Page 258 - RULE. — • Multiply each debt by its term of credit and divide the sum of the products by the sum of the debts. The quotient will be the average term of credit.
Page 265 - This sum will be the complete divisor. Multiply the complete divisor by the second figure of the root, subtract the product from the dividend, and to the remainder annex the next group for a new dividend.
Page 54 - Then divide the remaining figures of the dividend by the remaining figures of the divisor.
Page 243 - The equality of the two ratios may be indicated by the sign = or by the double colon :: Thus, we may indicate that the ratio of 8 to 4 is equal to that of 6 to 3, in any of the following ways : 8:4 = 6:3, 8:4::6:3, f = 3, 8-5-4 = 6-f-3.
Page 265 - Subtract the square of this figure from the left-hand period, and to the remainder annex the next period for a dividend.
