...ninths of it : how many feet did he lose? 131. We have seen that multiplying by a whole number is taking **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier.** (Art. 45.) On the other hand, If the multiplier is only a part of a unit, it is plain we must lake... | |

...multiplicand three times : thus 3 times 4, or 4+4+4=12, &c. Hence, Multiplying by any whole number is taking **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier.** Note. — The application of this principle to fractional multipliers will be illustrated under fractions.... | |

...adding three 5's together. We see from the above examples, that any product may be found by setting down **the multiplicand as many times as there are units in the multiplier,** and adding all the numbers together. MULTIPLICATION is therefore a short method of addition. MULTIPLICATION... | |
