Side 128 - ... sought. 3. Multiply the terms of the geometrical series together belonging to those indices, and make the product a dividend, 4. Raise the first term to a power whose index is one less than the number of the terms multiplied, and make the result a divisor. 5. Divide, and the quotient is the term sought. EXAMPLES. 4. If the first of a geometrical series be 4, and the ratio 3, what is the 7th term ? 0, 1, 2, 3, Indices.
Side 38 - Finally, multiplying the second and third terms together, divide the product by the first, and the quotient will be the answer in the same denomination as the third term.
Side 98 - CUBIC MEASURE 1728 cubic inches = 1 cubic foot 27 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard...
Side 44 - In like manner, if any one index be subtracted from another, the difference will be the index of that number which is equal to the quotient of the two terms to which those indices belong.
Side 127 - RULE.* 1. Write down a few of the leading terms of the series, and place their indices over them, beginning with a cypher.
Side 114 - Let the farthings in the given pence and farthings possess the second and third places ; observing to increase the second place or place of hundredths, by 6 if the shillings be odd ; and the third place by 1 "when the farthings exceed 12, and by 2 when they exceed 36.
Side 125 - RULE. Multiply the sum of the extremes by the number of terms, and half the product will be the sum of the terms. EXAMPLES FOR PRACTICE. 2. If the extremes be 5 and 605, and the number of terms 151, what is the sum of the series?
