RULE OF TIIREE DIRECT. The Rule of 'Three Direct Teachris, by having three numbers given to find in fourtdı, which shall have the same proportions to the thiril, as tlic second has luthier first.

1. closerve that two of the viven numbers in your question are always of the same name, or kind; one of which must be the first wymer in stating, and the outer the thirol number : consequently, the first and third anma bers most always be of the same name, or kind: anel thie other number, i lindo is of the same kind with the alisier.

thing suylit, will always possess lie second or middle place. 2. The iniril term is a demand ; and may be known: 'sy

l these or t.e like worlds before it, viz.. What will : What cost? How many ? Flow für: llow long? ur, llum much : &c.
