PEEFACE. 



THE Pestalozzian or Inductive Method of teaching the science 
of numbers is now universally approved by intelligent teachers. 
The first attempt in this country to apply this method to Mental 
Arithmetic resulted in the publication of Colburn's First Lessons, 
a work whose success has not exceeded its merit. It was, 
however, a useful experiment rather than a perfect realization 
of the inductive system of instruction. That the subsequent 
books of the same class and purpose have failed to correct its 
defects, and thus meet the demand it created, is due evidently 
to their departure from the true theory as developed and exem- 
plified by Pestalozzi. 

The Author of this work has endeavored to improve upon all 
his predecessors, by adhering more closely than even Colburn 
did to the original method of the great Swiss educator, and by 
presenting at the same time, in a practical and attractive form, 
such improvements in the application of his principles as have 
stood the test of enlightened experience. 

In accordance with this design, the subjects are so arranged 
that each step of the learner prepares him for that which fol- 
lows. By this suggestive and natural order of arrangement, 
together with copious illustrations of principles and applications 
by means of small concrete numbers, the pupil is led to a clear 
apprehension of the properties and relations of numbers, and 



4 PREFACE. 

is enabled to understand everything as he advances, till he 
acquires a thorough knowledge of the nature and use of the 
essential numerical operations. 

While the general arrangement of the subjects and examples 
is strictly progressive and logical, the difficulty of the problems 
is occasionally varied, in order to prevent the weariness of a 
long, unbroken ascent, and to afford a grateful alternation of 
effort and relaxation, like that experienced by the traveler in 
crossing a country diversified by hill, valley, and plain. 

The analytical process which this method requires at every 
step is calculated to develop and strengthen the mental powers, 
and to form the habit of rapid and accurate thought. Some 
illustrations of modes of analyzing questions have been pre- 
sented merely as suggestions to the pupil ; but the plan of the 
work does not embrace set forms of analysis for the various 
classes of examples, a contrivance little likely to stimulate 
invention or promote self-reliance. On the contrary, its dis- 
tinctive feature is its special adaptation to the mode of teaching 
which leads the learner to ascertain for himself each step to be 
taken, to think and reason independently, and to rely upon his 
own powers and resources, thus securing a vigorous and health- 
ful discipline of his intellectual faculties. 

Though this work is intended as a connecting link between 
the Primary and Written Arithmetics of the Author, thus com- 
pleting the Series on which he has been so long engaged, it is 
also complete in itself. It presents a mental analysis of Arith- 
metic adapted to the younger pupils by its easy gradations, and 
to advanced pupils by its scientific arrangement and its logical 
development of the art of computation ; and yet it has been 
limited to the true province of Intellectual Arithmetic, which is 
to serve as an introduction to Written Arithmetic, and not as a 
substitute for it, as some authors seem to imagine. 



PREFACE. 5 

In the spirit of the inductive method, concrete numbers 
numbers applied to physical objects have been largely em- 
ployed in treating of each topic, as the only fit preparation for 
the exercises upon abstract numbers, which are far more difficult 
for the youthful mind to grasp. 

A few pages of Written Arithmetic have been appended, 
embracing examples in the ground rules and compound num- 
bers, which may be profitably studied in connection with the 
mental lessons illustrating the same principles. 

Fully aware of the difficulty of the task he has undertaken, 
the Author has spared no pains in its execution, and he grate- 
fully acknowledges his obligations for the numerous valuable 
suggestions with which he has been favored by several eminent 
practical teachers. 

The favorable reception of the other books of his Series, en- 
courages him to hope that this attempt to perfect and modernize 
the original Inductive System of Mental Arithmetic, and adapt it 
to the wants of schools of the present day, will meet with the 
general approbation of teachers and educators.

SUGGESTIONS TO TEACHERS. 



THE teacher who would attain high success must study meth- 
ods, and never take it for granted that he is perfect in his art. 
Why does one teacher accomplish twice as much as another, 
with no greater expenditure of time and strength? Because he 
has twice as much skill. Skill is acquired. It is gained by ex- 
perimenting; that is, by experience guided by good judgment, 
and enlightened by the study of methods and expedients. The 
following Suggestions, derived from long experience and much 
study of the subject of teaching Mental Arithmetic, are sub- 
mitted for your consideration, and not as rules which you are 
to blindly follow without the exercise of independent thought. 

1. Take great pains in assigning the lesson, adapting its length 
to the capacity of the class, stating explicitly how it is to be 
learned and in what manner it is to be recited, and giving 
sufficient time for its thorough preparation. 

2. See that the lesson is faithfully studied. Many teachers 
waste time over lessons which have not been properly prepared. 
Sometimes study a lesson with the pupils, to show them how. 

3. Do not require the pupils to commit the questions to memory. 
This is a waste of time. Nor should they commit the answers, 
t'jctr-ittinri the answers to that class of examples which involve a 
single operation upon abstract numbers; that is, such questions 
as are usually comprised in the tables of addition, subtraction, 
multiplication, and division. 

4. Never require a pupil to analyze questions according to a 
set form of analysis, but encourage originality in methods of 
solution. The fewer words in the solution the better, if it is 
correct and intelligible. By all means avoid long and compli- 
cated formulas. 

5. Do not demand reasons for answers which require no 
process of analysis. If the child knows that 4 from 6 leaves 2, 
what is gained by requiring him to say. Because 4 and 2 are 6? 
The thing is no better understood, and time is consumed. 

6. The teacher will read the questions himself, the class dis- 
pensing with the book, or he will allow the pupils to have 
the book and read the examples, as he may prefer. In ques- 
tions requiring analysis the pupils should not be called in turn, 
but promiscuously or by cards, and, if the example is read by the 
teacher, time should be given, after the reading, for the class to 
think, before any pupil is designated to answer. Examples like 
those in Lesson II, page 11, may be recited by the members of 
the class in rotation, the questions being read rapidly. 

7. The answer to a question requiring a process of solution 
should not be given before the solution, but it should be given 
at the conclusion cf the solution. Nor should pupils be required, 
as a practice, to give what may be called an abstract or general 
answer before the solution, like the following : J of 36 is -f of 



SUGGESTIONS TO TEACHERS. 7 

how many times -f of 42? As many times f of 42 as y of 42 is 
contained times in the number of which -J- of j of 36 is J. Such 
exercises may be good discipline, but there is no need of con- 
suming time on exercises merely for discipline, as the oppor- 
tunities for it in acquiring useful knowledge are abundant. 

8. When practicable, it is best that the whole class should 
stand at recitation. At any rate, the pupil who recites should 
stand, and, if the teacher reads the example, the pupil should 
repeat it after him, before giving the explanation. 

9. Never proceed with the recitation unless every member of 
the class is giving attention, but do not try to keep the atten- 
tion too long. Many expedients must be employed to keep the 
attention awake. Sometimes the pupils may "take places/' 
sometimes they may be permitted to correct each other, and 
sometimes a pupil may be called at random to finish a solution 
commenced by another. 

10. Aim at thoroughness in every step. This is much promoted 
by frequent and judicious reviews. With every lesson in advance 
the preceding should be reviewed; and there should be monthly 
and quarterly reviews beside. 

11. If you suspect that a solution has been committed to 
memory without being understood, give a similar original 
question with different numbers. 

12. Where it is practicable, illustrate problems and principles 
by sensible objects. Let fractions be illustrated by dividing an 
apple, a line, a square, or some other object. The tables of weights 
and measures should be taught according to the method of 
obiect-teaching, and not abstractly committed to memory. 

13. As an occasional exercise, let each pupil, from memory, 
propose to the pupil next above him some question embraced 
in the part of the book which has been studied, the pupil failing 
to solve the question put to him losing his place; or, where 
"place taking" is not practiced, let there be a forfeiture of 
merits for failure, or a gain for success. 

14. Original questions similar to examples 32 and 33, page 28, 
to be answered simultaneously by the class, should be proposed 
frequently and enunciated rapidly. 

15. The learner should seldom if ever be told directly how to 
perform any operation in Arithmetic. Much less should he have 
the operation performed for him. Instead of telling the pupil 
directly how to go on, examine him, and endeavor to discover 
in what his difficulty consists, and then, if possible, remove it. 

16. The recitation should be conducted briskly, and it should 
be so managed, if practicable, that each pupil shall endeavor to 
solve every question proposed ; but it is not necessary that the 
whole lesson should be actually recited by each pupil. 

17. But the most important requisite to success is to create and 
to sustain an interest in the study. How can this be done ? In 
the first place you must be really very much interested yourself. 
In the second place, you must teach well. And if you are deeply 
interested in the subject, you will be very likely to find out how 
to teach it skillfully. 



CONTENTS.

SECTION SECOND. 

LESSON I. 

REMARKS. 1. Instead of writing the names of 
numbers, it is customary to express them by certain 
marks, or characters, called figures. 

2. These figures are ten in number, and are called 
Arabic figures. 

3. Taken separately, each figure means the same as 
the word placed under it in the following lines ; thus, 

0, 1, 2, 3. 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. 

Naught, One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine. 

4. To express numbers greater than nine, these fig- 
ures are repeated and combined in various ways ; thus, 



10 . 


.... ten. 


25, 


. ... twenty-five. 


11. . 


. . eleven. 


26, 


. twenty-six.

100, 
102, 
205, 
900, 


. one hundred, 
one hundred and two. 
two hundred and five. 
. . . nine hundred. 



NOTE. It is presumed that the pupil is familiar with all the 
figures, and the manner of combining them so as to express 
small numbers, like those in the above Table, previous to study- 
ing this book. If, however, this is found to be untrue in any 
case, such pupil should be exercised by the teacher, upon the 
' blackboard or elsewhere, until he can readily write in figures 
any number less than 1000. 



LES. II.] ARITHMETIC. 27 

5. To abbreviate expressions, and to indicate the 
relations of numbers to each other, we sometimes use 
signs instead of words. 

(5. This mark, $, is often used as a sign of the word 
dollar, or dollars ; thus, the expression $1, stands for 
one dollar ; $4 stands for four dollars. 

7. The sign of equality, =, signifies that the 
quantities between which it stands are equal to each 
other ; thus, $1 = 100 cents ; that is, one dollar equals 
one hundred cents. 

8. The sign of addition, -\-, called plus or and, 
denotes that the quantities between which it stands 
are to be added together ; thus, 3 -j- 2 = 5 ; that is, 
three plus two equals five, or three and two are five. 

9. The sign of subtraction, , called minus or less, 
signifies that the number after it is to be taken from 
the number before it ; thus, 7 4=3; that is, seven 
minus four, or seven less four, equals three. 

10. The sign of multiplication, X? signifies that the 
two numbers between which it stands are to be multi- 
plied together ; thus, 6 X 5 = 30 ; that is, six multi- 
plied by five equals thirty, or six times five are thirty. 

11. The sign of division, -J-, indicates that the num- 
ber before it is to be divided by the number after it ; 
thus, 8 - 2 = 4 ; that is, eight divided by two equals 
four, or two in eight, four times. 

LESSON II. 

1. MASSACHUSETTS has 14 counties, Rhode Island 
has 5, and Connecticut has 8 ; how many counties have 
the three States ? Ans. 14 + 5 -f 8 = 27. 

2. How many more counties has Massachusetts 
than Rhode Island ? Ans. 14 5 = 9.

SECTION FOURTH. 
LESSON I. 

REMARKS. 1. A single thing of any kind is called a 
unit or one. A unit is represented by the figure 1 

2. When any thing is divided into two or more 
equal parts, each of these parts is called a fraction 
of the thing which is divided. 

3. A fraction, as well as a whole number, may be 
expressed by figures. Each fraction is usually ex- 
pressed by means of two numbers, one written above 
the other, with a line between them ; thus, 



one half. 
. one third. 
. two thirds. 
. one fourth. 
. two fourths, 
three fourths. 

one fifth. 
. two fifths. 



3-, . . . . one sixth. 

f , . . . . five sixths. 

f , . . . . six sixths. 

f , . . . three sevenths. 

f , . . . nine eighths. 

H> . eleven twelfths. 

|f, . . nineteen -twelfth*. 

/y, . . five twenty-firsts. 




76 ' INTELLECTUAL. [SEC. IV. 

4. The number below the line shows into how many 
parts a unit is divided. It is called the DENOM- 
INATOR, because it denominates or gives name to 
the parts ; thus, if an apple, or any thing, is divided into 
three equal parts, each part is one third of the apple or 
thing ; if into eight, each part is one eighth. 

5. The number above the line is called the NU- 
MERATOR, because it numerates or numbers the parts 
taken ; thus the fraction f, indicates that a unit has been 
divided into three equal parts, and that two of the parts 
are used. 

6. The numerator and the denominator are the 
TERMS of the fraction. 

7. A PROPER FRACTION is one whose numerator 
is less than its denominator ; as J, f , . The value 
of a proper fraction is less than one. 

8. An IMPROPER FRACTION is one whose numera- 
tor equals or exceeds its denominator; as, |, f, f. 
The value- of an improper fraction is one or more 
than one ; for this reason it is called an improper frac- 
tion. 

9. A MIXED NUMBER is a whole number and a frac- 
tion united; as 2^, read two and one half; 5|, read 
five and two thirds.

NOTE. Such exercises as the last six examples above should 
be continued only a very few minutes at a time. Let the ex- 
ercise be varied by allowing the class to recite sometimes in 
concert, sometimes individually ; by allowing one pupil to name 
one number, and another the next ; by letting two or more pu- 
pils recite simultaneously, one counting from one number, and 
another from another number ; or by any other mode which 
shall secure the attention and awaken 'the interest pf the class. 

The more complicated of the above plans, if adopted, should 
be commenced with the 2's, the 5's, the 10's, and other numbers 
which give the more simple combinations ; and they should not 
be continued unless the pupils have the ability to proceed with- 
out confusing each other. 

These exercises, if judiciously conducted, are very valuable ; 
and when the pupil shall have acquired the ability to make all 
such combinations with accuracy and rapidity, he will have very 
great facility in all the processes of addition and subtraction.

SECTION SEVENTH. 
LESSON I. 

1. A MERCHANT sold 5 yards of cloth, at J of a dol- 
lar per yard ; what did he receive for it ? 

2. What is 5 times J ? Ans. % X 5 = ='!. 

3. How many are f X 3 ? f X 5 ? 

4. How many are f X 4 ? $ X 7 ? 

5. How many are 3 times $ ? 
-4ws. Three times f are f , or . 

NOTE. The |. are obtained by multiplying the numerator 
by 3, and the J. are obtained by dividing the denominator by 3. 
In examples like this, it is better to divide the denominator, 
because it gives the answer in smaller or lower terms. 

6. How many are 5 times -^ ? "Why ? 

7. At -1*5 of a dollar a pound, what will 5 pounds 
of butter cost ? 

Solution. Five pounds will cost 5 times as much as 1 
pound ; 5 times ^ of a dollar are f of a dollar = $1-J, . 

8. At f of a dollar per pound, what will 4 pounds 
of butter cost ? 

9. What will 6 yards of silk cost, at || of a dollar 
per yard ? 

10. If 1 horse eats ^ T of a ton .of hay in a month, 
how much will 7 horses eat in the same time ? 

11. If 1 man can reap ^J of an acre of rye in a day, 
how much can 8 men reap in the same time ? 

12. If 1 yard of cloth costs |f of a dollar, what will 
8 yards cost ? 

13. How many are 8 times |f ? 9 times -J-J? 

14. How many are 6 times ff ? 11 times Jf ? 

15. How many are 5 times f ? 
Ans. Five times f are f , or 3. 

NOTE. The pupil will observe that if a fraction is multiplied 
by its denominator, the product is the numerator. 

16. How many are 11 times -^ T ? Why ? 



126 INTELLECTUAL [SEC.. VII. 



17. How many are 9 times f ? 15 times 

18. How many are 23 times JJ ? 49 times

rods, at the same rate, will he run in 15 seconds ? 

23. If a locomotive runs f f of a mile in 1 minute, 
how far will it run in 75 minutes ? 

24. If 2 bushels of apples cost f of a dollar, what 
will 1 bushel cost ? 

Solution. One bushel will cost 1 half as much as 2 
bushels ; 1 half of f of a dollar is f of a dollar ; there- 
fore, if 2 bushels cost f of a dollar, 1 bushel will cost 
^ of a dollar. 

NOTE. To find J of a number is the same as to divide the 
number by 2. It is just as evident that J- of &. is 2., as it is that 
of 6 cents is 3 cents. Hence, dividing the numerator of a frac- 
tion by any number, is dividing the fraction by the same number. 

25. If a boy walks 3 miles in f of an hour, how 
long will it take him to walk 1 mile ? 

26. What is of f ? Am. f -j- 3 = f

31. What is -ft -^ 2 ? |f -f- 4 ? f -5- 5 ? 

32. What is * -f- 5 ? -^ -f- 6 ? -%- -f- 8 ? 

33. Hannah divided one third of a pie equally be- 
tween 2 children ; what part of the whole pie did she 
give to each child ? 



LES. II.] ARITHMETIC. 127 

Solution. One third equals f , and \ of is \ ; that 
i s> i of ^ is J ; and therefore she gave \ of the whole 
pie to each ? 

NOTE. Multiplying the denominator by 2 makes twice as 
many parts in the unit, and therefore each part is only one half 
as great ; hence, multiplying the denominator by any number , divides 
the fraction by the same number. 

34. Three fifths of a barrel of flour were divided 
equally among 4 poor families ; what part of a barrel 
did 'each receive ? 

35. If of a bushel of chestnuts are divided equally

sixths of an apple ? 

3. James gave ^ of a pear to William, ^ to George, 
and kept the rest himself; how much did he give 
away ? How much did he keep ? 

NOTE. Change the fractions to sixths. Before fractions that 
have different denominators can be added together, or before one 
can be subtracted from another, it is necessary to change them 
to other fractions that have like denominators.

an acre. This was an increase of 12 J per cent, on the 
previous year's crop ; how many bushels did he raise 
on the acre in 1862 ? 

Solution. Since the increase was 12 J per cent., or |, 
of the crop, 63 bushels is f of the crop ; 63 bushels is 
| of 56 bushels ; therefore, the crop of 1862 was 56 
bushels to the acre.

The agent's commission being 5 per cent, on the pur- 
chase, what sum will he have to expend ? 



112 INTELLECTUAL [SEC. VIII. 

Solution. The sum to be expended is -}-gg- of itself, 
and the commission is y^ of the same sum ; hence 
the sum sent to the agent is -J-g-g- or f of the sum ex- 
pended. $42 is f * $40 ; therefore, etc.

35. An agent retained a commission of 12^ per cent. 
for collecting money, and paid $56 over to his em- 
ployer ; what sum did he collect ? 

Solution. Since 12 per cent, or \ of the sum col- 
lected was retained by the agent, the $56 paid 
over was of the sum collected. $56 is % of $64 ; 
therefore, etc. 

36. A farmer engaged a laborer to thresh his wheat,

10. What is the amount of $84, at 25 per cent., for 
2 years and 6 months ? 

11. At what rate per cent, will $6 gain 45 cents in- 
terest in 1 J years ? 

Solution. The interest of $6 for 1 year, at 1 per cent., 
is 6 cents, and for 1 years it is 1^ times 6 cents, or 
9 cents. If $6, at 1 per cent., gains 9 cents, then to 
gain 45 cents will require as many per cent, as 9 cents 
is contained times in 45 cents : 9 cents in 45 cents, 5 
times ; therefore, $6, at 5 per cent., will gain 45 cents 
in 1^ years. 

Or, thus : Since the interest for 1 years or f years 
is 45 cents, for ^ year it is ^ of 45 cents, or 15 cents, 
and for f years or a whole year it is 2 times 15 cents, 
or 30 cents ; 30 cents is -gfa = i'%i5 f $6 ; T $^ is 5 per 
cent. ; therefore, $6, at 5 per cent., gains 45 cents in 1^

1 6. At what per cent, will a given principal double 
itself in 20 years ? 

Solution. Any principal will double itself in 1 year, 
at 100 per cent. ; and, therefore, in 20 years, at ^ of 
100 per cent., viz., 5 per cent. 

17. At what per cent, will any principal double it-

18. In what time will $6, on interest at 5 per cent., 
gain 70 cents ? 

Solution. $6, at 5 per cent., gains 30 cents in 1 
year ; 30 cents in 70 cents, 2^ times ; therefore, $6, at 
5 per cent., will gain 70 cents in 2J years, or 2 years 
and 4 months. 

19. In what time, at 6 per cent., will $10 gain $3 ?

cents ? 

22. In what time, at 8 per cent., will $50 gain $23 ? 

23. In what time, at 5 per cent., will a given prin- 
cipal double itself? 

/Solution. Any principal, at 1 per cent., will double 
itself, i. e. it will gain 100 per cent., in 100 years ; 
and at 5 per cent., in of 100 years y viz., 20 years. 

24. In what time, at 4 per cent., will any principal 
double itself? In what time, at 6 per cent. ? At 8

At 6 per cent. ? At 16f per cent. ? At 33 per cent. ? 

LESSON IV. 

1. WHAT principal, at 6 per cent., will gain 36 
cents in 1 year and 6 months ? 

Solution. $1, at 6 per cent., gains 9 cents in 1 year 
and G^months ; 9 cents in 36 cents, 4 times; therefore, 
$4, at 6 per cent., will gain 36 cents in 1 year and 6 
months. 

Or, since the interest of any sum for 1 year and 6 
months, at 6 per cent., is y^ of the principal, it fol- 
lows that 36 cents is T <y of the required principal ; 
hence, ^ of 36 cents, or 4 cents, is T ^, and yg| is 100 
times 4 cents, which is 400 cents, or $4 ; therefore, etc.

5. What principal, at 8 per cent., will gain $60 in 
3 years and 9 months ? 

6. What principal, at 10 per cent,, will amount to 
$6.60 in 1 year ? 

Solution. The amount of $1 for 1 year, at 10 per 
cent., is $1.10 ; $1.10 in $6.60, 6 times ; therefore, 
$6, at 10 per cent., will amount to $6.60 in 1 year. 

Or, the interest of any sum for 1 year, at 10 per 
cent., is -j^ of the principal, and this added to the 
principal, -}-$, makes the amount = -J-i of the principal ; 
hence, $6.60 is |J of the principal, and'^ of $6.60, or 
60 cents, is -fa, and |g, or the whole principal, is 10 
times 60 cents = 600 cents, or $6 ; therefore, etc.

LESSON HI. 

1. DIVIDE 32 into two such parts that the less part 
shall have the same relation to the greater that 3 has 
to 5. 

Solution. 3 and 5 are 8 ; therefore, if 32 is divided 
into 8 equal parts, 3 of those parts will be "the less of 
the two required numbers, and 5 of them will be the 
greater. 3 times \ of 32 are 12, the less part, and 5 
times of 32 are 20, the greater part. 

NOTE. This is usually called Ratio. The ratio of 3 to 5 is 
J, and the ratio of 12 to 20 is J, which can be reduced to 3.

$20 for 1 month, and B's 8 for 3 months are the same as 
$24 for 1 month ; therefore, the total capital may be 
considered $44, and A's share is ff or^\? an( l B' s 
share is f f or T \ ; y\ of $88 is $40, A's share of the 
gain, and T 6 T of $88 is $48, B's share.

15. A hare is 7 of his own leaps before a hound, 
and takes 5 leaps while the hound takes 3, but 4 of 
the hound's leaps are equal to 7 of the hare's ; how 
many leaps must the hound take to gain on the hare 
the length of one of the hare's leaps ? How many 
leaps must the hound take to catch the hare ? 

Solution. Since 1 of the hound's leaps is J of a leap 
of the hare, 3 of the hound's leaps are equal to ^-, or 
5 of the hare's leaps ; hence, in taking 3 leaps the 
hound gains ^ of one leap of the hare, and therefore he 
must take 4 times 3 leaps, or 12 leaps, to gain 1 leap 
of the hare ; and to gain 7 leaps, he must take 7 times 
12 leaps, or 84 leaps.

The tables may be profitably used in many ways. The columns may 
be added upward or downward, or substituting -f- f r > X and -5-, 
add across the page. Substituting for -5- , the table for division 
becomes a table for subtraction. By dividing the dividend of one ex- 
ample by the divisor of another, mixed numbers maybe obtained; 
thus, in Nos. 4G and 47, say 4 in 25, 5 in 36, 7 in 48, etc. 



WRITTEN ARITHMETIC. 



.1. ON page 26 the pupil has learned the names and 
meaning of the ten Arabic figures, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9; 
and on page 27 he has learned the names and uses of the 
signs, $, ~, +, -, X, -T-- 

2. The learner has also doubtless observed that the 
value of a figure depends not only on the figure itself, but 
also on the place the figure occupies ; for example, 4, 
standing alone, means four units, or ones ; but when the 4 
is made to occupy the second place, by putting or any 
other figure on the right of it, it becomes four tens ;''t\ms, 
40 equals four tens, or forty ; 46 equals four tens plus six, 
that is, forty-six, etc. Again, when two figures are at the 
right of 4, the 4 becomes four hundreds, which equals ten 
times four tens ; that is, each remove of a figure one place 
toward the left makes its value ten times as much as it was 
before. This will be seen in the following Table : 




C S3 ** 

2 2 2, 2 2 2 = Two Wred and twenty-two tnonsant two nnndrcd and twenty-two. 

327= Three hundred and twenty-se?en. 
5, 4 9 6 = fire thousand four hundred and ninefy-sii. 
6 ; 2 4 3 = Sixty thousand, two hundred and forty-three. 
6 1, 3 5 = Sii nundred and one thousand, three hundred and fire. 



WRITTEN ARITHMETIC. 1G5 

3. Let the pupil read the following numbers : 
1. 5G 5. 246 9. 3,742 13. 62,875 

2. 78 6. 307 10. 5,897 14. 80,94C 

3. 87 7. 843 11. 8,609 15. 384,600 

4. 95 8. 960 12. 9,054 16. 987,403 

4. Write the following numbers in figures : 

1. Forty-seven. 

2. Sixty. 

3. Two hundred and seventy-nine. 

4. Five hundred and eight. 

5. Three thousand, five hundred and sixty-two. 

6. Eight thousand and two hundred. 

7. Sixty-two thousand, five hundred and twenty. 

8. One hundred and six thousand, two hundred and four. 

9. Four hundred thousand, four hundred and thirteen. 

ADDITION. 

5. BY ADDITION we find how many units there are in 
two. or more numbers taken together. The result of the 
addition is called the SUM, or AMOUNT. 

6. To add when the amount of each column is less than 
ten. 

Ex. 1. A farmer sold 125 bushels of corn, 342 bushels 
of oats, and 231 bushels of wheat ; how many bushels of 
grain did he sell ? Ans. 698. 

OPERATION. 

Having set the numbers so that units stand 
342 under units, tens under tens, etc., add the units ; 
thus, 1 and 2 are 3, and 5 are 8, and set the 8 



Sum, 698 under the column of units. Then add the tens ; 
thus, 3 and 4 are 7, and 2 are 9, and set the 9 
under the column of tens, and so proceed till all the col- 
umns are added. 

In like manner add the following examules : 

2. . 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8,

16. A man paid $112 for a horse, $235 for a chaise, and 
$41 for a harness ; \vhat did he pay for all ? 

17. A gardener has 231 apple trees, 124 pear trees, 322 
peach trees, and 200 cherry trees ; how many trees has he ? 

18. Add together 205, 342, 120, and 212. 

19. Add together 134, 213, 401, and 141. 

20. What is the sum of 1231, 8214, and 4323 V 

21. What is the sum of 5100, 1424, and 2432 ? 

7. To add when the amount of any column is ten or 
more. 

22. A man bought 4 farms. The first contained 345 
acres, the second 244 acres, the third 346 acres, and the 
fourth 638 acres ; how many acres were there in the 4 
farms ? 

OPERATION. 

345 We find the sum of the units to be 23, or 
244 2 tens and 3 units. We write the 3 units 

346 under the column of units, and add the 2 tens 
638 to the tens in the next column, making 1 7 tens, 

Sum 1573 or 1 hundred and 7 tens. The 7 tens are writ- 
ten in the place of tens, and the 1 hundred, 
added to the hundreds in the example, giving 15 hundreds, 
or 1 thousand and 5 hundreds ; and when these figures are 
written in their respective places, the example is solved. 

8. In the same manner add the numbers in the follow- 
ing short columns ; also add across the page, as suggested by 
the signs.

Sub. 137 j n j 12 units; and then 7 units from 12 units 
Hem. 845 leave 5 units. Now as one of the 8 tens has 
been put with the 2 units, only 7 tens remain 
in the minuend, and 3 tens from 7 tens leave 4 tens ; and, 
finally, 1 hundred from 9 hundreds leaves 8 hundreds; 
therefore, the entire remainder is 845.

MULTIPLICATION. 

13. BY MULTIPLICATION we find how many units 
there are in any number of times a given number. 

The number to be repeated is called the MULTIPLI- 
CAND ; the number which shows how many times the mul- 
tiplicand is to be taken is called the MULTIPLIER ; the re- 
sult of the multiplication is called the PRODUCT. The 
Multiplicand and Multiplier are called FACTORS. 

14. To multiply by a single figure. 

Ex. 1. In 1 bushel there are 32 quarts ; how many 
quarts are there in 9 bushels ? 

OPERATION. Having set the factors as in the mar- 
Multiplicand, 32 gin, we say, 9 times 2 units are 18 units 

Multiplier, 9 = 1 ten and 8 units; write the 8 units 

Product 288 * n un i ts> place, an d tnen Sa 7 9 times 3 
tens are 27 tens, which, increased by 
the 1 ten previously obtained, make 28 tens = 2 hundreds 
and 8 tens, and these, written in the place of hundreds 
and tens respectively, give the true product, 288qt.

DIVISION. 

17. BY DIVISION we find how many times one number 
is contained in another. 

The number to be divided, is called the DIVIDEND ; 
the number by which to divide is called the DIVISOR; 
the number of times the dividend contains the divisor is 
called the QUOTIENT. If anything is left after dividing, 
it is called the REMAINDER. 

1. To perform Short Division. 

Ex. 1. How many weeks are there in 364 days ? 

OPERATION. In dividing we first say, 7 in 

Divisor, 7)364 Dividend. 36, 5 times and 1 remainder; 

Quotient 52 set * ne q u ti ent 5, under the 6 

of the dividend, and then, im- 
agining the remainder, 1, placed before the 4, say, 7 in 14, 
2 times ; set the 2 under the 4, and thus we find the quo- 
tient, 52. This process is called Short Division.

19. To perform Long Division. 

Ex. 29. Paid $4932 for 9 acres of land \ what was the 
price per acre ? 

Having set the divisor and dividend as in 
Short Division, draw a curve at the right of the 
dividend, and then say, 9 in 49, 5 times, and set 
the 5 at the right of the dividend. Then 
multiply the divisior by the quotient, 5, and set 
the product, 45, under the 49 of the dividend, 
and substract the 45 from the 49. To the re- 
mainder, 4, annex 3, the next figure of the 
dividend, so forming a new partial dividend, 
and then say, 9 in 43, 4 times, and set the 4 as 
the next figure of the quotient. Multiply the divisor by 
this new quotient-figure, and substract the product from the 

Sartial dividend. Proceed in this manner until the whole 
ividend has been divided. This is called Long Division. 

2O. In the same manner solve the following examples ; 
also divide in the manner indicated by the signs.
