If the Divisor be not an Aliquor part of the Dividend, the Quotient may; in some Cases, be continued to an infinite Series. But if, after you have plac'd as many Terms in the Quotient as you think proper, you have a mind to have the exact Quotient, place the last Remainder as a Numerator over your Divisor, which Fraction annex to the before found Quotient, with its proper Sign + or

Sect. 1. To reduce Frations having different Denos
minatozs, to fragions of the same Value, that fhall have a common Denominatoz.
Hule. Multiply, all the Denominators continually by each other,
(i.e. Multiply the first Denominator by the second, and thar Product by the third, and so on) and reserve their Product for a new and common Denominator ; then Multiply any of the Numerators by all the Denominators bur its own, continually, and the last Product put for a Numerator over the said common Denominator ; fo this Fraction is equal to that, whole Numeratorycy Multiplied into all obe Denominators, but its own continually. Do fo with the rest of the Numerators, and you'll have your desire,
Examples. 1. Let it be required to bring and

Lemma to Se&t. 3. How to find the greatest common Divisoz (or common
Measure) of cwo given whole Quantities.
Hule. Divide the Greater given Quantity by the Less, and if any thing remains, Divide your Divisor thereby, and if any thing yet remains, Divide your last Divisor thereby; and thus proceed 'till norhing remains (as in Vulgar Fractions), if the first Term of each Remainder be a Sub-Multiple of the first Term of the next foregoing Divisor: But here Note, that every Remainder whose firft Term is not a Sub-Multiple of the first Term of the next foregoing Divisor, must be Divided by such of its Sub-Multiples as is Prime to that Divisor, and will give the first Term of the Quotient' a Sub-Multiple of the ficft Term of that Divisor: by which Quotient thar Divisor must be Divided, and if there be a Remainder, the faid Quotient will be your next Dividend to be Divided by this Remainder, or &c. And the last Divisor is the greatest common one required.
Suppose the Greater of the two given * Note, this Divifion Quantities to be=b, and the Less=0; is not necesary nor pro
