Page 199 - Multiply the divisor, thus augmented, by the last figure of the root, and subtract the product from the dividend, and to the remainder bring down the next period for a new dividend.
Page 207 - Find the first figure of the root by trial, and subtract its power from the" left hand period of the given number. 5. To the remainder bring down the first figure in the next period, and call it the dividend. 4.
