Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1885 Excerpt: ...the highest term, or terms of the dividend by the divisor. 3. Express the result for the first term of the quotient at the right in long division, beneath in short division. 4. Multiply the divisor by this term. 5. Take the product thus obtained from the part of the dividend used. 6. Unite the next term of the dividend with the remainder for a new partial dividend; divide, multiply, and subtract as before; and so continue till all the terms of the dividend are used. 7. Express the division of the final remainder, should there be any, in the fractional form. (Or Change the remainder to tenths, hundredths, thousandths, etc., and continue the division as far as desirable.') Proof. Find the product of the quotient and divisor, and add to it the remainder, if there is one. The result ought to equal the dividend. 42. How many are 36247 H-189? 43. How many are 53004-=-398? 44. How many are 932480 287? 46. How many are 750010-=-677? If at any time the divisor is not contained in a partial dividend, write a zero for the next figure of the quotient, and unite with the partial dividend the next term of the given dividend. Contractions in Division. 110. Illustrative Example IX. Divide 12367 by 10; by 100; by 1000. If the decimal point be moved one place 12367-=-10 = 1236.7 to the left, each figure will express a num12367 H-100 = 123.67 ber 1 tenth as great as before (Art. 30); 12367 1000 = 12.367 therefore, 1 tenth of 12367 is 1236.7. For a similar reason, 1 hundredth of 12367 is 123.67, and 1 thousandth of 12367 is 12.367. Hence, when the divisor is 10, 100, 1000, etc., we may find the quotient by moving the decimal point of the dividend as many placet to the left as then are zeros in the divisor. 46. There are 100 cents in a dollar; how many dollars are there in 2742...Read Less
