Side 82 - Where the numerator is the difference of the products of the opposite coefficients in the order in which y is not found, and the denominator is the difference of the products of the opposite coefficients taken from the orders that involve the two unknown quantities. Coefficients are of the same order which either affect no unknown quantity, as c anil ci ; or the same unknown quantity in the different equations, as a and o'.
Side 24 - Fractions ; and the dividend or quantity placed above the line is called the Numerator of the fraction, and the divifor or quantity placed under the line is called the Denominator...
