plier is hundreds, the right-hand figure must be placed in the column of hundreds; and, in general, whatever the order of the multiplier is, the right-hand figure must be in the column of that order. COR. 4.—If there be one or more zeros in the multiplier, the product of the next figure will be put back one figure for every zero.

COR. 2.—When the multiplier also has several figures, the process of each successive multiplier is the same, except that the right-hand figure of each product must be placed in the order of its multiplier. (Cor. 3, Prob. 2, page 22.) REM.-A multiplicand may be either an abstract or a concrete number, but a multiplier cannot be concrete, as it cannot refer to things, but merely indicates how many times the multiplicand is to be taken ; but the product will be of the same name as the mul. tiplicand; for twice $5 are $10; 3 times 20 yards of cloth are 60 yards of cloth; twice 4 are 8; 3 times 4 are 12, etc. In computation, it is best to regard all numbers as abstract.

REM. 1.-In multiplication, two factors are given to find their product. REM. 2.-In division, two numbers also are given to find the third; the one .called the dividend corresponds to the product in multiplication, the other given number is called the divisor, and the required number is called the quotient; the two latter correspond to the factors in multiplication. DIVISION. PROBLEMS. When the product of two numbers is 4, and one of the numbers is 2, the other number is also 2; for 2 x 2 =4. and 4 divided by 2, or 4 divided into 2 equal parts, each part is 2, that is, the quotient is 2. 1. 9:3 = 3. ; 4. 16:4= 4. 2. 12:2= 6. 5. 15:3= 5. 3. 12 = 3 6. 15 : 5 = 3. = 4. COR. 1.-—The product of the divisor and quotient equals the dividend. COR. 2.—The divisor and quotient may be alternated. COR. 3.—Division is the reverse of multiplication and addition, and is similar to subtraction ; for, it is separating a number into equal parts, which is the same as subtracting the same number from a larger one; that is, subtracting the divisor from the dividend and then from the remainder, repeating this process until there is no remainder, or until the remainder is less than the divisor. 6 is subtracted 4 times, hence it is contained four times. 24 + 6 = 4.
