PREFACE.
THIS work has been written with the view of providing
'book for class use in our Schools and Colleges, which shall
sun the capacities of the young beginner and at the same
time meet the requirements of the advanced student.
So far as has been possible within the necessary limits of
the book, I have carefully avoided laying down arbitrary
rules and have endeavoured to establish the leading proposi
tions of the science of Arithmetic by a process of simple
reasoning, being fully convinced that a mere ) ^Al
facility in manipulating figures, sufficient the* e
for the calculations necessary in everyday lift
conducive to a healthy development of the K i c " .
I have accordingly explained the processes of At K
means of specimen examples fully wor> 1 rut, and ii3 ry
division of the subject I have V^.^i *n simple prh. ;>les
and have tried to proceed by ^at^.d natural steps to
those of a more complex natu;j.
Compound quantities have been assigned a somewhat
earlier place than is usually given them ; in ether parts of the
subject however there is but little departure from the com*
mon order. Decimals have been treated as a natural ex
tension of the common system of notation ; but the principles
of vulgar fractions have been made use of here and there for
purposes of explanation. The method adopted for the addi
tion and subtraction of Recurring Decimals requires no con
version and reconversion to vulgar fractions* A little more
( * )
space than usual has been devoted to the subject to Pro*
blems, and I venture to hope that I have been able to make*
ft simpler and more attractive by means of careful arrange
ment and classification. Although I have adopted the Uni
tary Method (a method so simple in its application and so
suitable for young learners) in the section on Problems, 1 have
not abandoned the Rule of Three as some writers have done,
because I do not consider it to be a misleading process, if
properly understood. The sections on Stocks and other
branches of Commercial Arithmetic I have tried to make in
some degree complete. And I may add that although the
book contains nothing that might strictly be called original,
yet it will be found to differ in many ways from any existing
textboo u ^n the subject.
contains a large number of examples for exer
cise been worked out several times from the
prir ,, jt it would be presumptuous to hope that
t ^ A escaped notice. I shall be grateful to Teachers
at> ^tudents for any correction that they may send me.
I have to thank some friends for valuable criticism and
advice and also for correcting .. d revising many of the proof
sheets. I have the pleasure of expressing my thanks also to
some of the students of the M. A.O. College, Aligarh, foi
great assistance in verifying the answers to many of the
examples.

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.
This edition has been carefully revised and the few errora
that crept into the former edition have been corrected. I have
inserted some explanatory matter and a few new examples in
certain parts of the book. The book has been further en
larged by the insertion of the Punjab and Allahabad Univer
sity Entrance Examination Papers. A few examples have
been slightly altered for securing neat answers. These addi
tions and alterations will, however, be no hindrance to both
the editions being used together in the same class.

ARITHMETIC.
I. INTRODUCTION.
1. A quantity is anything which may be regarded as being
made up of parts like the whole. [Ham&lin Smith.
Thus, a sum of money, the length of a rod, the weight of a sack
of rice, a number of men, are quantities.
2. A quantity is called a unit quantity [or simply a unit}
when it is used for the purpose of comparing the magnitudes of
other quantities of the same kind. [J. B. Lock.
Thus, a rupee is used as the unit of money when we speak of
a certain sum as three rupees. A boy is the unit when we speak
of a certain class in a school as containing fifteen boys.
3. That which indicates the magnitude of a quantity relatively
to its unit is called a number.
Thus, the number three indicates the relative magnitude of the
quantity three rupees as compared with its unit a rupee.
4. The Measure or numerical value of a quantity is the
number which expresses how many times the unit is contained in
the quantity.
Thus, if we use a yard as the unit of length, and speak of a
certain length as five yards, the number five is the measure or
numerical value of that length.
Note. The numerical value of a quantity indicates its relative
magnitude. The absolute magnitude of a quantity is indicated by
its numerical value and unit together.
5. A number is called an abstract number, when it is not
attached lo any particular unit ; as, four, five, seven.
6. A number is called a concrete number, when it is attached
to some particular unit ; as, four horses, five men, seven yards.
7. Arithmetic is a part of the Science which teaches the use
of numbers.
II. THE METHOD OF REPRESENTING NUMBERS
BY FIGURES.
8. In Arithmetic we f epresent all numbers by means of the
ten symbols or figures i, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, o, called digits. The
first nine of these figures are called the significant digits ; the
last is called zero, cipher or nought
* C. A. I
2 ARITHMETIC
9. Numbers from one to nine are represented by the nine
significant digits taken in order. Thus
one two three four five six seven eight nine
1234567 89
10. All higher nuntbers are represented by two or more of the
figures, the following convention being adopted :
It is agreed that in a line of figures, the figure in the first place
towards the right shall have its simple value? and shall represent
so many units ; the figure in the second place from the right shall
have ten times its simple value, and shall represent so many tensGJ
units, or tens ; the figure in the third place shall have ten times
the value it should have in the second place or one hundred times its
simple value, and shall represent so many tens of tens, or hundreds,
of units, or hundreds ; thus 435 shall express one hundred times
four units, together with ten times three units and also five units
more ; or in other words, it shall express four hundreds, three tens
and five units : and so on, the value of a figure increasing tenfold
at each step of removal towards the left.
11. The following table, called the Numeration Table,
gives the respective names of places of figures representing a
number.

*The value of a figure which it hA when it stands by itself it
called its simple or intrinsic value. The value of a figure which it has
in consequence of its position in a line of figures is called its local or
accidental value*
NUMERATION 3
The periods which follow those in the above table are trillionsj
quadrillions, quintillions, sextillions, septillions, octillions, etc.
12. The symbol o has no value in itself and represents no
number. In a line of figures, o in the first place (towards the
right) indicates the absence of units ; in the second place, absence
of tens ; in the third place, absence of hundreds ; and so on.
Thus
30 represents three tens and no units \
400 represents four hundreds, no tens, also no units ;
309 represents three hundreds, no tens } and nine units,
13. It appears then, that numbers from one to nine are re
presented by one figure ; numbers from ten to ninetynine are
represented by two figures ; numbers from one hundred to nim
hundred and ninetynine are represented by three figures ; numbers
from one thousand to nine thousand^ nine hundred and ninetynint
are represented by four figures ; and so on.
14. The method above explained of representing numbers by
means of ten figures and their combinations was invented by the
Hindus. But Europeans call it the Arabic Notation because it
was introduced into Europe by the Arabs who had learnt it from
the Hindus.
NUMERATION.
15. Numeration is the art of reading a number expressed
in figures.
Art. 9 enables the learner to read the numbers expressed by
one figure ; and the following table will enable him to read the
numbers expressed by two figures.
10 ten 23 twentythree 36 thirtysix

63 sixtythree 80 eighty 97 ninetyseven
64 sixtyfour 81 eightyone 98 ninetyeight
65 sixtyfive 82 eightytwo 99 ninetynine
16. When a number is expressed by three figures, the third
figure from the right is read as so many hundred) the two remain
ing figures being read together as in the above table. Thus
the number expressed by 100 is read one hundred ;
the number expressed by 340 is read three hundred and forty ;
the number expressed by 452 is read/<?r hundred and fiftytwo ;
the number expressed by 607 is read six hundred and seven.
H. If a number is expressed by more than three figuresi
divide the line of figures by commas into periods of three figures
each, commencing from the right ; and read the first period
(towards the right) as in Art. 16, read the second period as so
many thousand) the third period as million) the fourth as thousand)
the fifth as billion) the sixth as thousand) and so on. The periods
must be read off from left to right in order.
Thus
2,435 j s read 'two thousandfanx hundred and thirtyfive 1 ;
23,204 is read 'twentythree thousand) two hundred and
four' ;
234,021 is read 'two hundred and thirtyfour thousand 'and
twentyone' ;
324,103,200 is read 'three hundred and twentyfour million^
one hundred and three thousand) two hundred 1 ;
56)204,340,432,004 is read 'thirtysix billion) two hundred and four
thousand) three hundred and forty million^ four
hundred and thirtytwo thousand and four*.
i,boo represents a thousand ;
1,000,000 represents a million ;
1 ,000,000,000,000 represents a billion.

NOTATION.
18. Notation is the art of representing by figures a number
expressed in words.
The method is as follows : %
Begin at the left hand, and put down the required figures in the
places necessary to express the number, according to the Numera
tion Table ; and fill up the vacant places, if any, with ciphers.
Thus, to represent by figures the number, five million^ twenty
eight thousand^ three hundred and four > we put down 5 in the place
of millions or in the seventh place from the right, 2 in the place of
tens of thousands or in the fifth place, 8 in the place of thousands
or in the fourth place, 3 in the place of hundreds or in the third
place, and 4 in the place of units or in the first place ; and then we
fill up the sixth and second places with ciphers ; and the number
expressed in figures is 5028304.

ADDITION
III. ADDITION.
1. Addition is the method of finding a single number which
is equal to two or more given numbers taken together.
The given numbers are called summands, and the single
number obtained by adding them is called their sum or amount.
. The sign 4 signifies thart the two numbers between which
it is placed are to be added. Thus, 742 signifies that 2 is to be
added to 7. The sign + is called the plus sign, and 7 + 2 is
read "seven plus two".
The sign stands for the words "is equal to" or "equals."
Thus, 2 + 3=5 states that the sum of 2 and 3 is equal to 5. The
sign = is called the sign of equality, and 2 + 3=5 is reac * " two
plus three is equal to five" or "two plus three equals five."
23. The numbers one, two, three, four, five, etc.* being taken
in order, if we add the number one to any one of them, we get the
number next following : thus 1+1=2 ; 2+i3 ; 3 + l* a 4; and
so*on.
We obtain the sum of 5 and 3 thus :
5+3=5+2+1
5+ 1 + 1 + 1
=6+1+1
= 8.
Results thus obtained are registered in the following table, called
the Addition Table, which the learner should commit to memory.

Note. As facility in mental addition is the basis of all accurate
facility in the subsequent processes of Arithmetic, the pupil should
have a sufficient number of exercises in mental addition before he
proceeds further. The use of fingers should be strictly prohibited.
10 ARITHMETIC
EXERCISES IK MENTAL ADDITION.

378
409
_
843
placing units under units, tens under tens, hundreds under hun
dreds, and so on and then draw a line under the lowest line of
12 ARITHMETIC
figures. Under this line we place the sum which is found in the
following way :
We first add the units, thus (8+9 + 6) units = 23 units =2
tens + 3 units ; we place the 3 under the column of units and carry
on the 2 tens for adding to the column of tens. Next we add the
tensi thus (2+7+0+5) tens =14 tens =i hundred +4 tens ; we
place the 4 under the column of tens and carry on the i hundred
for adding to the column of hundreds. We then add the hundreds,
thus (1 + 3 + 4) hundreds = 8 hundreds ; and we place the 8 under
the column of hundreds. "
Mental Process : 8, 17, 23;
carry 2, 9, 14 ;
carry I, 4> 8.

IV. SUBTRACTION.
25. Subtraction is the method of finding the number which
Is left when the smaller of two given numbers is taken from the
greater.
The greater of the two given numbers is called the minuend)
the less is called the subtrahend, and the number found by sub
traction is called the remainder or difference.
The sign  , placed between two numbers, signifies that the
second number is to be subtracted from the first. Thus 74
signifies that 4 is to be subtracted from 7. The sign  is called
the minus sign, and 74 is read "seven minus four."
6. It follows from the definition of subtraction that it is the
process of finding the number which must be codded to a given
number to make a larger given number. Hence subtraction is
sometimes called complementary addition.
We are able to subtract a small number from another) from the
known results of the Addition Table.
Example. 743$ because 4+37.

now has, he would have as many as Ram : how many has Gopal ?
15. I have 16 marbles ; John has 28 ; how many more should
I get to have as many as John ?
87. In the case of large numbers the process of subtraction
is as follows :
Example i. Subtract 34 from 86.
We place the smaller number under the greater) as in 86
Addition. We now take 4 units from 6 units, and set down 34
the result, which is 2 units, under the column of units ; 52
16 ARITHMETIC
next, we take 3 tens from 8 tens, and set down the result, 5 tens,,
under the column of tens. Thus the remainder obtained is 52.
Example 2. Subtract 368 from 952.
Here, proceeding as in the previous example, we meet 95 2
with the difficulty of taking a greater digit from a less, and 3^8
to get over this difficulty we avail ourselves of the following 584
principle, usually termed borrowing : The minuend and
subtrahend may be increased by the same number 'without altering
their difference ; and we reason thus :
We cannot take 8 units from 2 units ; we therefore add 10 units
to the 2 units, making 12 units, and we take 8 units from the 12
units, and set down the result, 4 units, under the column of units.
Having increased the upper number by 10 units, we add, by way of
compensation, i ten to the lower number, changing 6 tens into
7 tens. We have now to take 7 tens from 5 tens, and as we cannot
do so, we add 10 tens to the 5 tens, making 1 5 tens, and we take
7 tens from the 1 5 tens, and set down the result, 8 tens, under
the column of tens. Having increased the upper number by 10
tens, we add, by way of compensation, i hundred to the lower
number, changing 3 hundreds into 4 hundreds. We now take 4
hundreds from 9 hundreds, and set down the result, 5 hundreds,
under the column of hundreds.
Note. Instead of the above process it will be practically con
venient to determine how much must be added to the subtrahend
to make up the minuend.
Example. Subtract 576 from 829.
We are to find the number which being added to 576 makes
up 829.
We place the smaller number under the greater, as in Addition.
We now see that 6 units + 3 units =9 units; we therefore
set down the 3 under the column of units : next, 7 tens + 5 829
tens 12 tens ; we set down the 6 under the column of tens, $76
and carry i hundred : then, (145) hundreds 4 2 hundreds = 8 253
hundreds ; we set down the 2 under the column of hundreds.
Mental Process : 6 and 3 are 9 ;
7 and 5 are 12 ;
carry i, 6 and 2 are 8.

positive number ; and the number to which the sign is prefixed
is called a negative number. If no sign is prefixed to a number
it is to be considered as positive. Numbers connected by the

The most convenient method of finding the value of an expres
sion (in which several numbers are connected by the sign + or  )
is to find the sums of the positive and negative numbers separately
and then to take their difference.
Example. Find the value of 273369+821403.

MULTIPLICATION
V. MULTIPLICATION.
9. Multiplication is a short method of finding the sum of
a certain number of repetitions of a given number.
The number to be repeated is said to be multiplied^ the
number which indicates how often it is to be repeated. Thus?
when 4 is multiplied by 3, the result is 4 + 444 or 12.
The number which is multiplied is called the multiplicand
the number by which it is multiplied is called the multiplier
and the resulting number is called the product.
The sign of multiplication is x . Thus 7x4 signifies that 7 is
to be multiplied by 4, and is read "seven into four" or "four times
seven." Sometimes a dot ( . ) is used instead of x .
3O. The multiplier and the multiplicand may be interchanged
ithout altering the value of the product. Thus 3x4 = 4x3 ; for,
4 = 34313 + 3 = 12, and 4x3=444 + 4= 12.
The multiplier and multiplicand are called factors of the
product.

*2 ARITHMETIC
The product is found in the following way :
3 times 5 units is i5 units ; we set down 5 in the place of units,
and carry on I for adding to tens : next, 3 times 9 tens is 27 tens }
and adding I carried, the result is 28 tens ; we set down 8 in the
place of tens, and carry on 2 for adding to hundreds : next, 3 times
o is o, * and adding 2 carried, the result is^ 2 hundreds ; we set
down 2 in the place of hundreds : then, 3 times 2 thousands is
thousands ; and we set down 6 in the place of thousands. Thus
the product is 6285.

20. Find the value of 725 + 7254725 + 725 + 725.
33. If we write a cipher to the right of a number its value is
increased tenfold : hence, when we multiply a number by 10, the
product is obtained by annexing o to the number. Thus 23 x 10
230. Similarly, when we multiply a number by 100, iooo,..,the
product is obtained by annexing oo, ooo,... to the number.
Also, if we have to multiply a number by 30, we may first
multiply it by 3, and then annex o to the result ; the final result
will be the product required. So also, if we have to multiply by
300, we may first multiply by 3 and then annex oo to the result.

10. 7295 by 90, 800, 7000, 60000, 500000.
34. It is clear from the definition of multiplication that, if we
have to multiply a number by 5, we may multiply it separately by
2 and 3, and then add the two results ; the final result will be the
product required : if we have to multiply a number by 23 we may
multiply it separately by 3 and 20, and then add the two results.

14560= 20. 1456
218400= 300. 2184
2395 12 = product by 329. 239512
Here, to obtain the product of 728 by 329, we multiply 728 by 9,
20 and 300 separately, and add the three results. The partial products
are found by the methods explained in the two preceding articles.
In practice we do not annex the zeros in multiplying by 20 and
300 (because they have no effect in the addition which we perform
afterwards) and our work stands as at (B).
OBSERVE that the multiplier must be placed under the multi
plicand as in Addition ; also that, in all cases, the first figure on
the right of each partial product must be placed in the same
vertical column with the figure by which the product is obtained.
Note 1. We may multiply by the figures of the multiplier ID
any order we like, bearing in mind the foregoing observation.

then to annex as many ciphers to the product as have been
omitted.

36. The second^ third) fourth^... power of a number is the
product of two, three^four^.. factors each equal to that number.
Thus the second power of 2 = 2x2=4; the third Rr ^ r of
2 2x2x2 = 8. The second power of a number is r^ed its
square, the third power its cube. The number itseu is often
called \tsjirst power.
The symbol 4* is used to express 4 x 4 ; also, 4* is used to express
4x4x4; and so on. The small figures 2, 3, are called indices or
exponents of the powers.
The process of finding any power of a number is called
involution.

VI. DIVISION.
37. Division is the operation by which we find how ofteuv
one given number, called the Divisor, must be subtracted from
another given number, called the Dividend, so that the Be
mainder, if any, may be less than the first given number.
The number of times the subtraction is performed is called the
Quotient.
It will be found that 7 units can be subtracted from 30 units,
4 times, and that then 2 units out of 30 remain over. Hence, when
30 is divided by 7, 30 is the dividend^ 7 is the divisor, the quotient
is 4 and the remainder is 2.
The sign of division is +. Thus 3047 signifies that 30 is to be
divided by 7, and is read "30 divided by 7" or simply "30 by 7".
The symbol ty is also used to denote the same operation of
division.
38. It follows from the definition of division that
Divisor x Quotient + Remainder Dividend.
When there is no remainder the division is said to be exact.
In this case "division may be explained as the inverse of multiplica
tion, the quotient being the number whose product by the divisor is
the dividend.
39. By division we break up a number (dividend) into equal
parts : if the divisor represents the magnitude of a part, the
quotient gives the number of the parts ; if the divisor represents the
number of the 'parts, the quotient gives the magnitude of one of
the parts,
Example I. 30 oranges are divided among boys so that each
boy gets 7 oranges ; how many boys get a share ? (Ans. 4 boyst
2 oranges remainder.)
DIVISION 27
Example 2. 30 oranges are divided equally among 7 boys ;
how many does each boy get ? (Ans. 4 oranges each, 2 oranges
remainder.)
N. B. The teacher should explain how in both of these cases the
result may be obtained by repeated subtractions.
4O. The division of numbers not greater than 400 by numbers
not greater than 20 is effected by means of the Multiplication Table.
Example. Divide 59 by 7.
Here, we have to find how often 7 may be subtracted from 59*
or in other words, how many times 7 is contained in 59.
We may find the quotient and the remaindel' by successive
subtractions of 7 from 59. But we are saved the trouble of
repeated subtractions by using a known result of the Multiplication
Table. Thus, since 8 times 7 is 56, 5917 gives 8 as quotient and
3 as remainder.

41. When the dividend and divisor are any numbers, the
process of division is as follows :
Example. Divide, 88909 by 24.
The form of the operation is
24 ) 88909 ( 3704 Quotient.
72
169
,168
109
J*
3 Remainder.
The explanation is this :
We first take 8, and we find that 24 is not contained in it : we
therefore take 88 and find how often 24 is contained in 88, and as it
is contained three times, we set down 3 as the first figure in the
quotient ; then multiply 24 by 3 and subtract the result 72 from
88 : to the remainder 16 we bring down the next figure in the
dividend ; then, as 24 is contained in 169 seven times, we set down
7 as the second figure in the quotient ; then multiply 24 by* 7 and
subtract the result 168 from 169 i to the remainder I we bring
down the next figure in the dividend ; then, as 24 is not contained in
10 Ve set down as the third figure in the quotient and bring down
9, the next figure in the dividend ; then, as 24 is contained in 109
four times, we set down 4 as the fourth figure in the quotient ; then
multiply 24 by 4 and subtract the result 96 from 109. We thus
obtain 3704 as quotient and 13 as remainder.
N. B. The student will see that in the
above process what we really do is this : from 2 4 ) 88909 ( 3000
the dividend we first subtract 3000 times 24, I^opo
next from the remainder we subtract 700 16909 ( 700
times 24, and then from the second remainder 16800
we subtract 4 times 24; we therefore altogether jf^ ( 4
subtract (3000 + 700+4) or 3704 times 24 from ^5
88909. The form of this extended operation is ~ ^ ~  ^

40. Abbreviated methods of Division.
(1) To divide a number by 10, 100, 1000, , cut off one>
two, three, , figures from the right of the number ; the figures
cut off will give the Remainder and the remaining figures the
Quotient. Thus, when we divide 53274 by 100, the quotient is
532, and the remainder is 74.
(2) To divide by any number ending with ciphers, cut off the
ciphers from the divisor and as many figures from the right of the
dividend ; then divide the remaining figures of the dividend by the
remaining figures of the divisor, and to the remainder annex fhe
figures cut off from the dividend to get the total remainder. Thus f
' if we have to divide 3754 by 700, we divide 37 by 7, which gives
5 as quotient and 2 as remainder ; the total remainder is 254.
(3) To divide a number by 5, 15, 35 or 45, multiply the number
by 2 and divide the result by 10, 30, 70 or 90 (by the above
method) ; divide the remainder by 2 to get the true remainder.
Thus to divide 78 by 5, we multiply 78 by 2, getting 156 as the
result ; this divided by 10 gives 15 as quotient and 6 as remain
der ; the true remainder is 6 ~ 2 or 3. Hence 78 divided by 5 gives
1 5 as quotient and 3 as remainder.
(4) To divide a number by 25 or 75, multiply the number by
4 and divide the result by loo or 300 ; divide the remainder by 4
to get the true remainder.
(5) To divide a number by 125, multiply the number by 8
and divide the result by 1000 ; divide the remainder by 8 to get the
true remainder.

CASTING OUT THE NINES.
51. The following method called "casting out the nines"
(s frequently employed in testing the correctness of the result of
multiplication.
Divide the sum of the digits in the multiplicand by 9 and set
down the remainder ; do the same thing with the multiplier ; mul
tiply the two remainders together^ divide the result by 9, and set
down the remainder j then if the multiplication has been performed
correctly, the last remainder will be the same as the remainder
obtained by dividing the sum of the digits in the product by 9.
Example. 1 86 x 47 * 8742.
The sum of digits in 1 86 = 15; 1579 gives rem. 6 ;
the sum of digits in 47 11; 1179 gives rem. 2 ;
6x2 = 12; 12 49 gives rem. 3.
Sum of digits in 8742 2i ; 2149 gives rem, 3.
N. B. This test will fail if such a mistake has been committed, as
does not affect the 'sum of the digits of the product, or, increases or
.decreases it by 9 or a multiple of 9.

7. 39400 by 3900. 8. 80307 5 by 390. 0. 823794 by 8234.
51s. In a chain of operations of addition and subtraction the
order of the operations is from left to right. Thus 85442
means that 5 is to be subtracted from 8, then 4 is to be added to the
result, and then 2 is to be subtracted from the last result But we
shall get the same result if we subtract the sum of the jiegative
terms from the sum of the positive terms ; and this method is
often more convenient.
MISCELLANEOUS EXAMPLES 37
In a chain of operations of multiplication and division the order
of the operations is from left to right. Thus 24 x 472 means that
24 is to be multiplied by 4, and then the result is to be divided by
2; 244x2 means that 24 is to be divided by 4, and then the
result is to be multiplied by 2 ; and 24472 means that 24 is to
be divided by 4, and then the result is to be divided by 2.
When an expression contains all (or some of) the signs +
x, + , the mMj&iotiw*M&<L>^^

VIII. MEASURES OF MONEY AND REDUCTION.
5. In practice it is found convenient to use large units for
measuring large quantities, and small units for measuring small
quantities. Thus, we say that the price of a table is 20 rupees f
the price of a book is 10 annas ; the price of a toy is 3 pice.
A list of the relative magnitudes of the various units used for
the measurement of quantities of the same kind is called a Table.

The following coins are now in circulation in England :
Copper coins : a farthing, a halfpenny, a penny.
Silver coins : a threepenny piece, a fourpenny piece (or groaf})
a sixpence (or tester}^ a shilling, a florin, a halfcrown, a crown.
Gold coins : a ha'lfsovereign, a sovereign.
The following gold coins are now obsolete but were in circula
tion at various periods in England : a noble (6s. 8</.), an angel
<ioj.), a halfguinea (los. 6dl), a mark or merk (13^. 4^.), a guinea
(21*.), a carolus (235.), a jacobus (25$.), a moidore (27*.).
The standard of gold coin in England is 22 parts of pure gold
and 2 parts of copper, melted together. Each of these 24 parts is
called a carat. Pure gold is said to be 24 carats fine and standard
gold 22 carats fine. From a pound Troy of standard gold there arc
coined 46 J$ sovereigns, or 46. 14*. 6d. The standard of silver
coin is 37 parts of pure silver and 3 parts of copper. From a pound
Troy of standard silver there are coined 66 shillings. In copper coin
age 24 pennies are coined from one pound Avoirdupois of copper.
Gold coinage is the standard in England. Silver coinage is not
a legal tender for more than 40 j., nor is copper coinage for more
than lid.

Silver coins : a twoanna piece, a fouranna piece or quarter*
rupee, an eightanna piece or halfrupee) a rupee.
Gold coins : a gold mohur, a sovereign, a halfsovereign.
The standard of gold or silver coin in India is 1 1 parts of pure
gold or silver and I part of alloy. The weight of a rupee or of a gold

Gold coinage (except the Sovereign) is not a legal tender in
India ; the rupee and halfrupee are legal tender for any amount,
other silver coins and the nickel and copper coins being a legal
tender for the fractions of a rupee only.

REDUCTION.
55. A quantity expressed by means of a single unit is called a
simple quantity. A quantity expressed by means of more than
one unit is called a compound quantity. Thus, B; is a simple
quantity ; 3. 4<z. 3^. is a compound quantity.
Reduction is the process by which we express (i) a simple or
a compound quantity in terms of a lower unit, or (2) a simple
quantity in terms of higher units.

X. COMPOUND SUBTRACTION.
59. The method of subtracting one compound quantity from
another is as follows :
Example. Subtract R7. ga. 6p. from Ri2. 30. qp.
Here we have to find the quantity which
being added to R7. ga. 6p. makes up R. a. p.
Ri2. $a. gp. We see that bp. + Sp.=gp. ; 12 . 3 . 9
we therefore put down 3 under the column 7 . 9 . 6
of pies. Next, ga. + 10a.=i9^.Ri + 3. ; R4 . 10
we put down 10 under the column of annas
and carry* R i for adding to the rupees of the subtrahend ;
Ri (ftiraV?</; + R7 + R4=Ri2 ; and we place 4 under the column
<of rupees.

XI. COMPOUND MULTIPLICATION.
60. Compound Multiplication is a short method of finding
the sum of a certain number of repetitions of a given compound
quantity.
The process is as follows :
Example. Multiply R$. I2a. 4^. by 7, and by 35.
7 times 4^. = 28/5. 20. f 4^. ; set down ^ * &
4 and carry 2. 7 times 120. = 84^., which 5 . 12 . 4
with 20. 0m>*/=86a. = R5f6tf. ; set _ 7
down 6 and carry 5. 7 times Rs = R35 ; 840 .6.4 Ans.
this with RS carried gives 840 ; and
setting down this, the required product is R4O, 60. 4^.
Note. To multiply by 35 we multiply first by 7 and the pro
duct by 5.
EXAMPLES. 25.
Multiply
1. R3. 8a. ^pice by 3, 5, 7. 2. R9. 12*. 6/. by 5, 7, 9.

Here we have a remainder (26^.) after division, and we observe
that if the quotient, 83. 20, i/,, be multiplied by the divisor the
5 ARITHMETIC
product will be less than the dividend by 26p. ; again, if 3. 2a. ip.
be multiplied by the divisor the product will be greater than
the dividend by (31 26)^. or $p. The last therefore is nearest to
the correct result. Hence to the nearest pie the resuk is
RULE. When there is a remainder after division, the quotient
or the quotient increased by ip. is the result correct to the nearest
pie, according as the divisor is greater or less than twice the number
of pies in the remainder. If the divisor is equal to twice that num
ber, both the results are equally correct.

civil year correspond with the solar, we take 3 consecutive years of 365
days and a fourth, called leapyear , of 366 days, those being leapyears of
which the numbers are divisible by 4. But in this way we insert loo days
in 400 years, which is too much, for '242218 x 400 is 96*8872 or 97 days
nearly ; to make the necessary correction centuries not divisible by 400 are
taken as common years.]
Note 4. The year contains 52 weeks and i day (V 52x7 + 1
365)) but in calculating the income of men paid by the week, it
is customary to consider the year to consist of 52 weeks.

(i) Measures of Weight.
Druggists use the grain to weigh small quantities and the
pound and ounce Avoir, to weigh large quantities. Some physi
cians in prescribing use the following table :
20 Grains make i Scruple (i srr.).
3 Scruples ... I Drachm ^i dr.;.
8 Drachms ... I Ounce Troy.
(ii) Measures of Capacity.
60 Minims (m.) or drops make I Fluid Drachm (fl. dr.),

FACTORS AND PRIME NUMBERS
XIX. FACTORS AND PRIME NUMBERS.
88. If one number divides another exactly ', the first is said to
be a factor (or submultiple) of the second, and the second is
said to be a multiple of the first. Thus 5 is a factor of 1 5,
and 15 is a multiple of 5.
In speaking of the factors of a number we exclude the number
one or unity^ which may be said to be a factor of any number.
\N. B. In the present section the word divisible is used in the sense
of exactly divisible."}
89. An even number is a number divisible by 2. An Odd
number is a number not divisible by 2.
90. Criteria of Divisibility :
A number is divisible
by 2 when its last figure is o, or an even digit ; as 310, 54 :
4 when its last two figures represent a number divisible by 4 ;
as 300, 320, 324 :
>8 when its last three figures represent a number divisible by
8 ; as 2000, 3400, 3240, 3816 :
5 when its last figure is o or 5 ; as 370, 345 :
10 when its last figure is o :
3 when the sum of its digits is divisible by 3 ; as 126, 402 :
9 when the sum of its digits is divisible by 9 ; as 477, 801 :
11 when the difference between the sum of its digits in the odd
places and the sum of its digits in the even places is either
o, or divisible by n ; as 34672, 582934.
To determine whether a number is divisible by 7, n, or 13 we
have the following rule :
Divide the figures of the number into groups containing three
each, as far as possible, counting from right to left. Add the
alternate groups, and subtract the smaller sum from the greater ;
then if the remainder is o or is divisible by 7, n, or 13, the number
itself is also divisible by 7, or by II, or by 13.
Thus 98126 is divisible by 7, but not by n or by 13: for
12698*28 which is divisible by 7, but not by n or by 13.
91. If a number is divisible separately by two numbers which
have no common factor, it is also divisible by their product.
If a number is divisible by 3 (or 9), any other number ex
pressed by the same digits is also divisible bv ^ for o).
ARITHMETIC
If each of two numbers is divisible by a third number, their
sum (and difference) is also divisible by the third.
If a number is divisible by another, any multiple of the first is
also divisible by the second.
If each of two numbers is divisible by a third number, then the
sum (and difference) of any multiple of the first and any multiple
of the second is also divisible by the third number.

A compositeTnumber is a number which has factors each
greater than I.
4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, etc. are composite numbers.
93, To ascertain what numbers are primes.
(i) To find the prime numbers in a series of numbers, 1, 2, 3,...,
cancel every second number after 2, every third number after 3i
every fifth number after 5, and so on ; the remaining numbers will
FACTORS AND PRIME NUMBERS
be primes. [In finding the primes in any series of numbers, we
need not divide by any prime number whose square is greater
than the largest number in the series.]
(ii) To determine whether a given number is a prime, divide
the number successively by the primes 2, 3, 5, 7, u, etc. ; if there
is a remainder in each case the given number is a prime. [It is
not necesspry to try a divisor whose square is greater than the
given number.]
Note. From Art. 90 it will appear that the units' figure ol
every prime number (except 2 and 5) must be i, 3, 7 or 9. Hence
any given number (not being 2 or 5) need only be examined when
its units' figure is i, 3, 7 or 9 ; and in such a case we need not try
the divisors 2 and 5.

XX. HIGHEST COMMON FACTOR.
95. A common factor of two or more numbers is a number
which divides each of them exactly.
Thus, each of the numbers 2, 3 and 6, is a common factor of
12 and 1 8.
The Highest Common Factor (H. C. !F.) of two or more
numbers is the highest number which divides each of them exactly.
Thus, 6 is the H. C. F. of 12 and 18.
Note. Two numbers are said to be prime to each other wheir
they have no common factor.
M B. The term measure is often used as synonymous with/ac/of,
and Greatest Common Measure instead of fcfrto* common factor.
HIGHEST COMMON FACTOR 8 1
9& The H. C. F. of two or more numbers is (he product of
all their common prime factors.
Example i. Find the H. C. F. of 18 and 30.
i82X3*X3 ; 302x3x5.
The factors common to the two numbers are 2 and 3 ; hence
the H. C. F. required 2X 3 6.
Note. In finding the H. C. F. it is not necessary to find the
prime factors of all the numbers. It is sufficient to find the prime
factors of one of the numbers, and to form the product of those
that divide each of the remaining numbers exactly.
Example 2. Find the H. C. F. of 84, 140 and 168.
Now, 84 =2x2x3x7 ; and we find that each of the remaining
numbers is divisible by 2x2x7, but not by 3 ; therefore the
H. C. F. required 2x2x7 = 28.

97. The following rule gives the most convenient method of
finding the H. C. F. of two numbers :
Divide the greater number by the less, the divisor by the re
mainder, then the second divisor by the second remainder, and so on,
until there is no remainder ; the last divisor is the H. C. F. required.

XXI. LOWEST COMMON MULTIPLE.
08. A common multiple of two or more numbers is a
number which is exactly divisible by each of them.
The Lowest Common Multiple (L. C. M.) of two or more
numbers is the lowest number which is exactly divisible by e'ach of
them.
Thus, each of the numbers 12, 24 and 36, is a common multiple
of 3, 4 and 6 ; but 12 is their lowest common multiple.
00. The product of two numbers is equal to the product of
their /f. C. F. and L. C. M. Thus, 2 is the H. C. F. and 12 is the
L. C. M. of 4 and 6 ; and 4x6=2 x 12.
Hence we have the following rule for finding the L. C. M, of
two numbers :
Divide one of the numbers by the //. C. F. and multiply the
quotient thus obtained by the other.
Example. Find the L. C. M. of 38 and 57.
The H. C. F. of 38 and 57 = 19 ; 38~i92.
.'. The L. C. M. required = 2 x 57 114.
Note. When the L. C. M. of three or more numbers is
required, we find the L. C. M. of any two of the numbers, and then
find the L. C. M. of this result and a third number, and so on ; the
last result being the L. C. M. required.

21. The H. C. F. and L. C. M. of two numbers are 10 and
30030 respectively ; one of the numbers is 770 : what is the other ?
10O. The following rule gives the most convenient method of
finding the L. C. M. of several small numbers :
Place the numbers side by side in a line ; divide by any one of
the prime numbers 2, 3, 5, 7, n, which will divide any two at
least of the given numbers exactly ; set down the quotients thus
obtained and the undivided numbers side by side ; and proceed in.
this way until you get a line of numbers which are prime to one
another. The continued product of all the divisors and the num
bers in the last line will be the L. C. M. required.
Example I. Find the L. C. M. of 12, 18, 20 and 105.
Process : 2 ) 12, 18,20, 105

Note. Work may be shortened by rejecting, at any stage,
from the line^ any one of the numbers, which is a factor of any
other number in the same line.
Thus, if it is required to find the L. C. M. of 6, 12, 15, 30 and
4o> it will be sufficient to find the L. C. M. of 12, 30 andjo.

XXII. FRACTIONS.
101. When a quantity is composed solely of entire units, its
measure is called a whole number or an integer.
[In sections II XXI the word number has been used in the
sense of a whole numberl\
When a quantity is composed of one or more equal parts of the
anit its measure is called a fractional number or a fraction.
Example. Twothirds is a fraction ; for twothirds of the unit
Indicates a quantity which is composed of two equal parts, three of
which make up the unit.
102. The number of equal parts, into which the unit is divided,
Is called the denominator of the fraction ; and the number of
such parts taken to make up the quantity is called the numer
ator of the fraction. The numerator and denominator are called
terms of the fraction.
A fraction is represented by writing the numerator above the
denominator, with a horizontal line between them.
Thus, $ represents the fraction of which the numerator is 4, and
the denominator is 7.
Such symbols are called Fractionsymbols or Fractions.
Note 1. The symbol \ is read onehalf \ \ is read onethird \
 is read twothirds ; J is read onefourth ; is read threefourths ;
and so on.
A fraction expressed in the above notation is called a Vulgar
Fraction.
Example. * of a yard* indicates a quantity which is composed
of two equal parts, three of which make up one yard ; that is, '} of
a yard' 2 feet.
Note 2, We should get the same result whether we divide a
yard (or any other unit) into 3 equal parts and take 2 such parts,
or divide 2 yards (or twice that other unit) into 3 equal parts and
FRACTIONS 87
take one of these parts. A fraction may thus be considered to ex
press the quotient of the numerator by the denominator. Hence \ is
often read '2 divided by 3.'

1O3. If the numerator and denominator of a fraction are each
multiplied by the same number, the value of the fraction is not
altered.
For, consider the fractions $ and  : the first indicates that the
unit is divided into 3 equal parts and 2 of these parts are taken ;
the second indicates that the unit is divided into 36 equal parts and
14 of these parts are taken. Now, a part in the former case is
obviously equal to 12 parts in the latter case : consequently 2 parts
(taken) in the former case 24 parts (taken) in the latter case.
Illustration : % of a yard 2 ft. ; and of a yard =24 in.=*2 ft,
Corollary. If the numerator and denominator of a fraction are
each divided by the same number, the value of the fraction is not
altered.
104. A whole number may be expressed as a fraction with any
given denominator.
Thus for example, 3 } \ \ J = et c.
105. A given fraction can be transformed into another fraction
of which the denominator is any multiple of the given denominator.
Example. Transform f into a fraction with the denominator 12.

6. Find fractions equal to J, f , , ft, J&, having 90 for their
denominator.
6. Transform ,%, jf and $ into equivalent fractions whose
denominators shall be n, 5 and 10 respectively.
7. Express f f , g, J and JJ> each as a fraction with the
denominator 6.
IO6. A fraction is said to be in its lowest terms when its
numerator and denominator have no common factor.
Example i. Reduce ff g to its lowest terms.
We divide the numerator and denominator by their H. C. F,
which is 210.
Thus iigH8$H8l **
Note. In reducing a fraction to its lowest terms, it is con
venient first to remove any factors common to both numerator and
denominator, that can be found by inspection or by the application
of the tests of divisibility (Art. 90).
Example 2. Reduce Jf to its lowest terms.

107. A mixerf number is composed of a whole number and
a fraction, as 3. This stands for 3+f, and is read VAr
twofifths.'
A mixed number can be expressed as a fraction.
Example, Express 4$ as a fraction.
For, 12 thirds of the unit and 2 thirds of the unit make (12 + 3]
or 14 thirds of the unit.
Hence the rule : Multiply the whole number by the denomi
nator of the fractional part ; add the result to the numerator of
that part for the new numerator, and retain the same denominator,

An improper fraction is one, of which the numerator is equal
to or greater than the denominator, as , .
An improper fraction is either equal to an integer or a mixed
number.

the denominator by the whole number, leaving the numerator

Thus f 55 #$* ft : for, a part of the unit in ft is onefifth
of a part in $, and since the same number of parts is taken in both
cases, ft is onefifth of f .

118. The definition of multiplication which we have given in
Art. 29 implies that the multiplier is a whole number, and it is not
applicable when the multiplier is a fraction. We therefore give
below the general definition of multiplication.
Def. To multiply one given number by another is to perform
upon the number multiplied that operation which is performed
upon unity to obtain the multiplier.
Since I is repeated three times to obtain the number 3, to
multiply a number by 3 is to repeat that number three times.
Again, since I is divided into 3 equal parts and two of these
parts are taken to obtain the number f , to multiply a number by
is to divide that number into three equal parts and take two of
these parts ; that is; to multiply a number by $ we have to divide
the number by 3 and multiply the result by 2.
Example. Multiply f by $.
Since ^ 7 = g  T ; and Tf T X2=? ;
/. *xH = & Ans.
Hence the rule : To multiply one fraction by another, multiply
the numerators for the numerator of the product, and multiply the
denominators for its denominator.
[N. B. This rule holds good for the continued product of three or
more fractions.]
Note. Hence it is clear that J x #=$ x f .
119. A compound fraction is a fraction of a fraction ; as
I off
The compound fraction, of $, means that we are to divide 
(regarded as a whole) into 3 equal parts and take 2 of these parts,
Hence \ of is equivalent to x , *>., to x f.
Example. Simplify 3} of 9f .
3} of 9ltfx9lxy
M B. Before effecting the multiplication, common factors should be
removed from the numerator and denominator.

1/81. Division by a fraction is the inverse of multiplication.
To divide by  is to find that number which being multiplied
by \ gives as the product. But x being multiplied by f gives
f as the product (V xf=i) ; therefore f rf = xf ; and hence

When an expression is enclosed in a bracket ( ), { }
or [ 1 or placed under a vinculum , the whole expression
Is affected by the sign that precedes or follows the bracket or
vinculum.
Thus,
2K3+4) means that 2 is to be divided by the sum of 3 and 4.
(2 + 3) x 4 means that the sum of 2 and 3 is to be multiplied by 4.
i3(3f*5) means that the sum of 3 and 5 is to be subtracted
from 13.
7 ~(34 4 2) means that the difference between 4 and 2 is to
be added to 3, and the result to be subtracted from 7.
Hence to simplify an expression like the above, we are to
perform the operations indicated inside the brackets before per
forming operations indicated outside the brackets.
Note. In a product the sign of multiplication is often omitted
when one or more of the factors are enclosed in brackets.
Thus, 3(54) means 3* (5 4) 5
(3 + 2)(4  2) means (3 + 2) x (4  2 )
A bracket may be removed if it is preceded by the
sign + : thus 84(7542)8+7 542.
A bracket preceded by the sign may also be removed if the
sign of every term within the bracket is changed, namely + to

XXV. DECIMALS.
I3. In the ordinary system of notation the value of a figure
decreases tenfold at each step of removal from left to right ; thus,
if a certain figure represents hundreds, the next figure to the right
will represent tens ; and the next units. If by a natural extension
of this system of notation we place figures to the right of the units'
figure, the figure immediately to the right of it will represent
tenths, the next figure will represent hundredths, the next thou
sandths, and so on. Thus
13
The number indicated is "twentyone and two tenths, three
hurtdredtns, four thousandths, five tenthousandths."
But in such a system of notation it is necessary to indicate
clearly the position of the units' figure ; and it has been agreed
that the figure to whose right a point ( ' ), called the decimal
point, is placed shall be the units' figure ; and to distinguish this
point from tlie one used as the sign of multiplication, it is placed
towards the top of the figure.
Thus 74*256 represents 74 units, 2 tenths, 5 hundredths, and 6
thousandths ; and is read "seventyfour decimal, two ,five, six."
74*056 represents 74 units, no tenths, 5 hundredths, and 6
thousandths ; and is read "seventyfour decimal, zero, five, six."
0*205 or "205 represents no units, 2 tenths, no hundredths, and
$ thousandths ; and is read "decimal, two, zero, five."
133. A number expressed in the above notation is called a
decimal or a decimal fraction. The part to the left of the
point i s called the integral part, and the part to the right is*
called the decimal part of the given number.
DECIMALS 1 17
Note. Such numbers are called decimal fractions because each
figure to the right of the decimal point represents a fraction which
has some power of 10 as its denominator : thus 2*34 = 2 + ^+ ^$5.
134. The value of a decimal is not altered by annexing
ciphers to the right of the last figure j thus, 2*3 5 = 2*3 50= 2*3500 ;
for, these ciphers do not alter the position of any of th$ othei
figures relatively to the decimal point.
Note. An integer may be expressed as a decimal by writing
ciphers in the decimal part ; thus I2 = i2'oo.
But the value of the decimal part of a number decreases ten
fold, a hundredfold, , as we place one, two, , zeros imme
diately to the right of the decimal point.
Thus *i is onetenth ;
*oi is onehundredth ;
ooi is onethousandth ;
and so on.
135. It will be observed that a decimal is multiplied by 10,
loo, loop, , by removing the decimal point I, 2, 3, ....... places
to the right ; and conversely, a decimal is divided by 10, 100, IOOC
, by removing the point i, 2, 3, , places to the left,
Thus 20*31 = 2*031 x 10
203'I~IO.

130. To convert a decimal into the equivalent vulgar fraction.
Example. Express 71 and 2*017 as vulgar fractions.
By the preceding Art., we have,
(i) 71=71^100==^;
(ii)
or,:
Hence the rule : Write down the given number suppressing
the decimal point for the numerator, and for the denominator write
I followed by as many zeros as there are figures in the decimal part.
137. To convert a vulgar fraction having some power of 10 as
Its denominator, into tl*e equivalent decimal.
Example. Express j$, ^j% and ^J$o as decimals.
(i) ft =12 5 10 =I'2.
(ii) ^j=I24IOO = *I2.
(i) liJfo" 1241000= 012.
Hence the rule : Take the numerator and in it place the decimal
point after as many figures (counting from the right) as there are
zeros in the denominator. If the number of figures in the numerator
be less than the number of zeros in the denominator prefix in the
numerator the requisite number of zeros.

141. Multiplication of Decimals.
If we take any two decimals, convert them into vulgar fractions
and multiply these latter together, we find that the numerator of
DECIMALS
the product is the product of the two given decimals with their
decimal points suppressed, and that the denominator is i followed
by as many ciphers as there are decimal places in the two given
numbers ; and if now the product be reduced back to the equiva
lent decimal, it will contain as many decimal places as there are
ciphers in the denominator. Hence we have the following rule for
the Multiplication of Decimals :
Multiply the given numbers as if they were integers, and mark
off in the product a number of decimal places equal to the sum of
the numbers of decimal places in the two factors. If the number
of figures in the product be less than the number of decimal places
in the two factors, prefix the requisite number of ciphers.

Here we divide as in the case of whole numbers, taking ^care to
place the decimal point in the quotient as soon as the division of
the integral part is finished.
If there is a remainder (as in the above case) after division, we
affix a zero to the remainder, and divide. We treat all successive
remainders in the same manner, and continue the division until
the required number of decimal places in the quotient is obtained,
or until there is no remainder.
Note. The method of short division may be employed with
advantage when the divisor does not exceed 20, or when the divisor
can be expressed as the product of factors each less than 20,
Example 2. Obtain the quotient to five places of decimals in
the division of "025 by 7.

II. When the Divisor is a decimal :
Remove the decimal point in both the Divisor and Dividend as
many places to the right as will make the divisor a whole number ;
and then divide as in the preceding case.
Note. Observe that removing the decimal point in the divisor
and dividend an equal number of places to the right is equivalent
to multiplying the divisor and dividend by the same number ; and
that if the divisor and dividend be both multiplied by the same
number the quotient is not altered.

XXVI. RECURRING DECIMALS.
145. In the process of reduction of vulgar fractions to decimals?,
It will be found, in some cases, that the division does not terminate ;
so that the quotient can be continued without limit.
Example. Reduce \\ to a decimal.
55 )19;
3454545
146. We can tell beforehand whether, in any particular case f
the division will terminate or not.
Let the fraction be in its lowest terms ; then if the prime
factors of the denominator are each of them either 2 or 5, the
division will terminate ; and not otherwise.
Thus
(i) Afews) will produce a terminating decimal.
(ii) /^(sxSys) will produce a nontorminating decimal.
126 ARITHMETIC
EXAMPLES. 93.
State, in each case, whether the equivalent decimal is terminat
ing or nonterminating :
1. J. 2. }. 3. I 4. ?}. 5. 5f.
6. 2*8. 7. !%. 8. M. 9. to 10. f
1L 3*1 12. A. 13. 7i 14. ft. 15. ntf.
16. Write down those numbers between I and 20, which being
denominators of fractions in their lowest terms, will produce non
terminating decimals.
147. In nonterminating decimals, certain digits must recur
over and over again.
Consider the fraction J. In the process of division the only
remainders possible are i, 2, 3, 4, 5 ; consequently, after five steps
at most, we must come to a remainder which has occurred before,
and therefore from that point we must have a recurrence of the
remainders, and therefore of the digits in the quotient,
Example I . \  '6666666 . . .
Example 2. \\= 3454545...
Note. It may be noticed here that division by 3 or 9 gives
a period (See Art. 148) of one digit ; division by II, a period of
two digits ; division by 7 or 13, a period of six digits.
148. Decimals in which certain digits recur are called recur
ring decimals.
Note. A recurring decimal is also called a periodic, re
peating or circulating decimal.
The whole body of digits which recur is called the period.
Thus, in '6666... the period is 6 ; in '3454545... the period is 45.
149. In writing a recurring decimal we usually stop at the end
of the first period and place dots over its first and last digits.
Thus '666666 is written ' ;
373737 "37 '>
'3454545 '345 ;
34576576 34S7&
A pure recurring decimal is one in which the Jjeriod com
mences immediately after the decimal point ; as, '& '37.
A mixed recurring decimal is one in which one or more
figures precede the period ; as, '345, *
RECURRING DECIMALS 127
Note. It may be noticed that decimals
equivalent to fractions with denominator 7 are
all pure recurring decimals, all of which contain
the same digits 142857. If these digits be ar
ranged in a circle, as in the annexed diagram, we
may obtain the decimals equivalent respectively
to ^, $, $, $, %, , by beginning in turn with I, 2, 4,
5, 7, 8, and reading off the remaining digits /n
order in the direction of the arrowheads.
Thus ^"'142857 ; *=*2857i4 ; $'=428571 ; and so on.
EXAMPLES. 94.
Express each of the following as a recurring decimal :
1. *. 2. f 3. f 4. I 5. If.

*oon 1*1 2*3 "07
49. 3+4 60. 4 i. 61. 2. 62. '^.
13 "007 4i Si
150. In a given recurring decimal, the period may be sup
posed to begin at any point after the first repeating figure.
Thus '3272727...  '327 "3272 = '32727 etc.
Again, the number of figures in the period of a recurring
decimal may be doubled^ trel>ted,...vrithout altering the value of
the decimal.
Thus '3i7 '32727 3272727 = etc.
151. Recurring decimals are said to be similar when they
have the same number of nonrecurring figures, and also the same
128 ARITHMETIC
number of recurring figures. Thus '3 and *<5 are similar recurring
decimals ; '327 and 2*4^ are similar.
152. Two or more given recurring decimals can always be
made similar.
Take the recurring decimals 2*3, '24$ and '25768.
Now the highest mimber of nonrecurring decimal places in any
of these numbers is 2 ; and the numbers of figures in the periods
respectively are i, 2, 3, the L. C. M. of which is 6. Therefore the
given recurring decimals may be made similar by extending each
of them to eight places of decimals, the first two places being non
recurring and the last six places being recurring.
Thus 23 233333333 ;
24^ =* 24545454 ;
25768 = '25768768.
EXAMPLES. 95.
In each of the following recurring decimals begin the period at
the fourth decimal place :
L '2345. 2. '347(5. 3. '67. 4. '2345.
5. '00123. 6. 12345. ^ 7. 1234. 8. '123456.
9. Extend '34, '34 and '2^78 so that they may have the same
number of figures in the period.
1O. Extend '162, '1234 and '3765 so that they may have the
same number of recurring figures.
Make the following sets of recurring decimals similar :
11 *2$, 7. 12. '345, 7<5, 72.
13. '307, 76*. 14. '07^, 7, '006123.

19. 3*402, 7823, 31. 20. 423, 72, '1203.
153. To express a recurring decimal as a vulgar fraction
Example i. 5 '55555...
Now f 10 times  = 5*5555...
and $ = 5555...
Subtracting, 9 times '$ = 5 ;
.'. 51.
RECURRING DECIMALS I2Q
Example 2. "2345 '23454545
Now, 10000 times 2345
and 100 times '2345= 23*4545. .
Subtracting, 9900 times 2345 = 2345 23 ;
Example 3. 3*62 3*622222. . .
New, 100 times 3*62 = 362*2222...
and 10 times 3*62= 36*2221...
Subtracting, 90 times 3*62 = 36236 ;
154. Hence we deduce the following rule for reducing a
recurring decimal to a vulgar fraction :
For the numerator take the integral number formed by all the
figures up to the end of the first period, subtracting the integral
number formed by the figures (if any) that precede the first period ;
for the denominator take the number formed by as many nines as
there are figures in the period f followed by as many ciphers as
there are figures between the decimal point and the first period.
Example I. Find the vulgar fraction equivalent to *3.
Process : *3 = $ = J. Ans.
Example 2. Reduce "45 to a vulgar fraction.
Process: '45 = Ji fir i = sJ. Ans.
Example 3. Express *O476* as a vulgar fraction.

Example 4. Express '00271 as a vulgar fraction.

Example 5. Express 2*37 as an improper fraction.
Process : 2 *37 = *Ho aa =W= 1 A 7 . Ans.
Example 6. Express 2*37 as a mixed number."
Process : 2*372 + *37 = 2 + % = 2 + H = 2jJ. Ans.
Note. It follows from the rule that *9=*J=*i ; similarly
'O9'i and '009= *oi ; and therefore 2*9=3, 2 '39 2*4, 2*3459
p2'346 ; etc. Also '99=1, '999= *> "299 = '3 ; etc.
Therefore when the recurring part contains the figure 9 only>
the recurring part should be omitted and the preceding figure
Increased by unity.

XXVIII. APPROXIMATION.
16O. It is often inconvenient, and not always possible, to find
an exact decimal equivalent to a proposed number. In such cases
we may proceed to a few places of decimals and indicate by dots (...)
that the work has not terminated. Thus \\ '95652... If however
we wish to approximate to the result by terminating our work at
any specified place, we should increase the last digit retained by I if
the first digit rejected be 5 or greater than 5. Thus Jf =*'957 correct
to three places of decimals or to the nearest thousandth ; also
 '956 5 to four places.
Note 1. It will be easily seen that the difference of '957
and '95652... is less than the difference of "95652... and '956 ; hence
'957 represents '95652... more accurately than '956. It may be
noticed that the approximate result is less than the actual
result when the first figure rejected is less than 5, but greater when
not less.
140 ARITHMETIC
Note 2. Suppose that '36 is given as correct to two places
of decimals. This has been obtained from the true value of the
decimal by the addition or subtraction of a decimal which may be
as great as '005 but not greater. Therefore the error in taking
36 for the decimal lies between + '005 and '005, that is, the
error is not greater than +'005 and not less than '005. The
actual error may be anything between +'005 and '005. Hence
the Limits of Error of a decimal correct to two places are
"005. Similarly, the Limits of Error of a decimal correct
to three places are '0005. And so on.
Note 3. Sometimes approximate results are expressed true
to a certain number of Significant Figures. Thus, 346271
correct to 5 significant figures = 346270, and correct to 4 significant
figures = 3463:0 ; 7*9284 correct to 4 significant figures = 7*928,
correct to 3 significant figures ==7*93, correct to 2 significant figures
7*9, and correct to I significant figure = 8 ; 4*00923 correct to
4 significant figures = 4*009, correct to 3 significant figures=4*oi,
and correct to 2 significant figures = 4*0 or 4 ; "005293 correct to
3 significant figures = '00529, correct to 2 significant figures = '0053$
and correct to i significant figure = '005.

CONTRACTED DIVISION.
162 a. The following rule will shorten the process in division
when the quotient is required to be correct only to a certain
number of decimal places.
Make the divisor a whole number ; and determine by inspection
(or by taking one step in the ordinary way), how many figures
there will be in the integral part of the quotient. In the divisor
retain (from the left) as many figures as there are to be in the whole
quotient integral part as well as decimal ; and strike off the rest.
Proceed one step with this new divisor, but to the product of its
first figure by the quotientfigure, carry the nearest ten from the
preceding figure. Instead of bringing down a figure to the remain
der, strike off another figure from the divisor, and proceed as be
fore, until no figure is left in the divisor.
If the number of figures in the divisor be less than the number
of quotientfigures to be obtained, proceed in the ordinary way
until the number of quotientfigures still to be obtained is one less
than the number of figures in the divisor. As soon as this happens,
instead of bringing down a figure to the remainder, strike off a
figure from the end of the divisor, and then proceed as in the
preceding case.
When, by inspection, it ia found that there is no integral part
of the quotient and there are ciphers just alter the decimal point
in tbe quotient, subtract the number of ciphers from the total
number or decimal places required, and take the remainder as the
number of decimal places required in the quotient. Then proceed:
as above.

162b, When an approximate decimal is multiplied by a number
less than unity or divided by a number greater than unity, the error
is obviously diminished in the result. This principle is made use
of in the following examples.
Example i. Find the continued (product of 127053, "003725
and 4*532 correct to 3 places of decimals.
Take for the multiplicand 127053 which contains the largest
number of significant figures. In the second multiplier, 4'532,
shift the decimal point one place to the left so that the first
significant figure may stand in the first decimal place and the
multiplier becomes less than unity ; and make the compensating
change in the multiplicand by shifting the decimal point one place
to the rihght. Thus we have to find the product,
127 053 x 003725 x 4532.

163. An aliquot part of a quantity is a quantity which can
be expressed as a fraction of that quantity, having unity for its
numerator.
Thus 40., being J of Ri, is an aliquot part of Ri ; 2s. 6</., which
is i of *> is an aliquot part of i.
164. Simple Practice is a convenient method of finding,
by means of aliquot parts, the cost of a simple quantity, when the
cost is given of the unitquantity, in terms of which the simple
quantity is expressed.
Example. Find the value of 32 cwt. of wheat at 83. 8a. per cwt.
Compound Practice is a convenient method of finding, by
means of aliquot parts, the cost of a compound quantity, when the
cost is given of one of the units, in terms of which the compound
quantity is expressed.
Example. Find the value of 7 cwt. 3 qr. of wheat at 83. 8a.

XXX. SQUARE ROOT.
I6T. A number is called the square root of its square. Thus
2 is the square root of 4 ; 3 is the square root of 9.
The square root of a number is indicated by the symbol *J placed
before it. Thus ^4 indicates the square root 0/4, that is, 2.
108. A number whose square root can be expressed exactly
either by a whole number or by a fraction is called a perfect
square.
Note. It may be noticed that, no number, integral or decimal,.
which ends with 2, or 3, or 7, or 8, is a perfect square.
169. When the square root of a whole number which is a
perfect square does not exceed 20, we obtain it from the multipli
cation table. Thus from the table we know that the square root
of 81 is 9 ; of 169 is 13. We have, however, a rule by which we
can find the square root of any number consisting of more than
two figures.
1TO. We observe that the square root of 100 is 10, of 10,000
is 100, of 1,000,000 is 1,000 ; and so on. Hence it follows that the
square roots of numbers less than 100 consist of only one figure in
their integral parts ; of numbers between 100 and 10,000, of >two
figures in their integral parts ; of numbers between 10,000 and
1,000,000, of three figures in their integral parts; and so on. If
then a point be placed over every second figure in any number be
ginning with the unite the number of points will be the same as the
number of figures in the integral part of the square root. Thus the
square root of 3136 consists of two figures in its integral part ; the
square root of 15625; consists of three figures in its integral part.
SQUARE ROOT 155
171. Now suppose we have to extract the square root of 3136.
We first divide the number into periods of 3*3 ( 56
two figures each, by placing dots over every ?J _
second figure beginning with the units.* 106 ) 636
636
We then find the greatest number (5) whose square is contained
in the first period ; this is the first figure of the root ; then subtract
its square (25) from the first period and to the remainder (6) bring
down the second period, thus getting 636 for the new dividend.
Next, we divide this number omitting the last figure, by twice the
part of the root already found (i.e., we divide 63 by 10), and annex
the quotient (6) to the root and also to the trial divisor (10) ; then
multiply the divisor as it now stands (106) by the figure of the root
last found. Now, subtracting this product from 636, we have no
remainder ; and we conclude that 56 is the square root of 3136.
If there be more periods to be brought down, I 5^ 2 5 ( I 2 5
the above operation must be repeated, as in the \ ____ _
annexed example. 22 ) 56
44
245 ) 1225
1225
Here, after two figures in the root have been obtained, the re
mainder is 12 ; to this we bring down the third period, thus getting
1225 as the last dividend. We divide this number, last figure
omitted, by twice the part of the root already found (*>., we divide
122 by 24), getting 5 as the quotient. We then annex 5 to the root
and also to the trial divisor 24 : etc.
In obtaining the second figure of the root by division we
sometimes get a quotient which is too large. In such a case we
find the rootfigure by trial, as in the two following examples.
(i) 225(15 Here, dividing 12 by 2, the quotient is 6.
i Taking 6 as the required figure we find that
2 r j ^2! the product (26x6) is greater than 125. We
I2 c then ta ke 5 which is found to be the required
rootfigure.
(ii) 36i (19
i_ Here, division gives 13 which is obviously
29 ) 261 inadmissible. By trial we find 9 to be the
2^ x required rootfigure.
* N. B. Each period consists of the figure over which a dot is placed
and the figure to its left. Here the first period is 31 and second 36. The
fint period may consist of only one figure. v "*
I 5 6
ARITHMETIC
173. When the trial divisor is greater than the number to be
divided by it (or when the quotient is I but found too large) we
set down o in the root, annex o to the divisor, bring down the
next period, and proceed in the usual way. The two following
examples are given for illustration.

174. In the process of extracting the square root, a remainder
is often left, which is greater than the divisor. In the following
example the second remainder 35 is greater than the divisor 29.

176. To find the square root of a Decimal Fraction.
To find the square root of a decimal fraction we proceed as in
the case of a whole number. In pointing) the first point mus v be
1 58 ARITHMETIC
place4 pr supposed to be placed on the units' figure. In the root
the decimal point must be placed immediately after the rootfigures
corresponding to the integral part of the number.
We observe that if any decimal be squared there will be an
even number of decimal places in the result. Consequently a deci
mal fraction (in its simplest form) to be a perfect square must have
an even number of decimal places, and the number of decimal
places in the root must be onehalf of the number in the square.
If the given decimal is not a perfect square (which is always
the case when the decimal in its simplest form contains an odd
number of decimal places) the square root will be a nonterminat
ing decimal ; and we can find the square root to any number of
decimal places we like.
In finding the square root of a decimal, the number of decimal
places in it must be made even> by annexing ciphers, if necessary.

XXXI. CUBE ROOT.
179. A number is called the cube root of its cube. Thus 2
is the cube root of 8 ; 3 is the cube root of 27.
The cube root of a number is indicated by the symbol V placed
before it. Thus V& indicates the cube root 0/8, i.e.) 2.
A number whose cube root can be expressed exactly either by a
whole number or by a fraction is called a perfect cube.
The cubes of i, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,
are respectively i, 8, 27, 64, 125, 216, 343, 512, 729.
[These results should be committed to memory.]
ISO. The method of finding the cube root of a number is as
follows :
Example I. Find the cube root of 13824.
13824 (24 Ans.
8
2 2 X 300= 1200
2x30x4=* 240
16
1456
5824
5824
We divide the number into periods of 3 figures each, the number
of dots indicating the number of figures in the cube root.
We find that 2 is the highest number whose cube is less than
the first period ; this then is the first figure of the root. We sub
tract the cube of 2 from the first period and to the remainder we
bring down the second period.
Next, we multiply the square of 2 (the first figure of the cube
root) by 300 and set down the product 1200 ; this is the trial divisor.
Dividing 5824 by this, the quotient is 4 5 this *s the second figure
of the root. Now we multiply the fir$t figure of the cube root by
30 and this product by the second figure of the root, and set down
C, A, II
l62
ARITHMETIC
the result under the trial divisor ; then set down under this the
square of the second figure of the cube root. Adding these three
we get 1456 as our divisor. We then multiply this by the second
figure of the root and subtracting the product from 5824 we find
that there is no remainder. Therefore we conclude that 24 is the
cube root of 13824.
If the cube root contains three or more figures the above
process must be repeated.

181. A decimal fraction (in its simplest form) to be a perfect
cube must have 3, 6, 9,... decimal places ; that is, the number of
decimal places in it must be some multiple of 3. If the number
of decimal places be not a multiple of 3, the cube root can be
obtained to any number of decimal places we like. In extracting
the cube root of a decimal, the number of decimal places must be
\ade a multiple of 3 by annexing ciphers, if necessary.

XXXII. MEASUREMENT OF AREA.
184. In Arithmetic we consider the areas of rectangles only.
Example. The floor, the ceiling and each wall of an ordinary
room ; a sheet of paper ; each side of an ordinary box or brick ;
all these are rectangular surfaces.
The length and breadth of a rectangle are called its dimensions.
185. The unit Of area is a square whose side is the unit of
length.
Area or Surface is measured by the number of units of area
which it contains ; just as a length is measured by the number of
units of length which it contains.
180. To find the area of a rectangle.
L& A BCD be a rectangle, of
which the length AB is i yd. 2 ft.,
and the breadth A D is 3 ft. Then,
if the unit of length be a foot, the
measure of AB is 5 and of AD is 3.
Divide AB and AD into 5 and 3 equal parts respectively, and
through the points of division draw lines parallel to AD y AB
respectively. Then the rectangle A BCD is divided into 5x3 equal
squares, the side of each of which is a foot in length.
Now, each of these squares is the unit of area ; therefore the
measure of the area ABCD (which is the same as the number of
these squares) is 5 x 3 or 1 5.
.'. Area of ABCD**i$ sq. ft.
And generally, is any rectangle,
measure of area measure of length x measure of breadth ;,
or, more briefly,
area length x breadth.
Whence,
length area 5 breadth ;
breadth area ~ length.
MEASUREMENT OF AREA

Note. A square foot is a square whose side is a foot. Note
the difference between "3 square feet" and "3 feet square."
Three square feet denotes an area 3 times as large as a square
foot ; three feet square denotes the area of a square whose side is
3 feet.

190. In Arithmetic we consider the volumes of rectangular
0lids only.
Example. A rectangular box, a brick, are rectangular solids.
The length, breadth and thickness (or height or depth) of ft
rectangular solid are called its dimensions.
191. The unit of volume is a cube each of venose edges Is
the unit of length.
Volume or cubic content is measured by the number of
units of volume which it contains.

Let the annexed
figure represent a rect
angular parallelepiped,
of which the length
AB is 4 ft., breadth BC
is 3 ft. and thickness
AD is 2 ft. Divide AB
BC, AD respectively
into 4, 3 and 2 equal
parts, and through the
points of division draw
planes parallel to the
sides. Then the solid
X
/
B
will be divided into a number of equal blocks, each of which is a
cubic foot ; and since there are two layers, in each of which there
are 4x3 blocks, we see that there are 4x3x2 blocks altogether}
and the solid therefore contains 4x3x2 cubic feet.

XXXIV. DUODECIMALS.
103. Duodecimals or Cross Multiplication is a method
(similar to that of Art. 189) of finding areas and volumes, made
use of by painters, bricklayers, etc., in measuring work.
In duodecimals, the successive linear units are named and
counted as follows :
I foot 12 primes; I prime = 12 seconds ; i second = 12 thirds ; etc
Note. A prime an inch. A second is often called a part.
The successive superficial and solid units are named and counted'
exactly in the same way as the linear units : Thus,
I superficial foot 12 superficial primes; I supl. prime 12 supU
seconds ; etc.
I solid foot =12 solid primes ; I solid prime ~ 12 solid seconds ; etc*
Primes, seconds, thirds, etc., are indicated by the accent (%
("), ('"), etc., respectively.
The whole of the above statement may be briefly put thus :
i linear foot \
i square foot f =i2' = i44"=*i728 / "20736 lir etc,
i cubic foot J
194. We can easily convert quantities expressed in duodeci mals
to those expressed in feet and inches, and conversely; remembering
that in linear measure the inch is the same as the prime, in square
measure, as the second) and in cubic measure, as the third.
Example I. 2 ft, 3'. 4" 2 ft. 3'A=2 ft. 3$ in.

PROBLEMS CONCERNING TIME AND DISTANCE.
Example i. A passenger train leaves Calcutta at 4 P.M.
and travels at the rate of 20 miles an hour ; the mail train leaves
Calcutta at 9 P.M. and travels, on a parallel line of rails, at the
rate of 30 miles an hour : when and where will the second train
overtake the first ?
The first train has started 5 hours before the second ; and is
therefore (20 X 5) or 100 miles away when the second train starts.
Therefore the second train has to gain 100 miles on the first) at the
rate of 10 (*>,, 3020) miles an hour.
Second train gains 10 miles in I hour on the first,
.* ............................ ico ........... 10 hours ............... ;
.*. the time required is 10 hours after the second train starts ;
and /. the second overtakes the first (30 x 10) or 300 miles from
Calcutta.
Example 2. A hare, pursued by a grayhound, is 30 yards before
him at starting ; whilst the hare takes 4 leaps the dog takes 3 ; in
one leap the hare goes i& yards, and the dog, 2$ yards ; how far
will the hare have gone when she is caught by the hound ?
PROBLEMS CONCERNING TIME AND DISTANCE 199
Whilst the hare runs (4x1$) yd., or 6 yd, the dog runs
(3 x 2\) yd., or 7$ yd. Hence
The dog gains li yd. whilst the hare runs 6 yd.,
.* 3. yd 12 yd.,
.* 30 yd 120 yd. ;
.*. the required distance is 120 yd.
Example 3. A starts from P to walk to Q, a distance of
5i miles, at the rate of 3! miles an hour ; an hour later B starts
from Q for P and walks at the rate of 4^ miles an hour : when
and where will A meet B ?
A has already gone 3! miles when B starts. Of the remaining
48 miles, A walks 3f and B walks 4^ in one hour ; that is, they
together pass over (3f+4i) or 8 miles in one hour. Therefore
48 miles are passed over in ^ or 6 hours. Therefore A meets B
in 6 hours after B started. And therefore they meet at a distance
of 4jx6 or 25$ miles from Q.
Example 4. Two trains, 77 yd. and 99 yd. long respectively!
run at the rates of 25 and 20 miles an hour respectively on parallel
rails in opposite directions : how long do they take to pass each
other ? How long would they take to pass each other if they were
running in the same direction ? How long would a person sitting
in the first train take to pass the other ?
(i) The two trains running in opposite directions will pass each
other in the time in which (77+99) or 176 yards are passed over
at the^rate of (25 + 20) or 45 miles an hour.
Now, 45 miles are passed over in I hour, *
i.e.) 45 x 1760 yd i. I hour,
/. 176 yd aJa hour ;
.". the time required =^3 hr., or 8 seconds.
(ii) When the trains run in the same direction they pass each
other in the time in which (77 + 99) or 176 yards are passed over
at the rate of (2520) or 5 miles an hour. The time required
will be found to be 72 seconds.
(iii) First, when the tr air/5 are running in opposite directions,
a person sitting in the first train will pass the other in the time in
which 99 yd. (i>., the length of the second train) are passed over
at the rate of (25 + 20) or 45 miles an hour. The required time
will be found to be 4$ seconds.
Secondly f when the trains run in the same direction, 99 yd. are
to be passed over at the rate ot (25 20) or 5 miles an hour. The
required time is 40$ seconds.

Example 5. A man rows down a river 18 miles in 4 hours with
the stream, and returns in 12 hours ; find the rate at which he
rows, and the rate at which the stream flows.
He rows 18 miles in 4 hours down the stream ; therefore he
rows ^ or 4^ miles an hour down the stream.
Again, he rows 18 miles in 12 hours up the stream ; therefore
he rows ^f or i miles an hour up the stream.
.*. 4$ miles an hour is the sum of the rate at which the man
rows and the rate at which the stream flows ; and i miles an
hour is their difference. Hence the rates are 3 miles and ij miles

the top of a pole 35 feet high ?
Length of the pole=42o in. Now in 24 hours the snail creeps
up (31 16) in. or 15 in. ; therefore in (24x26) hr. the snail creeps
up (15x26) in. or 390 in.; therefore he has (420 390) in. or
30 in. more to get up. And he goes over 31 in. in 12 hr., and
therefore over 30 in. in **$\^ hr. Therefore he reaches the top in
(24x264^^1^) hr., or in 635jf hours. [The number of days (26)

XXXVII. RATIO AND PROPORTION. *
5508. The ratio of one quantity to another of the same kind
is that which expresses the relative greatness of the first quantity
with respect to the second.
Hence, the ratio of one quantity to another (of the same kind)
is determined by \^\^ fraction whose numerator is the measure of
the first quantity and whose denominator is the measure of the
second quantity, both the quantities being expressed in terms of
the same unit.
Thus, the ratio of 3*. to $s. is determined by the fraction f ; of
2 yd. to 5 ft. by the fraction .
The first of the two quantities forming a ratio is called the
antecedent and the second is called the consequent of the
ratio ; the two together are called the terms of the ratio. The
ratio of 35. to 5* is written 3*. : 5*.
Note. The inverse ratio of 35. to 55. is the ratio of 5^. to 35.
RATIO AND PROPORTION 213
The value of a ratio does not depend upon the nature
of the quantities involved. Thus, the ratios, 2 yd. I 5 yd., 2s. I $.?.,
2 Ib. I 5 lb., are all equal, each of these being determined by the
fraction $. Hence, in investigating the properties of ratios, we
usually consider the terms to be numbers, because numbers
measure quantities of all kinds.
210. The value of a ratio is not altered by multiplying or
dividing both its terms by the same number. Thus the ratios,
2 I 3, 4 I 6, 80 I 1 20, are all equal,
211. Ratios are compounded by taking the product of the
antecedents for a new antecedent and the product of the conse
quents for a new consequent. Thus the ratio compounded of the
ratios, 2 : 3 and 6:7 is 2x6:3x7 or 4 I 7.
1/5. Four quantities are said to be in proportion or pro
portionals when the ratio of the first to the second is equal to
the ratio of the third to the fourth.
Thus 3, 4, 9, 12 are in proportion : since the ratio of 3 to 4 is
equal to the ratio of 9 to 12.
N.B. When four quantities are in proportion, it is not necessary
that all of them should be of the same kind ; it is only necessary that
the first two should be of the same kind, as also the second two.
The existence of proportion among the numbers is denoted
thus :
3 I 49 : 12.
which is read "3 to 4 equals 9 to 12" ;
or thus : 3 I 4 \\ 9 I 12,
which is read "3 is to 4 as 9 is to 12."
Of triis proportion 3 and 12 are called the extremes, and
4 and 9, the means ; 12 is called a fourth, proportional to
3, 4 and 9.
13. When four quantities are in proportion so that
first I second I : third \ fourth ;
then also, second I first I : fourth .* third ;
and fourth \ third II second I first.
Also, if the quantities are all of the same kinds
first '. third '. I second I fourth.
214 ARITHMETIC
214. When four numbers are in proportion, the product of
the extremes is equal to the product of the means.
For example, 3 \ 4=6 * 8, and we have 3x8=34x6*
Hence also, an extreme product of the meansthe othet
extreme ; and, a mean = product of the extremes * the other mean*
15. Three quantities of the same kind are said to be in
continued proportion when the ratio of the first to the second
is equal to the ratio of the second to the third. The second
quantity is called a mean proportional between the first and
third; and the third quantity is called a third proportional to
the first and second.
\
Thus, 2, 4 and 8 are in continued proportion ; for 2 I 4 = 4 I 8 ;
4 is a mean proportional between 2 and 8 ; and 8 is a third pro
portional to 2 and 4.
It is obvious that the square of the mean proportional between
two numbers is equal to their product.
16. Example I. Find a fourth proportional to 3, 9 and 4.
3 ! 94 I number required,
.*. number required *&* 12.
Example 2. Find the number which has the same ratio to 20
that 3 has to 5.

Example 3. Find a mean proportional between 3 and 12.
Square of the number required 3 x 12 36 ;

Example 4. A) B t C, D are quantities of the same kind j and

RULE OF THREE 217
XXXVIII. RULE OF THREE.
Problems which we have solved by the Unitary Method
may also be solved by the method of finding a fourth proportional
to three given quantities,
Example i. Find the price of 12 maunds of sugar, when the
price of 5 maunds is R6o.
Here we observe that if the weight be increased 2, 3... times, the
price will also be increased 2, 3. ..times ; therefore the ratio of the
two weights is equal to the ratio of the two corresponding prices.
Hence 5 md. '. 12 md. I I R6o I the answer ;
/. the
Example 2. If 12 men can do a piece of work in 5 days, in
how many days will 15 men do it ?
Here we observe that if the number of men be increased 2, 3...
times, the number of days will be decreased 2, 3. ..times ; therefore
the inverse ratio of the numbers of men is equal to the ratio of
the corresponding numbers of days.
Hence 15 men ; 12 men II 5 days I the answer ;
.'. the answer *?$* days =*4*days.
18. The above method of solving a problem by finding a
fourth proportional to three given quantities is commonly known
by the name of Rule of Three.
In the first problem we have an example of what is called the
Rule of Three Direct, because there the direct ratio of the two
weights is equal to the ratio of the corresponding prices.
In the second problem we have an example of what is called the
Rule of Three Inverse, because there* the Inverse ratio of the
numbers of men is equal to the ratio of the corresponding numbers
of days.
819. It is obvious that the second term in a proportion is
greater or less than the first according as the fourth is greater or
less than the third. Hence we may lay down the following genera)
rule for arranging the terms in a Rule of Three question.
Denote the answer by the letter x and place it for the 4th
term ; and of the three given quantities place that which is of the
same kind as the answer, for the 3rd term. Next from the nature
of the question determine whether the answer will be greater or
less than the third term, and place the greater or less of the two
remaining quantities for the 2nd term according as the answer is
greater or less than the 3rd term ; then place the remaining
quantity for the first term.
2l3 ARITHMETIC
Note. In working) the two first quantities in the proportion
must be replaced by the numbers which measure them in terms of
the same unit.

XXXIX. DOUBLE RULE OF THREE.
O. Complex problems which would require two or more
applications of ttye Rule of Three are usually solved by a shorter
method, commonly called the Double Rule of Three. The
method will be best explained by means of examples.
Example i. If 9 men can reap 6 acres in 10 days, how many
men will reap 12 acres in 15 days ?
6 ! 12\
days 15 I ioj
We denote the answer by x and place it for the 4th term, and
place 9 men (which is of the same kind as the answer) for the 3rd
term. We next take 6 acres and 12 acres (a pair of quantities of
the same kind), and consider whether the answer will be greater
or less than the 3rd term in the question "if 9 men can reap 6 acres,
how many men will reap 12 acres, supposing the time to be the
same in both cases ?" and we find that the answer will be greater;
we therefore place 12 acres for the 2nd and 6 acres for the ist term.
Then we take 10 days and 15 days (another pair of quantities of
the same kind), and consider whether the answer will be greater
or less than the 3rd term in the question "if 9 men can reap in
10 days, how many men will reap in 1 5 days, supposing the number
iof acres to be the same in both cases ?" and we find that the answer
will be less ; we therefore place 10 days for the 2nd and 15 days
for the ist term, under those already obtained. We now multiply
the numbers in the ist term for the final ist term and the numbers
in the 2nd term for the final 2nd term. Thus

Examples in Double Rule of Three can be worked more
conveniently in a little different manner. In this method the first
work and second work are respectively taken for the third and
fourth terms of the proportion, and the first cause and second cause
respectively for the first and second terms ; Cor, the ratio of the
two causes is equal to the ratio of the corresponding works. We
shall apply the method to the first two of the foregoing examples,
Example i. 9 men in 10 days will do the same amount of work
as (9X 10) men will do in I day ; and x men in 15 days will do the

5. The following are examples of Alligation or the mixing
of things of the same kind but of different qualities.
Example i. How must a grocer mix teas at 2s. 6*/. a Ib. and
3J, 9< a Ib. so that the mixture may be worth 3$ a Ib. ?
When the mixture is made and sold at $s. a Ib., each Ib. of the
cheaper tea in it brings a gain of 6^., and each Ib. of the dearer
tea brings a loss of yd. Therefore 9 Ib. of the cheaper tea brings a
gain of 54^. and 6 Ib. of the dearer brings a loss of 54^. Hence,,
in order that there may be neither any gain nor any loss, for every
9 Ib. of the cheaper tea we must take 6 Ib. of the dearer ; therefore
the proportion is 9 parts to 6, that is, the tea* must be mixed in the
inverse ratio of (he differences of the two prices and the mean price.
Example 2. In what proportion should teas at 2s. 6</., 35., 45. 3</%
and ^s. 9^., a Ib. be mixed to make a mixture worth 4*. a Ib. ?
The first two prices are under, and the last two above, the mean
price. We take equal quantities of the teas at the first two prices,
and the mixture is worth 2s, <)d. a Ib. ; we also take equal quantities
of the teas at the last two prices, and the mixture is worth 45. 6<#
a Ib. Now we mix these two mixtures as in Ex. i, and we find 4
that these must be taken in the proportion of 6 to 15 or 2 to 5,
Consequently the teas are mixed in the proportion of I, i, j. {.
*38 ARITHMETIC
Note. Instead of taking equal quantities we might take the
teas in any proportion to make the first two mixtures ; and conse

Premium is the sum of money paid to an Insurance Company
which, in consideration thereof, undertakes to matte good a loss
incurred through fire or shipwreck, or to pay a certain sum of
money after a man's death to his relatives. The instrument
containing the contract is called the Policy of Insurance ;

XLVII. SIMPLE^NTREST.
30. Interest is money paid for the use of money lent. The
money lent is called the Principal. The Amount is the sum of
the principal and interest at the end of any time. The rate of
interest is the money paid for the use of a certain sum for a
certain time. Thus, if I borrow a sum of money on the condition
that for the use of every rupee in the loan for a month I shall pay
an interest of ^ anna, I am said to borrow at the rate of \ anna per
rupee per month. Again, if I borrow on the condition that for the
use of every Eioo in the loan for one year 1 shall pay an interest
of &5, I am said to borrow at the rate of 5 per cent, per annum.
Note. Per annum means^r a year.
231. When interest is calculated simply on the original prin
cipal it is called Simple Interest.
Wote. 1. The term interest is generally used in the sense of
simple interest.
Example i. Find the simple interest on 24 for 5 months at
\ anna per rupee per month.
Interest on R I for i month M $a.
/ ................ R24 for i month
/ ................ R24 for 5 months
Hence, to find the interest we multiply the principal by 5 and
by ^f, that is, we multiply it by ^j. The work in practice should
"stand thus :

Hence we deduce the following rule :
Multiply the principal by the rate per cent, and by the number
of years ) and divide the product by 100.
The work should stand thus : R.
We divide Ri456o by 100 by 728

due at the end of a given time is that sum which with its interest
for the given time will be equal to the amount.
Discount is the allowance made for the payment of a sum of
money before it is due.
From the definition of present worth, it follows that a debt
which is due at some future period is equitably discharged by paying
the present worth at once. Hence discount is equal to the interest
on th* present worth. And Amount** Present Worthy Discount.

COMMERCIAL DISCOUNT . 26^
COMMERCIAL DISCOUNT.
38. A bill is a promise (in writing) to pay a certain sum of
money at the end of a certain time.
Example. Each of the following is a bill : a Bill of Ex
Change or Hundi (which is a document in which one person
directs another to pay to him or to some other person, a sum of
money at the end of a certain time) ; a Promissory Note
(which is a document in which one person promises to pay
another a sum of money at the end of a certain time).
39. When a banker or moneylender purchases a bill, that is,
advances money at a certain rate per cent, on the security of a
bill, instead of deducting discount he usually deducts interest for
the time specified adding the 3 days of grace. The purchaser of a
bill may sell it at any time before it is due. In this case also, the
second purchaser deducts interest on the amount for the time the
bill has still to run adding the three days of grace.
Note 1. There is a custom, which has the force of law, by
which a bill (if not payable on demand) always runs three day*
(called the days of grace) beyond the time specified. Thus a
bill drawn on the i$th January, at 3 months would be nominally
due on the isth April, but actually due on the iSth. Moreover)
calender months are always reckoned, so that a bill drawn on
the 3ist January, at 3 months, would be nominally due on the
3Oth April and actually on the 3rd May.
Note 2. In working an example the 3 days of grace should
be added only when the information given in the question is suffi
cient to enable us to determine the exact number of days that must
elapse before the bill falls due, and not otherwise.
Example. A bill for ^505 drawn on the 7th March at 4 months
Is discounted (i.e., sold) on the 28th April at 5 per cent. ; how
much does the holder of the bill receive, interest being deducted ?
The bill is nominally due on the yth but actually due on the
loth July ; therefore the bill has still to run from 28th April to
loth July, that is, for 73 days or $ of a year (including one only
of the days named).
Now, interest on 505 for } yr. at 5 p. c.^ 5 5 IO ^ 5sa 5 Ij
/. The holder receives ^505^5. ., *".*., 499. 191.
Note 3. A banker in purchasing a bill obtains a small advan
tage by deducting interest instead of discount
The mathematical discount is called True Discount
366 ARITHMETIC
Banker's discount (/.*., interest) is called Commercial or
Practical Discount.
The bankers gain** 'the difference between the commercial and
true discount.
Note 4. In Arithmetic 'Discount 1 is always understood to
mean true discount (and not commercial discount), Therefore in
working examples true discount is always to be calculated unless
commercial discount is expressly mentioned.
84O. A second kind of commercial discount (which has no
reference to time) is the deduction which is made by a tradesman
for immediate payment of his bill. Thus when a tradesman gives
notice upon his bill that he will allow 10 per cent, discount for
immediate payment, he deducts Rio for every Rioo in the amount
of the bill. The calculation of this discount is therefore the same
as of finding the simple interest on the amount of the bill for I year
at 10 per cent.
EXAMPLES. 166.
1. Find the difference between the commercial and true dis
count on a bill of R6oo2. 8#., due in 4 months, at 6J per cent.
2. A bill is drawn for ^250 on June I2th at 5 months, and is
discounted on Sep. 3rd at 5 per cent. ; how much does the holder

July 3ist at 2 months and discounted on Sep. 3rd at 4 per cent.

discounted on the 23rd April of the same year at 3 per cent. ; what

12. How much per cent, must a tradesman add on to the cost
price of his goods, that he may make 20 per cent, profit after

L. EQUATION OF PAYMENTS.
841. When several sums are due from one person to another,
payable at different times, we may be required to find the time at
which they may all be paid together, so that neither the creditor
nor the debtor may lose. The time so found is called the equated
time of payment.
We give below a rule for finding the equated time, which will be
found sufficiently accurate for all practical purposes.
Rule. Multiply each debt by the number of months [or days]
after which it is due : then divide the sum of the products by the
sum of the debts : the quotient will be the number of months
[or days] in the equated time.
Example. If 8400 be due from A to B at the end of 8 months f
and R6oo at the end of 10 months, when may both sums be paid
in a single payment ?
Number of months in the equated time
EXAMPLES. 107.
1. &2oo is due in 5 months and 400 in 8 months ; find the
equated time of payment.
2. 450 is due 2 months hence, R4<x> is due 3 months hence
and &25<> is due 4 months hence ; what is the equated time ?
3. Find the equated time of payment of ^600, onehalf of
which is due in 6 months, i in 9 months, and the rest in a year.
4. A owes B a debt payable in 4/3 months, but he pays J in
3 months, and i in 4 months : when ought the remainder to be
paid ?
6. A owes B on the loth of April 900 due 40 days hence ;
he pays 400 on the loth of May and 300 on the 2oth of the
same month : on what date ought he to pay the rest ?
268 ARITHMETIC
LI. STOCKS. *
24. Stock is the name given to the money borrowed by
any Government to meet national expenses, or to the Capitals of
Trading Companies.
The money borrowed by a Government is called the National
or Public Debt. The money lent to the Government is said to
be in Government Securities or Government Promissory
.Notes in India, and in the Funds in England. A part of the
National Debt in England is called the Consolidated Annui
ties or Consols.
When any Government raises capital by borrowing, it reserves
to itself the option of paying off the principal at any future timci
but promises to pay the interest at fixed periods. In India and
England the interest is paid halfyearly.
The capital of a Trading Company is divided into shares,
generally of Rioo or 100 each ; those who join the company by
buying one or more of these shares are called Shareholders. The
shareholders are not required to pay the full price of their shares
at once, but they have to pay it in instalments, as the business of
the company progresses and Calls are made. The part of the
capital of the company, which has thus been paid at any timci is
called the Paidup Capital. The profits of the company are
divided periodically among the shareholders ; and the moneys
thus received are called Dividends.
When all the capital of a company has been subscribed and the
company is in need of more capital, it is not usual to issue more
shares like those issued at first. The company generally borrows
money at a fixed rate of interest and agrees to pay the interest on
this money before any dividend on the original shares is paid.
Money so borrowed is called the Preference Stock of the
company, the original capital being called the Ordinary Stock.
The bonds which are given by JointStock Companies, Munici
palities and similar other bodies for borrowed capital are called
Debentures.
43. Stock is transferable by sale ; but its price varies from
a variety of causes. When the market value of Rioo stock is Rioo
cash, the stock is said to be at par ; when Rioo stock is sold for
98, it is said to be at a discount of 2 per cent, or, at 2
below par ; when it is sold for Rio2, it is said to be at a
premium of 2 per cent, or, at 2 above par.
Purchases and sales of stock are usually made through Brokers
who generally charge J per cent, on the stock bought or sold. Thusi
if the market value of Rioo stock is 897$, the purchaser has to
pay R(97i+t) and the seller receives R(97i~i).

Note. By "the 3 per cents." or "3 per cent, stock 11 is meant a

consideration in working examples in stocks.

LIL EXCHANGE.
245. Exchange means the giving or receiving a sum o!
money of one country equal in value to a given sum of money of
another country.
The par of exchange between two countries denotes the
intrinsic value of a coin of one country, as estimated in terms of a
coin of the other country.
EXCHANGE 27?
The course of exchange is the actual or marketable value
at any time of a coin of one country, as estimated in terms of a
coin of the other country.
Thus, the quantity of gold in the English Sovereign being 1*261
times the quantity of gold in the French Napoleon, at par of ex
change /i is equal to i'26i Napoleons ; but in the course of ex
change i may be equal in value to a little more or less than 1*261
Napoleons.
Arbitration of exchange is the determination of the rate of
exchange, called the arbitrated rate, between the first and last
of a given number of places, when the rates of exchange between
the first and second, the second and third, etc., of these places are
known.
46. Money transactions between one country and another
are usually carried on by means of Foreign Bills of Exchange
or briefly Foreign Bills.
The following is the usual mode of proceeding :
Suppose 1 want to transmit 100 to a merchant in London.
1 go to a banker and buy a bill for the given amount, payable in
London, at the current rate of exchange ; I then send the bill to
the merchant in London, who presents it to the person on whom
it is drawn and receives the amount.

Note. In the countries whose names have been printed in
italics in the above table, as in India, the standard coins are silver \
in England the standard coin is gold ; hence the value of the Rupeei
etc.> in English money varies with the amount of silver which can
be bought for a gold sovereign. For some years past the value of
silver as compared with gold has been steadily declining. A few
years ago a Rupee was equal in value to about 2s., now it is equal
to is. 4<
Example I. Calculate the par of exchange between the
sovereign and the rupee, supposing pure gold to be worth 15 times
its weight of pure silver, having given that 46f$ sovereigns are
coined from I Ib. troy of standard gold, ^ fine, and that a rupee
weighs 1 80 grains of silver and is \% fine.
_,, . . . 12x20x24 12x20x8x40
The sovereign weighs   gu or .  gr. ;
and therefore it contains ( 1 ^% x / x4 ^x^)gr. or Afti8**#*Ji gr .
of pure gold.
The rupee weighs 180 gr.; and therefore it contains (180 x }J) gr.
or 165 gr. of pure silver, which is equivalent to * gr. or n gr.
of pure gold.
Now the number of*rupees equivalent to a sovereign is the
same as the number of times n gr. is contained in *&*&$M r
Hence the sovereign = &fi Jfij?T J1 rupees

Example 2. Find the relation between the rupee and the
shilling as determined from the intrinsic value of the two coins ;
having given that a rupee weighs 180 grains, and is jj fine ; and
that I Ib. troy of silver, fine, is coined into 66 shillings.
We find, as in the preceding example, that the rupee contains
165 gr. of pure silver. The shilling contains (14*.J*JA x J J) gr.

LIII. METRIC SYSTEM AND DECIMAL COINAGE.
48. The Metric System of weights and measures, which
originated in France, has been introduced to a greater or less
extent into almost all the countries of Europe. It is also nearly
always used in scientific treatises.
The Tables of weights and measures in the metric system arc
constructed upon one uniform principle, by attaching the following
prefixes to each of the units.

In this system the fundamental unit of length is the Metre,
whence the system is called the metric system. The metre is
equal to 39*370. .. inches, and was originally taken to be the
tenmillionth part of a quarter of the terrestrial meridian. An
error has however been since found in the measurement of the
terrestrial meridian, and the metre therefore is not exactly the
length it was stated to be. The metre was computed to be
39"37079... inches. The latest determination makes it 39*370113...
inches, but the last two figures are uncertain.

The unit of area is the square metre. In measuring land
the unit used is a square decametre, called an are, and the only
multiple and submultiple used are \hihectare (=100 aresa

49. The great advantage of a decimal system of weights and
measures is, as we have seen, that a compound quantity can be
reduced to a simple quantity, and vice versa^ without going
through the processes of multiplication and division. Hence
compound rules are replaced by the corresponding simple rules.

Example 2. The expenses of a family when rice is at 12 seers
for a rupee are R8o a month ; when rice is at 15 seers for a rupee

The prices of a seer of rice in the three cases are RjV, R^V and

Example 15. R49 was divided amongst 150 children, each girl
had 8a. and each boy 40. ; how many boys were there ?
If 4. be given to each child, R37. 8#. will be spent, and the
boys will have got their shares. The remaining sum, RII. Sa.
must therefore be distributed amongst the girls only, giving 40.
to each. Hence the number of girls is the same as the number of
times 40. is contained in RII. Sa. ; therefore the number of girls
is 46, and therefore the number of boys is 104.
294 ARITHMETIC
This example may also be solved by the method of Art. 225.,
Thus : When #49 is divided amongst 150 children, each gets  8 7 V a
on the average. Hence the question may be put thus "Each boy
is to have 40. and each girl 8.; in what ratio should they be mixed
that each may have *W*<*. on the average?" Therefore by the
method of Art. 225 we find that the ratio of the number of boys
to the number of girls must be (S% 2 ) I (W 4) or 104 I 46,
But 104 + 46=8150 ; .*. the number of boys 104, and the number
of girls = 46.

A. To prove that the multiplier and multiplicand may bfc
interchanged without altering the value of the product.
For example, to prove that 5x4=4x5.
Place 5 dots in a line, and repeat this line 4 times, The number
of dots in a row is 5, and there are 4 rows ; there
fore the number of dots altogether is 5 multiplied * ' *
by 4. Again the number of dots in a column is 4, ' * ' * 
and there are 5 columns ; therefore the number of dots '
altogether is 4 multiplied by 5. Hence 5X44X5. ' * ' '
\ B. The product of a recurring decimal by a whole number or
py a terminating decimal may be obtained without converting them
into vulgar fractions. It is evident that the product in such a case
wjill be a recurring decimal, and that its period will contain as
many digits as there are in the period of the multiplicand,
Example i. Multiply 32456 by 7, 7*4 by 4 and 1*236 by n
(i) 3*2456 (") 7H Oil) 1*236

Here, we multiply in the usual way, and increase the la^
in the result by the figure (if any) carried from the ^^ ''
column of the period of the m" u: ^ r

multiplicand. Thus we get (). We now add these lines in the usual
way f out to do this correctly we extend each line (except the top
line) as far as the righthand figure of the top line) by repeating
the digits of its period. The number of decimal places as far as
the end of the first period in the result must be 3 + 2, /.*., 5. We
therefore place the decimal point to the left of the 5th figure from
the end ; and the required product is 51*43727.
Example 3. i "32 56 x 1013*2 6.
Example 4. "3256 x loo '326i x 100=32*562.
Example 5. *x iooo*555x iooo 555*5.
C. To divide a recurring decimal by a whole number, we
>ceed as in ordinary division ; but instead of bringing down a
to each time we br\ng down the digits of the period in rotation.
/the divisor is a terminating decimal, we multiply it by that
^ower of 10 which will make it a whole number, and also multiply
the dividend by the same power of 10 ; and proceed as in the case
of division by a whole number.
