Page 46 - Now .} of f- is a compound fraction, whose value is found by multiplying the numerators together for a new numerator, and the denominators for a new denominator.
Page 228 - There are three numbers in geometrical progression ; the sum of the first and second of which is 9, and the sum of the first and third is 15.
Page 36 - Multiplying or dividing both the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same number does not change the value of the fraction.
Page 248 - The logarithm of a product is equal to the sum of the logarithms of its factors.
Page 58 - We call this new species of numbers, irrational numbers ; they occur whenever we endeavour to find the square root of a number which is not a square. Thus, 2 not being a perfect square, the square root of 2, or the number which, multiplied by itself, would produce 2, is an irrational quantity. These numbers are also called surd quantities, or incommensurables.
