Page 190 - But it is commonly necessary that this first proportion should pass through a number of transformations before it brings out distinctly the unknown quantity, or the proposition which we wish to demonstrate. It may undergo any change which will not affect the equality of the ratios ; or which will leave the product of the means equal to the product of the extremes.
Page 31 - MULTIPLYING BY A WHOLE NUMBER is TAKING THE MULTIPLICAND AS MANY TIMES, AS THERE ARE UNITS IN THE MULTIPLIER.
Page 188 - : b : : mx : y, For the product of the means is, in both cases, the same. And if na : b : : x : y, then a : b : : x :ny. 375. On the other hand, if the product of two quantities is equal to the product of two others, the four quantities...
