DIVISION OF WHOLE NUMBERS. SIMPLE DIVISION teaches to find how many times one whole number is contained in another ; and also what remains; and is a concise way of performing several sub tractions.

Four principal parts are to be noticed in Division : 1. The Dividend, or number given to be divideil. 2. The Divisor, or number given to divide hy.

3. The Quotient, or answer to the question, which shows how many times the divisor is contained in the dividend.

4. The Remainder, which is always less than the divisor and of the same name with the Dividend.

Rule.-First, seek how many times the divisor is contained in as many of the left hand figures of the dividend as are just necessary ; (that is, find the greatest figure that the divisor can be multiplied by, so as to produce a product that shall vot exceed ihe part of ihe dividend used ;) when found, place the figure in the quotient ; multiply the divisor by this quotient figure ; place the product under that part of the dividend used ; then subtract it therefrom, and bring down the next figure of the dividend to the right hand of the remainder; after which, you must seek, multiply and subtract, till you have brought down every figure of the dividend.

Proof. Multiply the divisor and quotient together, and add the reinainder, if there be any, to the product; if the work be right, tho sun will be equal to the dividend.*

* Another method which some make use of to prove division is as fol. lors : viz. Add the remainder and all the products of the several quotient figures multiplied by the divisor togeiher, according to the order in which they stand in the work ; and this sum, when the work is right, will be equal to the dividend.

A third method of proof by excess of nines is as follows, viz. 1. Cast the ñines out of the divisor, and place the excess on the left hand. 2. Do the same with the quotient, and place it on the right hand.

3. Multiply these two figures together, and add their product to the remainder, and reject the nines, and place the excess at top. 4. Cast the nines out of the dividend, and place the excess at bottom, Note. If the sum is right, the top and bottom Ngures wilt be alike.
