Page 53 - In the multiplication of whole numbers, place the multiplier under the multiplicand, and multiply each term of the multiplicand by each term of the multiplier, writing the right-hand figure of each product obtained under the term of the multiplier which produces it.
Page 43 - If both terms of a fraction be multiplied by the same number, the value of the fraction will remain unchanged.
Page 61 - Divide the first term of the dividend by the first term of the divisor, and write the result as the first term of the quotient. Multiply the whole divisor by the first term of the quotient, and subtract the product from the dividend.
Page 45 - The algebraic sum of the fractions having a common denominator is a fraction whose numerator is the algebraic sum of the numerators of the given fractions and whose denominator is the common denominator.

Page 35 - The sum of two or more numbers is the same in whatever order they are added. Thus, 3 + 2 + 5 = 10, or 5 + 3 + 2 = 10.
Page 15 - LOGARITHMS The logarithm of a number is the power to which a given base must be raised to produce the number. For example, the logarithm of 25 to the base 5 is 2, since 5 must be raised to the second power to produce the number 25.
