Side 72 - Divide the greater number by the less, then the less number by the remainder ; thus continue to divide the last divisor by the last remainder, until there is no remainder. The last divisor will be the greatest common divisor. NOTE.

Side 78 - Multiply all the numerators together for a new numerator, and all the denominators together for a new denominator.

Side 111 - When a decimal number is to be divided by 10, 100, 1000, &c., remove the decimal point as many places to the left as there are ciphers in the divisor, and if there be not figures enough in the number, prefix ciphers.

Side 107 - To multiply a decimal by 10, 100, 1000, &c., remove the decimal point as many places to the right as there are ciphers in the multiplier ; and if there be not places enough in the number, annex ciphers.

Side 137 - Thirty days hath September, April, June, and November ; All the rest have thirty-one, Except the second month alone, Which has but twenty-eight, in fine, Till leap year gives it twenty-nine.

" 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 288 - Multiply the divisor, thus augmented, by the last figure of the root, and subtract the product from the dividend, and to the remainder bring down the next period for a new dividend.

Side 288 - When the number of figures is odd, it is evident that the left-hand, or first period, will consist of but one figure. II. Find the greatest square in the first period, and place its root at the right of the number, in the form of a quotient in division, also place it at the left of the number.

Side 131 - SQUARE MEASURE 144 square inches (sq. in.) = 1 square foot (sq. ft.) 9 square feet — 1 square yard (sq. yd.) 30^ square yards = 1 square rod (sq. rd.) 160 square rods = 1 acre (A.) 640 acres = 1 square mile (sq.
