Page 20 - DIVISION is - the process by which we find how many times one number or part of a number is contained in, or may be subtracted from, another. The number to be divided is the dividend. The number to divide by, is the divisor. The number of times the dividend contains the divisor, is the quotient. The divisor and quotient may also be regarded as factors of the dividend. The number left, (if any,) after the operation, is the remainder.

Page 117 - ... nine integral cubes between 1 and 1000. All the other intermediate integers are imperfect cubes, and their roots can only be obtained approximately. All perfect cubes from 1 to 1000, evidently have but one integral figure in their cube root. All numbers between 1000 or 103, and 1000000 or 1003, will have two figures in their root. And generally, if we divide a cube into periods of three figures each, by placing a point over units, and one over every third figure from units, the number of points...
