Σελίδα 99 - Divide the first term of the dividend by the first term of the divisor, and write the result as the first term of the quotient. Multiply the whole divisor by the first term of the quotient, and subtract the product from the dividend.

Σελίδα 80 - In each of these cases the division is to be indicated by writing . the divisor under the dividend, in the form of a fraction.
Σελίδα 81 - ... arithmetic. It was shown in arithmetic, that a fraction properly expresses a quotient. Algebraic fractions are subject to precisely the same rules as fractions in arithmetic. Many of the operations are more easily performed on algebraic fractions. In these, as in arithmetic, it must be kept in mind, that the denominator shows into how many parts a unit is divided ; and the numerator shows how many of those parts are used ; or the denominator shows into how many parts the numerator is divided....
Σελίδα 171 - B set out from two towns, which were distant 247 miles, and travelled the direct road till they met. A went 9 miles a day ; and the number of days, at the end of which they met, was greater by 3 than the number of miles which B went in a day. How many miles did each go ? • . ,.l \[ 17.

Σελίδα 139 - ... 5th. Bring down the next two figures as before, to form a new dividend, and double the root already found, for a divisor, and proceed as before. The root will be doubled, if the right hand figure of the last divisor be doubled. If it happens that the divisor is not contained in the dividend when the right hand figure is rejected, a zero must be written in the root, and also at the right of the divisor ; and the next figures must be brought down, and then a new trial made. If it happens that the...
