...divisor, write down the quotient with a negative sign, and divide the fractional part by common rules. Rut **if the negative characteristic is not divisible by...the other part of the logarithm separately, and the** furnier quotient, taken negatively, will be the characteristic to the fractional part of the quotient.... | |
