Single Multiplication is, when the Multiplicand and Multiplier confift each of them of one figure only, as in the laft example. In like manner if you multiply 9 by 5, the product is 45; this is likewise single Multiplication : Now the several Varieties of single Multiplication are well expressed in the fallowing Table, usually called Pythagoras's Table. The truth of which may be proved by Addition, as above. The TABLE of MULTIPLICATION, 11_2_3_4_51_6_2819 9|18|27|36|45|5416317281 The use of the Table is this: Having one figure given to be multiplied by another, to know the product of them, find the Multiplicand in the top of the Table, and the Multiplier in the first column thereof towards the left-hand; then the product will be found on the same line with the latter, and under the former. So 9 being given to be multiplied by 5, I find 9 in the top of the Table, and 5 in the first column towards the left-hand; then carrying my eye from 5 in a right line equidistant to the upper side or top line of the Table, until I come to that square which is directly under 9, I find there 45, which is the product required. The particular varieties of this Table ought to be learned by heart, (that is, a man must be able to give the product of any single Multiplication, without the least pause or stay) before he can readily work compound Multiplication, will be an even number. be an odd number. 3. The product of any two numbers can have; at most, but as many places of figures as are in both Factors; and, at least; but one place fewer. Examp. 9+9=81, and iti=I. 65. Compound Multiplication, is when the Multiplier and Multiplicand, either one or both, consist of more figures than one. 200 60 : 66. In Compound Multiplication, when the numbers given 134 30 multiplied by 2 produces And 4 multiplied by 2 produces 8 Therefore 134 multiplied by 2 produces 268 For since the parts 100, 30, and 4, added together, make the whole 134; therefore the products of each of those parts, being added together, will be the product of the whole. 68. When the Multiplier consists of more figures 1232 than one, as many figures as it has, so many several 23 products muft be set down under the line, which at 3696 fast being added into one fum, will give you the total 2464 product of all. So 1232 being given to be multiplied by 23, the operation will stand thus ; 1232 being 28336 multiplied by 3 (according to the last rule) the product is 3696. Again, 1232 being multiplied by 2, 1321 123 the product is 2464, which several products after they are placed in their due order, (that is, the first 3963 figure arifing in every product under its respective 2642 multiplying figure) and added together, produce 1321 28336, the product required : In like manner 1321 162483 being given to be multiplied by 123, the pro dud duct is 162483, and the operation will appear as in the margin. 69. The product of 1232 by 23, is equal to the product of 1232 by 20 and the product of 1232 by 3, added together. See Examp. 1. Art. 68. But 1232 multiplied by 20 produces 24640 And 1232 multiplied by 3 produces 3696 Therefore 1232 multiplied by 23 produces 28336 70. When the product of any of the particular figures exceeds ten, place the excess under the line, as before, and for every ten that it so exceeds, keep one in mind to be added to the next rank; as was taught in Addition. Example, 3084 being given to be multiplied by 3084 36, the work will stand thus ; 6 times 4. being 24, 36 fet 4 under the line, and reserve 2 in mind for the two tens; then fay 6 times 8 is 48, to which add 18504 2 kept in mind, the whole is 50; therefore set down 9252 o in the next rank under the line (o because there is no excess of 50 above 5 tens) and keep 5 in mind I11024 for the 5 tens ; again, fay 6 times nothing is nothing, to which adding 5 that was kept in mind, the whole will be but 5, which set down under the line in the next rank; again, 6 times 3 is 18, which (in regard 3 is the last figure of the Multiplicand) set wholly down; fo that the particular product arifing from the multiplying by the figure 6 is 18504: In like manner proceeding with the multiplying figure 3, the particular product arising will be 9252. Lastly, these several products being placed in due order, and added to 5073 gether (after the manner of the last Article will give 111024, which is the total product arising from 30438 the Multiplication of 3084 by 36, and the opera 25365 tion will stand as in the margin. After the same 10146 manner, if 5073 be given to be multiplied by 256, the product will be found to be 1298688, and 1298688 the operation will stand as you see in the example. 71. When the two numbers given to be multiplied, do, one or both of them, end with a cypher or cyphers towards the right-hand, multiply the significant figures in both numbers, one by the other, neglecting such cyphers; and when the Multiplication of the fignificant figures is finished, annex, on the right-hand of the number produced by the Multiplication, the cypher or cyphers, with which one or both of the numbers first given did end, fo will the whole give you the true product demanded. Example, 43100 being given to be multiplied by 15000, the product will be found 646500000 ; for, omitting the 256 |
