A SHORT RULE. NOTE. The value of 100 lbs. of any article will be just as many dollars as the article is cents a pound.

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 remains ; and is a concise way of performing several subtractions.

Four principai 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.

. 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

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 divisor by this quotient figure; place the product under that part of the dividend used; then snbtract 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.

Poor. Multiply the divisor and quotient together and add the remainder if there be any to the product ; if the work be right, the sum will be equal to the dividend.*

Another method which some make use of to prove division is as follows: viz. Add the remainder and all the pro

2. Do the same with the quotient and place it on the right it, 3. Multiply these two figures together, and add their proquect to the remainder, and reject the nines and place the extierss at top.
