Side 39 - ... and the quotient will be the next term of the root. Involve the whole of the root, thus found, to its proper power, which subtract from the given quantity, and divide the first term of the remainder by the same divisor as before ; and proceed in this manner till the whole is finished*.

Side 107 - It is required to divide the number 24 into two such parts, that their product may be equal to 35 times their difference. Ans. 10 and 14.

Side 107 - It is required to divide the number 60 into two such parts, that their product shall be to the sum of their squares in the ratio of 2 to 5.

Side 108 - What two numbers are those whose sum, multiplied by the greater, is equal to 77 ; and whose difference, multiplied by the less, is equal to 12 ? Ans.

Side 36 - Multiply the index of the quantity by the index of the power to which it is to be raised, and the result will be the power required.
