Side 164 - PROBLEM II. The first term, the last term, and the number of terms given, to find the common difference. RULE. — Divide the difference of the extremes by the number of terms less 1 , and the quotient will be the common diffcrenct.
Side 51 - When the numerator is less than the denominator, the value of the fraction is less than 1.
Side 124 - The rule for casting interest, when partial payments have been made, is to apply the payment, in the first place, to the discharge of the interest then due. If the payment exceeds the interest, the surplus goes towards discharging the principal, and the subsequent interest is to be computed on the balance of principal remaining due.

Side 145 - Extract the root of the numerator for a new numerator, and the root of the denominator, for a new denominator 2.
Side 124 - If the payment exceeds the interest, the surplus goes towards discharging the principal, and the subsequent interest is to be computed on the balance of principal remaining due. If the payment be less than the interest, the surplus of interest must not be taken to augment the principal, but interest continues on the former principal until the period when the payments taken together exceed the interest due, and then the surplus is to be applied towards discharging the principal, and interest is to...
