For 100 lb. at 1 cent per lb.=100 cents=1 dollar. 100 lb. of beef at 4 cents a lb, comes to 400 cents=4 dollars, &c. DIVISION OF WHOLE NUMBERS. SIMPLE DIVISION teaches to find how many times one whole number is contained in another; and also what rernains; and is a concise way of performing several subtractions. Four principal parts are to be noticed in Division : 1. The Dividend, or number given to be divided. 2. The Divisor, or number given to divide by. 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 not exceed the part of the dividend used) when found, place the figure in the quotient; multiply the di. visor 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. Proov. Multiply the divisor and quotient together and add the remainder if there be any to the producti il the work be right, the sum will be equal to the diviceud.* * Another method which some make use of to prove diri sion is as follows : viz. Add the remainder and all the products of the several quotient figures multiplied by the divisas EXAMPLES 1. How many times is 4 2. Divide $656 dollars contained in 9391 ? equally among 8 men. Divisor, Div.Quotient.

A third method of proof by excess of nines is as follows, viz. 1. Cast the nines out of the divisor and place the excods 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 wines and place the use cess at top. 4. Cast'the nines out of the dividend and place the excess at bottom. NOTE. N the gum is right, dia top and bottom liggies will le alice |
