...Product That Multiplication is a short way of performing several additions, may be shown by setting down **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** and adding up the numbers. Thus, in the first example : 425 425 425 It will be seen that the sum of... | |

...be subtracted, and then proceeding the same as in addition. Multiplying by a whole number is taking **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier.** Multiplying by a fraction is taking a certain portion of the multiplicand, as many times as there are... | |

...quantities in the following manner, (a -\-b-\-f) (c + d). Now, in multiplication, we propose to repeat **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier** ; and hence, in this example, we are to repeat a -\-b-\-f as many times as there are units in c + rf.... | |

...numerator, or divide its denominator, by that number, for, as to multiply one number by another, it to take **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** if the multiplicand be a fractional quantity, we must repeat that fractional quantity as many times... | |

...how many times the multiplicand is to be repeated, is called the multiplier. The number arising from **repeating the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** is called the product. The multiplicand and multiplier are called factors, or producers of the product.... | |

...b)—a-\-b. MULTIPLICATION. 40. Algebraic multiplication has the same object as arithmetical, viz., to repeat **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier.** It is generally proved, in arithmetical treatises, that the product of two or more numbers is the same,... | |

How then can a line, a surface,** of a solid, become a multiplier ? To explain this it will be necessary to observe, that whenever one... | |

...calculations, there is frequent occasion for multiplication, division, involution, &c. But how, it may be **asked, can geometrical quantities be multiplied into each other? One of the** factor?, in multiplication, is always to be considered as mnumber. (Art. 91.) The operation consists... | |

...multiplier, and the quotient will be the multiplicand. To prove multiplication by addition, set down **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** and add their several numbers, and their amount will agree with the required product. If the multiplier... | |
