Side 230 - To express that the ratio of A to B is equal to the ratio of C to D, we write the quantities thus : A ; B ; : C : D; and read, A is to B as C to D.

Side 231 - Quantities are said to be in proportion by composition, when the sum of the antecedent and consequent is compared either with antecedent or consequent.

Side 155 - Obtain the exponent of each literal factor in the quotient by subtracting the exponent of each letter in the divisor from the exponent of the same letter in the dividend; Determine the sign of the result by the rule that like signs give plus, and unlike signs give minus.

Side 233 - AC and by clearing the equation of fractions we have BO=AD; that is, Of four proportional quantities, the product of the two extremes is equal to the product of the two means.

Side 175 - Since the square of a binomial is equal to the square of the first term, plus twice the product of the first term by the second, plus the square of the second...

Side 138 - 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 But if any of the products should be greater than the dividend, diminish the last figure of the root.

Side 214 - A merchant bought cloth for which he paid £33 15s., which he sold again at £2 8s. per piece, and gained by the bargain as much as one piece cost him : how many pieces did he buy ? Ans.

Side 35 - The square of the sum of two quantities is equal to the square of the first, plus twice the product of the first and second, plus the square of the second.

Side 214 - To find a number such that if you subtract it from 10, and multiply the remainder by the number itself, the product shall be 21. Ans. 7 or 3.

Side 230 - Of four proportional quantities, the first and third are called the antecedents, and the second and fourth the consequents ; and the last is said to be a fourth proportional to the other three taken in order...
