SIMPLE MULTIPLICATION. Multiplication teaches to find what a number amounts to when repeated a given number of times.

The number to be multiplied is called the multiplicand. The number to multiply by is called the multiplier.

The number produced by multiplying is called the product.

Note.-The multiplier and multiplicand are also called factors.

The scholar should commit the following table to memory before he proceeds further.

When the multiplier does not exceed 12, work by

RULE I.

Set the multiplier under the units place of the multiplicand. Then, beginning with the units, multiply each figure of the multiplicand, in succession, disposing of their several products as the amounts of the columns

:

are disposed of in addition. Thus: if the product of the units figure do not exceed 9, set down that product: but if it exceed 9, set down its right hand figure, and ada its left hand figure or figures to the product of the tens, &c.

PROOF.

Multiply by double the multiplier, and the product will be double the former product.

Multiply by each figure of the multiplier separately, first by the one at the right hand, then by the next, and so on, placing their respective products one under ano

ther, with the right hand figure of each product directly under that figure of the multiplier by which it is produced. Add these products together and their amount will be the product required.

Note-When cyphers occur at the right hand of either or both of the factors, omit them in the operation, and annex them to the product.

DIVISION.
By division we ascertain how often one number is
contained in another.

The number to be divided is called the dividend.
The number to divide by is called the divisor.

The number of times the dividend contains the divisor is called the quotient.

If, on dividing a number, there be any overplus, it is called the remainder.

The dividual is a partial dividend, or so many of the dividend figures as are taken to be divided at one time, and which produce one quotient figure. When the divisor does not exceed 12 work by

RULE I. Place the divisor on the left of the dividend, and see how often it is contained in the first left hand figure or figures thereof.* If it be contained an exact number of times, set down that number; and then see how often it is contained in the next figure or figures. But if it be contained any number of times with a remainder, set down the number of times, and conceive the remainder to be prefixed to the next figure of the dividend ; then see how often the divisor is contained in these, and proceed as before: or if these will not contain the divisor, set down a cypher, and take the next figure with them ; and if they will not still contain the divisor, set down a cypher again, and take the next figure with them; set down the number of times they contain the divisor, and proceed as before.

PROOF.

Multiply the quotient by the divisor, and to their product add the remainder (if any) and the result will be equal to the dividend.

The multiplication table shews how often any number, not ex. ceeding 12, is contained in any other number not exceeding 144: as that 4 is contained in 12 three times, because 3 times 4 are 12; 10 is contained in 115 eleven times with 5 over, because 11 times 10 are 110, which, with 5, makes 115.
