COMPILED UXDER THE DIRECTIOX
STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION.
sacramento, california.
Printed at the State Printing Office.
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1887, hy the
STATE OF CALIFORNIA,
In the Office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington.
PREFACE.
The State Board of Education expect to make no revolution in
teaching the old subject of Arithmetic, by the issuance of a new
book. They feel, however, that arithmetics have been too much
given to talking and not enough to doing — that a student seldom
or never masters the thought in a long and minute explanation.
He cannot understand it before working the examples, and does
not need it afterward. Hence, the explanations in the present
volume have been made brief, and may be enlarged by the teacher
as the occasion demands.
Let no one despise the book on account of its small size, but work
a class carefully through it, making it familiar by frequent reviews,
and observe the effect. We respectfully invite the candid criticism
of those who have done this, that the defects of the present volume
may be remedied in the near future.

NOTATION AND NUMERATION.
A single, whole thing is called a unit; as, o?ie, one apple,
one pencil.
Several things taken together as a whole may be a unit;
as, one dozen pencils, one pile of hooJcs, one class of hoys.
A number consists of one or more units; as, one, one cent,
seven, seven hooks, ten pens.
Writing numbers is called NoTATiOiN.
The notation in common use is the decimal notation,
which employs ten different characters, or figures, to form
all numbers.
All numbers are properly followed by a point (.). called
the decimal point ; as in the table below. In writing num-
bers in a series or in a sentence, the decimal point is omitted
to avoid confusion with the period.
The following table gives the ten characters of the deci-
mal notation in the upper horizontal row and their names
beneath. Then follow their combinations, forming num-
bers of two figures. Put this diagram on the slate and fill
out completely, writing (1) the figure (2) the combination
(3) the name.

The third figure at the left of the decimal point is called
hundreds; thus, 236 is 2 hundreds 3 tens 6 units, or tico
hundred thirty-six.
* How many tens make 1 hundred ?
These three places of figures — units, tens, and hundreds —
form the first group of numbers, called units.
ARITHMETIC. 9
The fourth, fifth, and sixth places at tlie left of tlie deci-
mal point form the second group, called thousands ; units,
tens, and hundreds of thousands, respectively.
The seventh, eighth, and ninth places at the left of the
decimal point, form the third group, called millions ; units,
tens, and hundreds of millions, respectively.
The following table shows the scheme for reading num-
bers, or Numeration. In reading, begin at the left, read
each group, and add the group name; thus, one hundred
twenty-four sextillion, seven hundred thirty quintillion, etc.,
omitting the name of the unit group:

EXERCISE 8.
Dictation exercise by the class, each giving his own num-
bers without reference to book, slate, or paper. Repeat this
exercise until the class dictate and write rapidly.
EXERCISE 9.
Place the following in tabular form, as in Exercise 5, for
reading in the class:
. 224368192, 1724261, 2004101, 7264180, 2010194, 3762108,

Another notation, called the Roman notation, is some-
times used for writing dates, headings of chapters, and the
like; but it is too cumbrous for ordinary computations.
The Roman notation eniploys seven capital letters, with
their combinations, to represent numbers, viz.:
I V X L C D M
One, five, ten, fifty, one hundred, five hundred, one thousand.

Observe ^
' Repeating a letter repeats its value.
If a letter of smaller value precedes one of larger,
the difference of their values is indicated; if the
reverse, the sum.
A dash ( — ) above a letter indicates so many thou-
sand; thus, L = fifty thousand.

ADDITION.
If you have 8 apples and a schoolmate gives you 5 more,
how many will you have ?
The process of putting together two or more numbers of
the same kind into one is called. Addition.
The result obtained is called the sum or amount.
The sign (-|-), called plus or and, is used to indicate ad-
dition. Thus,
8-\-5=^lo is read 8 plus 5 equals 13^ or 8 and 5 are 13.
Suggestion. — With beginners ''and" is preferable to plus.
EXERCISE 13. (Oral.)
To THE Teacher. — Give pupils pebbles, beans, peas; or, better,
pasteboard cut into strips }q in. wide and 3 in. long, to find out the
results by going through with the combinations. Drill on the fol-

Explanation. — We cannot add 7 pencils and 6 pens,
because they are unlike. Likewise, we cannot add
tens to units. Therefore, write units under units, tens
under tens, etc. The sum of the units is 17; of the
tens, 11; of the hundreds, 7. Adding these results
gives 827.
Why is 5;ero (0) placed after 11?
Why are two zeros (00) placed after 7?

But 17 units are 1 ten 7 units. As the 1 ten belongs
CONTRACTED, in the tens' column, we may write only the 7 units,
3 2-7 as in the contracted operation, and add the 1 ten to the
43 tens' column; thus, 1, 6, 10, 12. Again, 12 tens are 1
^ r 9 hundred, 2 tens. As before, write, in the result, only
the 2 tens and add the 1 hundred to the column of
8 2 7 hundreds.

Compare these two exercises. What did you do in the
first ? In the second ? Since 5 put with 2 makes 7, 5 taken
from 7 will leave 2.
The process of taking one number from another of the
same kind is called Subtraction.
The number from which Ave take is called the minuend.
The number taken away is called the subtrahend.
The number left is called the difference or remainder.
Pick out each in the second iiart you copied above.
The sign ( — ), called minus or less, is used to indicate sub-
traction ; thus,
7 — 5-—2 is read 7 minus 5 equals S, or 7 less 5 are 2.
Suggestion. — With beginners, leas, is to be preferred to minus.

take 7 tens from 1 ten (left in the minuend); hence take 1 hundred
from the 6 hundred in the minuend and put it with the 1 ten, mak-
ing 11 tens. 7 tens from 11 tens leave 4 tens. 4 hundreds from 5

All examples in Addition and Subtraction may be re-
duced to one of the following general forms :
General ( A.— Find the sum of 327, 48, and 452.
Forms. \ B.— Find the difference between 479 and 627.
Illustration 1. — A man has 256 trees in one orchard and
375 in another ; how many has he in both?
We are to put together, or add, the trees in both orchards ;
hence, the general form for the example is:
A. Find the sum of 256 and 375.
Illustration 2. — A man having 324 oranges sold 108 of
them ; how many had he left?
We are to take away the number of oranges sold from the
whole number he had ; hence, the general form for this ex-
ample is:
B. Find the difference between 324 and 108.
EXERCISE 47.
Think of each example carefully, find out what is asked,
and then write the general form for each of the first 20 ex-
amples below:

I bought 2 apples for which I paid 2 cents each ; what
did I pay for both apples?
How do you find it?
At 2 cents each, what must I pay for 3 apples? For 4?
For 5? ForG? For 7? For 8?
Compare your work with the first direction in Example
1, Exercise 18. In this work you are adding by what num-
ber? How many times do you take 2 to get the price of 2
apples? To get the price of 3? Of 4? Of 6? Of 7?
To find how much any number of apples, oranges, pen-
cils, etc., costs at 2c. each, we add by 2's as many times as
there are apples, oranges, pencils, etc.
At 3 cents each what will 2 pencils cost? 3 pencils? 4?
5? 6? 7? 8? 9?
Compare with the first direction in Example 2, Exercise
18. You are now adding by what number? How many
times, for 2 pencils? For 3?5?7?9?
Instead of adding from up, every time, when we wish
to perform examples like the preceding, it is better to com-
mit to memory these results for all numbers up to 10.
The process of taking any number of times a given
number is called Multiplication.
The number to be taken a number of times is called the
multiplicand.
The number showing how many times the multiplicand
is to be taken is called the multiplier.
The result of multiplying is called the product.
Picl: out each in the above illustrations.
The sign ( X ), called times, is used to indicate multiplica-
tion. Thus,
3X3=9 is read 3 times 3 are 9, or 3 3^s are nine.
ARITHMETIC. 35
The multiplicand and multiplier are sometimes called
factors of the product. Thus, in the phrase,
3 ^'s are 6, 3 and 2 are factors of 6.
In general, any whole numbers, which, multiplied to-
gether, will produce a given number, are called factors of
that number.

7385296410
A number applied to a particular object or thing is called
a concrete number; as, 7 bools, 3 yards, 71 days.
A number used Avith no reference to any object or thing
is called an abstract number; as, 7, 3, 71.
EXERCISE 54. (Written.)
Write, in one column, the concrete numbers, and, in
another, the. abstract numbers in the following :
51, 29 inches, 7 pencils, 147, 512, 14 cows, 28 horses, 28,
158, 12 months, 10 cents, 12 knives, 159, 6 dozen pens,
1200, 496.
AVrite 10 abstract and 10 concrete numbers of your own.
When both factors are abstract, either may be the midfi-

DIVISION.
Copy the following exercise on your slates, and in place
of each hlank put how many times the number above the
line must be taken to make the one below:
786389 10 3 75
35 72 42 18 48 54 60 27 63 45
Copy the following, and place below the line the number
of times the number on the left of the curve is contained in
the number on the right:
5)40 7 )56 9 )81 8)32 5 )50 4 )20 10)30 6 )54 5 )27 8)59
How do the last two differ from the others? Find the
largest number below 27 that is an exact number of times
5. Find the remainder after taking away 5 5's from 27.
Do the same with the 8's in 59 and find what remains.
The process of finding how many times one number con-
tains another, is called Division.
The containing number is called the dividend.
The number contained is called the divisor.
The number of times the di\ddend contains the divisor
is called the quotient.
The part of the dividend left over, when the divisor is not
contained an exact number of times, is called the remain-
der. It is always like the dividend.
Pich out each in the ahore exercise.
The sign (-^) is used to indicate division. Thus,
35-^7=5,
Is read,
S5 divided hy 7 is 5. '
It may also be written -^ = 5.

By 6's from 6 to 60, using divisor 6 and the line;
By 7's from 7 to 70, using divisor 7 and sign (-^);
By 8's from 8 to 80, using divisor 8 and sign ( --) ;
By 9's from 9 to 90, using divisor 9 and line.
Bring into the class to read.
To divide a number is to separate it into equal parts.
Thus, when we divide an apple into 2 equal parts, each
part is one-half; when into 3 equal parts, each part is one-
third; when into 4 equal parts, each part is one-fourth; and
so on.
So when we divide a number b}^ 2, or into 2 equal parts,
we get one-half the number; into 3 equal parts, one-third
the number; into 4 equal parts, one-fourth the number.
Thus, dividing 12 by 2 is taking one-half of it; or,
12-^2=one-half of 12=6, 12---4=:one-fourth of 12=3,
12--3=one-third of 12=4, 12--6=one-sixth of 12=2,
and so on.

If now you move the decimal point from the right of the
nmiiber one place toward the left, you have, at the left of

the right of the point, the remainder. Thus,
8.5, 9.7, 37.6,

8 and 5 over ; and so on.
How many lOO's in 395, and what over? In 510? In

How many places to the left shall we move the decimal
point to show a division by 100? By 1000? By 10000?
To divide by 20, since 20 is 2 lO's, we divide first by 10
by moving the point one place to the left, and then this
result by 2. Thus,
395—20=39.5—2=19 15 over.
So with 30, 40, 50, and on to 90.
To divide by 200, since 200 is 2 lOO's, divide first by 100

LOI^G DIVISION.
To divide by numbers of two or more figures.
All operations in division are performed like Short Divis-
ion; but, in divisions by one figure, we easily recognize the
quotients and remainders. With large numbers, however,
the operations must be written, as we cannot tell at sight,
but must find by trial, the quotients and remainders. This
process has received the name of Long Division.
Divide 1459774 by 239.
OPERATION. EXPL-^ATION.-For COHVeil-
239)1459774(6107 Quo. ien^e write the quotient to the
14 34 right of the dividend, as we need
^ y the space below. We find by trial
- ^ „ multiplication that we can take 6
Z^ 239's, or 1434, out of 1459 with 25
187 remainder. Write down the next
000 di\adend figure, 7. There is 1 239
-J o rr A in 257 with a remainder 18; 239's
in 187 with a remainder 187; 7
239's, or 1673, in 1874, with a re-
1^73
201 Eem. mainder 201.
The following hints will be found useful :
1. To find quotient figures, use the first figure of the divi-
sor and the first one or two figures of the dividend. Thus,
in the above example,
2 in U; 2 in 2; 2 in 1; 2 in 18.
2. One or two dividend figures can be used only in case
as many more are left in the dividend as are left in the
divisor. Thus, in dividend 187, 18 cannot be used, as it
leaves one figure only in the dividend, while there are two
others in the divisor. In such a case, the figure in the quo-
tient is 0.
3. If the second or third divisor figure is large, take one
54 CALIFORNIA SERIES.
or two less than the number of times the first divisor figure
is contained in the first dividend figure. Thus,
2 in IJi, 7 ; but 7 239^s are 1673, which is too large.
4. Remember : There must always be a quotient figure
for every figure brought down from the dividend.

Multiplying or dividing both dividend and divisor by the
same number the quotient.
PRINCIPLES.
From these illustrations we see that —
(1) Multiplying the dividend or dividing the divisor hy
any number, midtiplies the quotient hy the same number.
(2) Dividing the dividend or midtiplying the divisor by
any number, divides the quotient by the same number.
(3) Midtiplying or dividing both dividend and divisor by
the same number does not change the quotient.

Q
FACTORS.
What are Factors? (See p. 35.)
Review Exercise 52. What is peculiar in the last 4 num-
bers of that exercise ?
An integral exact divisor of a number is a factor of it.
A number that contains factors is a composite number.
A number that contains no factors is a prime number.
Factors which are themselves prime numbers are prime
factors.
Pick out illustrations of each in Exercise 52.
To find the prime factors of a number.
Find the prime factors of 60.
OPERATION.
Explanation. — Divide the given number by its small-
est prime factor; the quotient by its smallest prime
factor; and so on until the quotient is prime. The
quotient and tlie several divisors are the prime factors,
o
Test by talcing the product of the prime factors, which
should be the number itself.
When the same number occurs in another several times
as a factor, the number of times it occurs is shown by a
small figure placed to the right and above it, and called
the power. Thus, 2, as a factor, occurs twice in 60. Write
it — 2'-] read it — 2 second power.
The following hints will be found useful in factoring.
A number is divisible:
By 2 or 5, if its units figure is divisible by 2 or 5, respect-
ively;
By 3, if the sum of its figures is divisible by 3.
All higher prime factors than these are usually found by
trial division. Try the prime numbers as divisors in their

order upward, commencing with 2, until you reach one
whose quotient is no larger than itself. If none of these
are contained, the number to be factored is prime.
Composite numbers need not be used as divisors, since
every composite number is made up of some smaller prime
numbers than itself, which prime numbers you have al-
ready tried; and no number contains a composite number
as a factor, unless it contains all the prime factors of that
composite number. Thus, a number divisible by 6 is also
divisible by 2 and 3, the factors of 6.
EXERCISE 83.
Make a list of prime numbers to 100, as follows:
1. Write all the numbers in order, from 2 to 100;
2. Since every second number after 2 is divisible by 2,
cross it out;
3. Cross out every third number after 3, because divisi-
ble by 3;
4. Every fifth number after 5, because divisible by 5:
5. Lastly, every seventh number after 7, because divisi-
ble by 7.
Those not crossed are the prime numbers sought.

CALIFORNIA SERIES.
FRACTIONS.
How would, you divide 5 apples equally among 2 boys ?
If you divide 7 apples among 2 boys, how many would
each receive ? Among 3 boys ? 8 apples among 3 boys ?
5~2=? 5--3=? 7—2=? 7--3=? 8--3=?
What does the form of expression ^, |, f , indicate?
A Fraction is an indicated division. Thus, the indicated
division of the remainder in Division is a fraction.
If you divide 1 apple equally among 3 boys, what part
does each receive ? If you divide 2 apples equally among
3 boys, what part of each apple does 1 boy receive ? From
both apples how many pieces does he receive ?
Which would he prefer, one piece from each of the apples
or two pieces from one apple?
Then -g of 2 apples is the same as f of 1 apple.
A fraction, therefore, may be regarded as an equal part or
as equal parts of a unit or one. When so regarded:
(1) The denominator (namer) names the parts and shows
their size;
(2) The numerator (numherer) shows the number of parts.
^, 3 three (number).
Thus, -= . ,^, ' ,
8 eighths (name J.
In the written expression is the denominator above or
below the line ? The numerator ? To what term in division
does each correspond? (See pages 43 and 44.)
The numerator and denominator are the terms of the
fraction.
The value of a fraction is the quotient obtained by per-
forming the indicated division.
A whole number, also called an integer, may be expressed
in fractional form by using 1 for a denominator. Thus,
For ■}, ^, read 7 fs, 27 fs.
ARITHMETIC. 73
A combination of a whole number and a fraction forms a
mixed number ; as 5|, 117^.
A quotient in division, with the remainder at the right
over the divisor, is a mixed number.
When the dividend is equal to, or larger than, the divisor,
the indicated division is an improper fraction; for the di-
vision may be performed and the result expressed as a
whole or a mixed number.

figure on the right of the point be called ? The third ? The
fourth? How do we mark the absence of number in any-

Fractions, then, whose denominators are 10, 100, 1000,
etc., may be written decimally ; the denominator being indi-
cated by the number of places on the right of the decimal
point, and not expressed, as in the common form.
Put a diagram similar to the following on your slate,
extending it further if necessary; under it place the mixed
numbers and fractions of Exercise 143 in their proper
places, and practice reading. In reading, use " and " at the
decimal point only.
Read the fractional part as a whole number first, and add
the decimal name of the last figure; thus,

DOLLARS AND CENTS WRITTEN DECIMALLY.
The decimal notation is employed in writing dollars and
cents in United States money. There are 100 cents in 1
dollar. Hence any number of cents are so many, hun-
dredths of a dollar; thus,
5 cents are yfo-, or .05 of a dollar; 20 cents -f^Q, or .20.
12 dollars 6 cents is written $12.06; 17 dollars 37 cents,
$17.37; 18 dollars 12^ cents, $18.12^ All rules for opera-
tions in decimals are equally true of United States money.
Observe. — The decimal point is 'placed at the right of dollars.
EXERCISE 148.
Read the following as dollars and cents:
1. $7.02 5. $175.75 9. $708.09 13. $927.06

EXERCISE 149.
Write 20 numbers of your own, representing dollars and
cents decimally, and bring to the class for reading and dic-
tation.
To change any fraction from the common to the decimal
form.
How is a fraction reduced to higher terms? (See pp. 75
and 76.) How do you change ^ to a fraction having a de-
nominator 10? \ is how many lOths? f are how many
lOths? f? f? i is how many lOOths? |? i is how
manylOOOths? f? |? |?
Write each result in decimal form.
We see from this, that, to change any fraction from the
common to the decimal form, we reduce it to a fraction
having 10, 100, 1000, etc., for a denominator, and write
decimally.

Hence, to change common to decimal fractions, annex
ciphers to the numerator and divide by the denominator.
If the denominator contains no other prime factors than
2 or 5, the division will be exact; and the number of places
will be equal to the largest number of times 2 or 5 is con-
tained as a factor.
Thus, in yf-, the division is exact, because 5 is the only
prime factor in 125, and there will be 3 places, because 125
ARITHMETIC. 107
contains 5^; in -^^ the division is not exact, because 375
has the factor 3. When the division is not exact, carry it
to 3 or 4 places and express the remainder in the form of a
common fraction.

CIRCULATING DECIMALS.
In cases where the division in the preceding work is not
exact, the figures of the quotient will begin to repeat at
some point of the division, producing what is called a circu-
lating decimal. The circulate, or repeating part, is marked
by a dot over the first and last of the repeating figures.
The number of places before the circulate begins will
equal the greatest number of 2's or 5's in the denominator.
108 CALIFORNIA SERIES.
When special accuracy is required, however, it is better
to divide until the 2's and 5's are all canceled, and express
the remainder as a common fraction. Thus, ■2V-o=.4409,
expressed as a circulate; or .44jiy, expressed fractionally.
ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION OF DECIMALS.

DIVISION OF DECIMALS.
Di^dde .67104 by 3.728.
OPERATION. Explanation. — Any denomination di-
3.728).67104(.18 vided by tlie same denomination gives miits
3 7 '2 8 ^^^ '^ quotient; .671-^3.728 gives miits
9 Q k 9 1 ^^^ '^ quotient ; the remaining places in the
9 Q K 9 4 dividend will be the number of places to
point off in the quotient giving .18.
Whence the law for division of decimals :
Point ojf as many places from the right in the quotient as those in
the dividend exceed those in the divisor.
When the division is not exact, carry the answer to 3 or 4 places
beyond the point; in money operations, to 2 places, adding 1 to the
second figure if the third figure should be 5 or more.
Where special accuracy is required, express the remainder as a
common fraction.
In actual practice it is a shorter and surer way to draw a vertical
line in the dividend after the figure whose denomination is that of
the divisor, first annexing ciphers to the dividend if necessary:
when the division has reached this line put a point in the quotient.
Divide 44.232 by .12.

CONTRACTED MULTIPLICATION OF DECIMALS.
In multiplying decimals having several places on the
right of the point, where the product is desired only to 2 or
3 places, the work may be greatly shortened by multiply-
ing only those denominations that produce the required
places. Thus,
Multiply 428.9543 by 17.454: 2 decimal places required.
112 CALIFORNIA SERIES.
OPERATION. Explanation. — Place denominations of the same
4 2 8.9 543 name under each other. For convenience, use the
1 7.454 ^^^^ figure of the multipher first, if there is a unit
q r\ Q 9 no figure, since units times any denomination gives
Q Q qV ^ tl^^^t denomination. Begin with hundredths in the
multipUcand, the required denomination in the
l/l.Oo answer. 7X5 hundredths^35 hundredths+3 hun-
21.45 dredths (7X4 thousandths=28 thousandtlis, w^hich

748 6~97 ^^ ^^^* ^^^ multiplying by 1 ten we go one place
farther to the right in the multiplicand; by 4 tenths,

BILLS.
When one person sells goods to another, or works for
another, he writes to the buyer or employer an account of
the things sold or work performed, with dates, prices, and
amount. Such a writing is called a Bill.,
When the bill is paid, the person receiving the money
signs his name, with the words, " Received Payment," or,
" Paid,'" at the end. This is called receipting the bill.
The abbreviation Dr. for debtor (ower) is sometimes used,
showing that the person first named in the bill owes the
money.

WEIGHTS AND MEASURES.
A concrete number when written in terms of one denom-
ination is simple ; thus,
125 yards ; 15.25 dollars; 3.435 hours are simple numbers.
But when expressed in two or more different units it is
said to be compound ; thus,
2 yards 2 feet 3 inches is a compound number.
These compound numbers were used before the decimal
notation was known to English-speaking people. Calcula-
tions are made much simpler and easier by the use of
decimals.
The compound number has properly no unit ; although
one of any denomination may be taken as the unit. In
the example given above of 2 yd. 2 ft. 3 in., the unit may
be 1 yd., 1 ft., or 1 in.
15.6 pounds: 7 lb. 6 oz.; 16 ounces; 17 gal. 3 qt. 1 pt.;
13.75 inches; 156 A. 25 rd.; 13 quarts; 7 bu. 3 pk. 7 qt. 1 pt.
From the above select the simple and the compound
numbers, and analyze in each case, thus:
1. is a simple number because it is a tvrit-
ten in of one .
2. is a compound number because it is writ-
ten in or .

Draw on paper a hne 2|- in. long.
Draw a Une that you think is 3| in. long.
Measure it.
Draw on the blackboard a line 1 ft. long; 1| ft.
long; 1 yd. long. .
Divide, without measuring, the last line into
parts each 9 in. long.
Now measure them.
Divide your yard line into 3 equal parts. How
long should each part be? Measure.
Draw the same line vertical or oblique and
divide it into 6 in. parts.
Estimate the width and length of your desk;
measure it. The width and height of the win-
dow; the door; dimensions of the blackboard;
dimensions of the teacher's desk; measure each.
Estimate the length and width of your scbool-
room, and measure, using the yardstick or tape
measure.'
Pace off the length and width of your school
yard, and then measure with the tape-line. Take
long steps. Eind from this how long your paces
are.

LONG MEASUEE-METEIO SYSTEM.
The French express measures and weights decimally,
and their methods and measuring units have been adopted
by most of the nations of Europe. In the United States this
system has been legalized, and is coming slowly into use.
The unit of length is one ten-millionth the meridian dis-
tance from the equator to the pole; is nearly 39.37 inches,
and is called a meter, whence this system is called the
metric system.
The decimal places have received names; thus.

TROY WEIGHT.
The following table is used for weighing gold, silver, and
precious stones :
24 grains (gr.)=l pennyweight (pwt.).
20 pwt. =1 ounce (oz.).
12 oz. =1 pound (ft).).
The Avoirdupois pound=7000 Troy grains.
The purity of gold and silver was formerly expressed in
24ths, or carats; thus if yf of a piece of metal was gold, it
was 18 carats fine.
This reckoning of fineness of silver and gold by 24ths, or
carats, is now used only for jewelry. In buying and sell-
ing, as well as in coining, fineness is now reckoned in thou-
sandths; thus,
925 fine means that -fw^ of the entire weight is pure metal.

LONGITUDE AND TIME.
The earth turns on its axis 360°, or once around, in 24
hours; therefore in one hour it turns -2V of 360°= 15°.
If then we divide the degrees of longitude between two
places by 15, the quotient is the difference of time in hours.
Or if we multiply the difference of time, in hours, by 15,
the product is the difference in degrees of longitude. Now
the hour and degree have the same division into minutes
and seconds; hence,
Hoursxl5 = degrees of longitude.
Minutes of timexl5 = minutes of longitude.
Seconds of timexl5 = seconds of longitude.
And difference of longitude divided by 15 gives corre-
sponding divisions of difference of time.

difference of time is 3 hr. 25 min. 30 sec?
2. Two towns have a difference of longitude of 17° 48'

In changing difference of time to difference of longitude,
we multiply by 15 and divide the products of the minutes
and seconds by 60 to reduce. Multiplying by 15 and divid-
ing by 60 is equivalent to dividing by 4, hence we may
shorten the work in this Avay:

The change of time from place to place is very incon-
venient for travelers and railways. To do away with this
the United States has been divided into four districts by
lines running nearly north and south. The eastern district
takes the time of the 75th degree of longitude west from
Greenwich; the next district takes the 90th degree; the
next the 105th, and the western, which includes all the
Pacific states and territories, takes the 120th degree.

Flowing water is measured by the inch in California.
The inch, however, is not, at present (1887), a fixed unit,
but varies by custom of the different companies supplying
water for irrigation or domestic purposes. By statute, the
inch is the water flowing through a square inch of vertical
surface, the center of the opening being A\ inches below
the surface of the reservoir from which the water is flowing.

UNITED STATES MONEY.
United States money is written decimally, the dollar be-
ing the unit. Five decimal places have been named.
The mill is not represented by any
coin. Results should be carried to hun-
dredths only.
Gouverneur Morris first recommended
making our money in decimal divisions; afterward Jeffer-
son and Hamilton improved upon his plan.
The Spanish silver dollar was chosen as the unit, and
coinage commenced in 1792.
Gold and silver are soft, hence the coins are now alloyed
with y^Q- of some other metal to harden them. In gold
coins the alloy is a mixture of silver and copper; the dollar
weighs 25.8 grains, and all other coins are multiples of this
weight. They are 2-|-, 3-, 5-, 10-, and 20-dollar pieces.
Silver coins are alloyed with copper. The dollar weighs
412^ grains; the smaller coins are lighter; thus, 2 half dol-
lars, 4 quarters, 10 dimes, or 20 half dimes weigh but 385.8
grains. The half dime is now made of nickel and copper,
and the 2- and 1-cent pieces of copper.

When several successive operations in multiplication and
division are to be performed in the same example, each
operation may be determined by ordinary analysis and
indicated by placing the number concerned above or below
the division line. Thus, ,
If 15 acres of land cost $620, what are 12 acres worth at
the same rate?

Observe that in these examples, one number is of the
same kind as the answer sought, and the others are in
hke pairs. In the last example, 50 is like the answer, days.
Then there are two numbers of bushels, and two of horses.
The first two examples have one pair each, beside the num-
ber tliat is like the answer.
The following is a short statement of the method: Begin
with the number like the answer; then in each pair reason
from the given number of the pair to 1, and from 1 to the
number required.
The results all the way through are like the required
answer.

PROPORTION.
Examples in General Analysis will be seen to contain one
number of the same kind as the thing required in the
answer, while the other numbers are arranged in pairs.
A formula or statement called a Proportion is sometimes
used in such examples, to precede the performing of the
work and take the place of the logical and proper analysis
of the example.
3 days is what fraction of 12 days? $4 is what fraction
of $24 ? 9 horses of 16 horses ?
A ratio is a fraction whose terms are of the same kind.
Thus, J 2" o^' 4 expresses the ratio of 3 to 12, or of 3 days to
12 days.
Review Exercise 137, examples 1 to 16, reading, " What
is the ratio of 8 to 20?" Substitute concrete terms; thus,
8 men to 20 men.
A ratio is often written by using two dots between the
terms. Thus, the ratio of 8 to 20 is written 8 : 20.
What is the ratio of 6 to 9 in its lowest terms? Of 12 to
18? What can you say of these two ratios? We will write
them equal. f-:||, or (6 : 9) = (12 : 18).
Two equal ratios form a proportion.
In the written expression four dots ( : : ) are often used for
the sign =.
The first and last terms of a proportion are the extremes ;
the second and third, the means.
In any proportion the product of the means equals the
product of the extremes; thus, 9X1^=6X18. Hence, the
product of the means divided by one extreme will give the
other extreme; or, the product of the extremes divided by
one mean will give the other mean. Thus,

To determine and write a proportion.
If 15 A. of land are worth $620, what are 12 A. worth?
OPERATION. Explanation. — $620 is like the required
15:12::620:? answer. 15 and 12 are A. The ratio of 15 A.
12x620 to 12 A. must be the same as the cost of 15 A.,
=4 J 6. ^(320, to the cost of 12 A.; or, as written above.
Soh^e as in Anah^sis.
15
To arrange the terms,
1. Place the number which is hke the required answer
for the third term;
2. If, in the nature of the problem, the answer ought to
be larger than the third term, arrange the pair so that the
second term shall be larger than the first,- but if the answer
should be smaller than the third term, let the smaller of
the two numbers be the second term. Then divide the
product of the means by the given extreme.
Sometimes the result depends upon the relations of sev-
eral pairs, producing a compound proportion. In such case
consider the result with reference to each pair separately,
as in simple proportion.
Thus, in the third analysis. General Analysis, consider
first the horses alone; then the bushels alone.

PARTNERSHIP.
Two men paid $6 for a pasture 1 month. If each puts in
2 coAVS what should each pay? If one puts in 2 cows and
the other 1 cow what should each pay? If the first had
his 2 cows in pasture 4 weeks and the second his 1 cow
only 2 weeks how much should each pay?
Thus, we see that each man's share of the expense de-
pends upon the product of the number of cows pastured
and the time, if the times are different.
An association of two or more persons together in busi-
ness is called Partnership.
The persons associated are called partners.
The money subscribed is called the capital or stock.
Each partner receives the same part or fraction of the
losses or gains that his capital is of the whole capital in-
vested, if all invest for the same time; if for different times,
each partner's capital must be nuiltiplied by the time it is
in use and the product taken as his share of the capital;
the sum of these products being taken as the entire capital,
provided no special division has been agreed upon.
Property of all kinds owned by a firm are its assets.
Its debts are liabilities.

COMMISSlOjSr.
Some men are employed in transacting business for oth-
ers, such as buying and selling goods or lands, renting
houses, collecting money.
These men are found in our business centers under
various names, including commission merchants, brokers,
auctioneers, real estate agents, collectors, and the like.
190 CALIFORNIA SERIES.
The money received for their services is called Commis-
sion.
It is usually a percentage (1) on the money paid for prop-
erty bought, (2) received for property sold, (3) on the
amount of money collected.
The sum left after taking out the commission is called
the proceeds.
A broker's commission is called brokerage.

ten promise to pay me $2000 if the house burns, and charges
me ^% per year of the promised sum for the promise. What

A company is made up of two or more persons joining

Insurance is a guaranty of a sum of money to be paid
in case of loss of property or life.
The company making the written contract to pay losses
is an Insurance Company.
The written contract is called the policy.
The sum paid by the owners of property for insurance is
called the premium.
The 'premium is a certain fraction, or per cent, of the sum
insured, and is paid in advance.
Fire Insurance Companies rarely insure property for more
than f of its value, and in no case pay for more than the
ARITHMETIC. 195
value of the property destroyed, whatever may be the face
of the poHcy.
In Life Insurance the premium is a sum of money vary-
ing with the amount of insurance and the age of the
individual.
A fee of $1 or more is sometimes charged for making out
the policy.
Do insurance companies lose money by 'paying these losses?

TAXES.
Towns, counties, and states are at expense to maintain
schools, courts, roads, public buildings, officers, and the
like. To meet these expenses the people are required to
pay a per cent of the value of their property.
The money paid by an individual for public expense is
called a Tax.
Taxable property is of two kinds: (1) Personal, or mov-
able property; as, money, tools, carriages, stock; (2) Real
estate, or immovable property; as lands, buildings.
In California, men between the ages of 21 and 60 are
also taxed so much a head without regard to property.
This is called poll tax. The amount raised by poll tax
makes the property tax so much less.

DUTIES.
The expenses of the U. S. Government are mostly paid
by taxes on imported goods.
200 CALIFORNIA SERIES.
Such taxes are called customs or duties.
Another object of duties is " protection to home industry."
Find out what you can about " j^rotection."
Duties are of two kinds: specific and ad valorem.
A specific duty is a charge on goods by weight, number,
or measure without regard to value.
An ad valorem duty is a per cent of the cost of the goods
at the port from which shipped. Both classes of duties
are laid upon some goods.
Gross weight is the weight of goods including the boxes
or other packing material.
Net weight is the weight after deducting the weight of
the packing material.
Duties are estimated on the net weight, and all custom-

STOCKS.
AVhen a number of men wish to form a railroad company,
insurance company, bank, or the like, they obtain permis-
sion by law, and subscribe a sum of money for the under-
taking.
Companies authorized by law to carry on business are
called corporations.
The money invested is called the Stock.
The stock is divided into equal parts, commonly of $100
each, called shares. It may be bought and sold in the
market like other property, its value depending mainly
upon the prosperity of the company.
The nominal value of the stock is called the par value.
The price which the stock brings in the market is called
the market value.
202 CALIFORNIA SERIES.
If the market value is above par, the stock is at a pre-
mium; if below, at a discount. Thus, stock selling for $118
per share is at 18% premium; for $82, at 18% discount.
Usually, the broker's commission for buying or selling is
a per cent of the jxrr value of the stock dealt in; but in
mining stocks it is reckoned upon the market value of the
stock bought or sold.
The earnings of the company, after deducting the ex-
penses, are divided among the stockholders, and are called
dividends.
Dividends, premium, and discount are reckoned on the
par value.
The following table is taken from the -stock quotations
(market value) found in the daily papers, par value $100:

INTEEEST.
Suppose a friend of yours wishes to buy a house for $3000.
Not having that sum in ready money, he borrows $1000 of
you and agrees to pay you S% of the sum per year so long
as he keeps it. What does he pay you a year for the use
of the money? What for 2 yr.? If he keeps it for 1 year,
what is the whole sum of money he pays you ? If he keeps
it 2 yr. ? 3 yr. ? 2^ yr. ? 3 yr. 6 mo. ? 2 yr. 3 mo. ?
Money paid for the use of money is called Interest.
The sum lent is called the principal.
The per cent of interest for a given time is called the
rate. It is understood as being for a year unless otherwise
specified.
The principal and interest added make the amount.
Banks usually loan money by the month; and sometimes
pay on deposits from 3 to 5% a year. They reckon 12
months of 30 days each, or 360 days, to a year.
The United States laws count 365 days to a year, but
this reckoning is not in common use among business men.

6 hundredths of the principal per year means half as
many hundredths as months; therefore add ^ the number
of months to 6 times the number of years for the hun-
dredths of the multiplier. An odd month gives ^ hun-
dredth, or 5 thousandths; and since a month, or 30 days,
gives 5 thousandths, -J- of 30 days, or 6 days, gives 1 thou-
sandth. Therefore,

EXERCISE 239. (Written.)
Select 10 examples from Exercise 232, perform, and then

to the class for dictation.
PAETIAL PAYMENTS.
When a person borrows money it is customary to give the
lender a written promise to pay it back, with other specifi-
cations, as that of interest, stated. Thus, if I borrow $500
of James Willson of Sacramento, at 7%, I write:
$500. Sacramento, Cal., Aug. 8, 1885.
Six months after date, value received, I promise to pay
James Willson, or order, Five Hundred -j^o Dollars, with
interest at seven per cent per annum.
Samuel Jones.
A written promise to pay a sum of money is called a
note. The date at which the money is to be paid is called
its maturity.
A note containing the words "or bearer" may be col-
lected when due by the person having it in possession.
If James Willson wishes to make the above note payable
to bearer, he indorses it with his name. If he wishes to
make it payable to Alfred Smith he indorses it:
Pay to Alfred Smith, or order.
James Willson.
Alfred Smith may transfer it in the same way.
One who indorses a note becomes responsible for its pay-
ment.
The face of a note or other business paper is the sum
mentioned in it.
If Samuel Jones wishes to make the above note a demand
i
ARITHMETIC. 215
note he writes the words, "on demand" in place of "six
months after date."
It is sometimes convenient to pay a note in parts, or
installment'. Such payments are called Partial Payments.
They should be written, with their dates, across the back
of the note, and are then called indorsements.
Suppose the above note to have the following indorse-
ments:
Nov. 8, 1885, received $250.
Apr. 14 ^ 1886, received $150.
Write the note on paper and put on the indorsements.
What money was due Nov. 8, 1885?
What was due after the payment of that date?
What was due on the remainder Apr. 14, 1886?
What was still due after the payment of that date ?
All payments must first go towards paying interest due.
If a payment is not enough to pay the interest, it is counted
with the next payment, and its date left out.
Suggestion. — The teacher may ask the trustees to purchase a
book of note blanks for the practical use of classes. Five of the
following notes should be written on the printed blanks.
EXERCISE 240. (Written.)

COMPOUND INTEREST.
Sometimes when a note specifies that interest on it is to
be paid yearly, semi-yearly, quarterly, or the like, a special
agreement is made that if such interest is not paid when
ARITHMETIC. 217
due it shall be added to the principal, and the amount
becomes a new principal for the next period.
This method of computing interest is called Compound
Interest. In many states it is prohibited by law.
Compound the interest at 8X on $540 for 7 mo. 12 da.,
payable quarterly.

Six months after date, I promise to pay to the order of
James Kenney, Fifteen Hundred y\% Dollars, value received.
Allen Paine.
Suppose James Kenney carries the above note to the
bank, April 4, to get money on it. The bank will deduct
from the face a certain per cent, say 1% per month, from
April 4 to the date of maturity, and pay him the balance.
Find the balance on this note.
This is called discounting the note.
Observe. ^
1. The discount is made on the face of non-inter-
est bearing notes.
2. Wheyi the note bears interest the discount is
made on the amount of face and interest at
maturity.
In some of the United States three days, called days of
grace, are allowed for the payment of the note after it is
actually due, discount being made for the extra time.
Days of grace are not allowed in California.

What does the "balance" in the above account show?
If the amount of money on hand does not agree with bal-
ance, what does the difference show ? In the account, which
column is the larger? Could the other column ever be
larger in a "cash" account? Whyf
The "balance" should be found twice a month, at least,
and oftener as the business is larger. Business firms and
banks balance their " cash " every day. It is well to write
the balance in red ink. Why?
Open an account for February wdth the above balance on
hand, and write items of your own. Take care that at no
time your " paid " items exceed the " received " items. Bal-
ance and bring to the class.

EXCHANGE.
Suppose you owe A. B. Stanton of New York $500. To avoid
inconvenience and risk of sending the money you may buy
of your banker, say D. B. Fairbanks, an order on some New
York banker, say S. A. Spring, to pay A. B. Stanton.
ARITHMETIC. 220
You send the order to A. B. Stanton: and he, on receiv-
ing it, presents it to S. A. Spring. Spring writes acceptance
across the face as above, if willing to pay it. At maturity,
30 days from acceptance, Stanton presents the order and
receives the money. If he wishes the money before ma-
turity, the banker w^ill discount it for the difference in
time.
Such an order is called a draft, or bill of exchange ; and
this method of making payments. Exchange.
A draft is always made out in the money of the country
on which it is drawn.
Drafts are either " sight" or " time" drafts; that is, pay-
able on presentation, or at a certain specified time after
presentation.
Which is the above draft?
The maker of a draft is called the drawer; the person
to whom addressed, the drawee ; and the person to whom
payable, the payee.
Name each in the above draft.
A draft may be transferred, like a note, by indorsement.
If the merchants of New York owe the merchants of San
Francisco more than San Francisco merchants owe them,
bills of exchange on New York will be plentiful in San
Francisco and can be purchased cheaply, or at a discount ;
if the balance is due the other way, bills of exchange on
New York will be scarce in San Francisco, and will, there-
fore, be dear, or at a 'premium.
Time drafts are discounted to the buyer for the time
specified. The time discount is understood to be the rate
for 1 year, unless otherwise stated.
All discounts or premiums are reckoned as per cent of
the face of the draft. The above draft on S. A. Spring has
a time discount at 7%; if it be purchased at 1% premium
what is paid for it? At 1% discount?

The payment of small sums at a distance is often effected
by means of postal money orders or by bank checks.
A money order is, in effect, a sight draft drawn by the
postmaster of the debtor upon the postmaster of the cred-
itor; payable to the creditor, or order.
Name the payer ^ drawer, and payee.
Money orders are subject to the following charges and
regulations :
On orders not exceeding $10 8 cents.

A single order may include any amount, to $100.
Not more than 3 orders may be issued in one day, to the
same applicant, payable at the same office, to the same
payee.
A money order is negotiable, but subject to one transfer
only.
A check is, in effect, a sight draft on a bank.
The value of a check as a medium of exchange is, that
it passes for money, when certified or signed by the cashier
of the bank on which it is drawn, and properly indorsed.
Such a check is called a certified check, and is usually
cashed by any bank at which it is presented, without dis-
count to one who keeps an account with that bank. To one
not keeping an account with that bank, it is customary to
discount it at 20 ct. or 25 ct. per $100, and a like rate is
charged the buyer of such a check by a bank with which
he does not keep an account.

The O's may be omitted in the operation, and because 60

remember it is 6 tens in 12 tens and not 6 in 124. Omit
mentally the right hand dividend figure.
This operation may be extended to any number.
In squaring a number, as 48.6,

ft. You want to know its dimensions.
Cut a piece of paper 3 inches square.
As near as we can determine by in-
spection 1600 (40-) sq. ft. is tlie largest
floor. Let your paper represent this
square floor and label as shown in the accompanying figure. There
are still 425 sq. ft. to be built
on. By adding strips of the
same width to either 2 or 4
sides of a square, we shall
preserve the square form. It
is easier to add to 2 sides. The
strips put on will be of the
same length as the square
already made, or 40 ft.; mak-
ing the 2 strips 80 ft. long.

Explanation, — Suppose we have
to cut a cubical block of stone to
contain 10648 cu. in. AVe wish its
dimensions.
The largest cube that can be deter-
mined by inspection contains 8000
cu. in., or 20^ Its edge will be 20
in. 2648 cu. in. remain to add to
the block. Draw on the board a
cube similar to the figure here and
label it the same.
8000 cu. in.
Since a cube has six equal faces,
we may cover them all with blocks
of equal width and preserve the
cubical form ; or better, three adja-
cent faces. These 3 additions will
be 20 in. by 20 in. or each have 400
sq. in. in their face, making 1200
sq. in. for the surface of the three.
They can contain 2648 cu. in.
Therefore, their thickness will be
2648^1200 = 2 in. with 248 cu. in.
over. Draw these additions on the
board and label.
2400 cu. iu.
Three oblong pieces 20 in. long,
2 in. wide, and 2 in. thick, con-
taining in all 240 cu. in., must be
added. Draw and label. Lastly,
a small cube, whose edge is 2 in.,
contents 8 cu. in., must be add-
ed. Draw and label. The cube
is now complete. The addi-
tions contain 2648 cu. in., using
all the material.
Draw the completed cube rep-
resenting the additions as shown
in the figure on the next page.
