...to attend to multiplication by positive whole numbers. This, according to the definition (Art. 90) **is taking the multiplicand as many times, as there are units in the multiplier.** Suppose a is to be multiplied by 6, and that b stands for 3. There are, then, three units in the multiplier... | |
