...Algebra, Sec. IV. Maclau jin. Saunderaon, Lacroix, Ludlam. 90. Multiplying bi/ a whole number is taking **the multiplicand as many times, as there are units in the multiplier.*** Multiplying by 1, is taking the multiplicand once, as a. Multiplying by 2, is taking the multiplicand... | |

...idea which we have given of multiplication, we see that we could perform this operation by writing **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** and afterward performing the addition. For instance, to multiply 7 by 3, we could write 7 + 7 + 7,... | |

...answer by adding ; but when the multiplier is a large number, it would be very tedious to set down **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** and be obliged to add them up. This shows the great utility of multiplication. 8. What is the price... | |

...to the left. SUPPLEMENT TO MULTIPLICATION. Multiplying by a mixed number, as 6J, 5J, &c. is taking **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier** ; and likewise taking a part of the multiplicand as many times as there are like portions of a unit... | |

...how many times the multiplicand is to be repeated, is called the multiplier. The number arising from **repeating the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** is called the product. § -29. The multiplicand and multiplier are factors, or producers, of the product.... | |
