Tax extension clerks compute what each property holder must pay for the several purposes for which taxes are exacted. To aid in doing this work extensive tables are usually provided by which the tax on any assessed value at any give rate may be found without arithmetical process,—by mere reference to the tables. Such tables cannot be presented within the limits of an ordinary arithmetic. In the tax extension required on page 292, the following substitute for these tables may be employed to advantage. This table shows the tax on any number of hundred dollars from 1 to 9. It is apparent that the tax on any number of thousands of dollars would be ten times as much as the amount shown in the table; on any number of tens of dollars, one tenth as much, etc. “R. & B." stands for Road and Bridge; “Lib.,” for Library.
