### RAY'S INTELLECTUAL ARITHMETIC

RAY'S INTELLECTUAL ARITHMETIC

INDUCTION AND ANALYSIS.
.
HINTS TO TEACHERS.
LET the pupils be classified with reference to their attainments and abilities. The recitation should be short and spirited, every pupil being required to give undivided attention to the question before the class. Generally, while reciting, the pupils should be permitted to have their books open before them the test of having properly studied the lesson, being the readiness and accuracy with which the several questions are analyzed and answered. The explanations and operations termed ANALYSIS, are intended as Model Solutions, pointing out to the learner the manner in which the questions in the lessons are to be solved and explained. The pupil should be required to furnish a similar explanation to each of the succeeding questions, and to give, not only a correct answer, but also, the reason for the method by which he obtained it. A method of solving questions in Mental Arithmetic, now much used, is the following, called the "Four Step Method."

ILLUSTRATIONS. First step, James gave 7 cents for apples and 8 cents for peaches; how many cents did he spend? Second step, as many as the sum of 7 cents and 8 cents. Third step, 1 cents and 8 cent1? are 15 cents. Fourth step, hence, if James gave 7 cents for apples, and 8 cents for peaches, he spent 15 cents.
Again: First step, 4-fifths of 25 are how many times 6? Second step, as many times 6 as 6 is contained times in 4-fifths of 25. Third step, 1-fifth of 25 is 5, 4-fifths are 4 times 5, which are 20; 6 in 20 is contained 3 and 2-sixths times. Fourth step, therefore, 4-fifths of 25 are 3 and 2-sixths times 6? As a means of keeping the attention of the class directed to each question, it. will be proper for the instructor occasionally to read an example aloud, and, having allowed sufficient time for the answer, to call upon some one for the result, and then for the analysis. By this means, each one is obliged to solve the example not knowing but that he may be required to answer it.

To TEACHERS. Instead of requiring pupils to recite the Subtraction Table regularly, some of the best instructors omit it, and connect the exercises with addition, thus:
1 and 2 are 3 2 and 3 are 5
2 and 1 are 3 3 and 2 are 5
1 from 3 leaves 2 2 from 5 leaves 3
2 from 3 leaves 1 3 from 5 leaves 2
In case the Table should not be omitted, the above exercises will be found very profitable.

SECTION IV. REVIEW.
LESSON I.
1. James had 13 marbles; he gave 2 to Henry, and
three to Thomas : how many had he left ?
ANALYSIS. He bad as many left as the difference between
13 marbles, and the sum of 2 marbles and 3 marbles ; the sum
of 2 marbles and 3 marbles is 5 marbles; 5 from 13 leaves 8
marbles ; therefore, if James had 13 marbles, and gave 2 to
Henry and 3 to Thomas, he had 8 left.

GENERAL REVIEW.
APPLICATIONS OF MENTAL ARITHMETIC,
SECTION XXIV.
THM preceding sections contain all the elementary forms of
Anatysiw. Those who are properly acquainted with them, will
find bnt little difficulty in these applications.
SUGGESTION. Where the numbers are large, it is better to add
by 10' s or 100's, as the case may be.
To add 25 ai*d 35 : 20 and 80 are 50 ; 5 and 5 are 10 ; 50 and
10 are 60. Or, 5 and 30 are 55; 55 and 5 are 60.
OP THE SIGNS.
The sign +, called plus, means more. The numbers
between which it is placed are to be added.
Thus, 2+4, (2 plus 4), shows that 2 and 4 are to be
The sign of equality, =, shows that the number of
units on the right and left of it are equal to each other.
Thus, 2 + 4 = 6, means that 2 added to 4 equal 6 j and
is read, 2 and 4 are 6, or 2 plus 4 equal 6.
EXAMPLES. 4 + 2 = how many ?
3 + 5 = how many ?
2 + 3 + 4 = how many ?
1 + 3 + 5 + 7 = how many ?
\$4 + \$3 + \$1 + \$2 = how many \$'s ?

14. Fifty-nine plus 21 + 32 + 15 + 11 = what?
LESSON II. SUBTRACTION.
The sign , called minus, means less. Placed between
two numbers, it shows that the one on the right, is to be
taken (subtracted), from the one on the left.
Thus, 4 2=2; read> 4 minus (less) 2 equal 2.
EXAMPLES. 5 2 = how many ?
3 + 9 8 = how many ?
1 + 5 + 9 10= how many ?
2 + 3 + 4+8 11= how many ?
\$5 + \$9 + \$7 + \$4 \$12 = how many \$'s ?

11. \$160+\$80 +130 \$210 \$30 \$10 \$40==?
LESSON III. MULTIPLICATION.
The sign X, denotes multiplication, read, multiplied
ly. When placed between two numbers, it shows that
ihey are to be multiplied together.
Thus, 3x5, means 3 multiplied by 5.
EXAMPLES. 3X5 = how many ?
2X5X7 = how many ?
2X4X6X3 = how many ?
\$8 + \$12 \$7 X 10 = how many \$'s ?

11. How many yd. in 3 bales of cloth, each containing
6 pieces of 35 yd. each ?
LESSON IV. DIVISION.
The sign -7-, is read, divided ~by. When placed between
two numbers, it shows that the first is to be divided
by the second.
Thus, 6-7-2, means that 6 is to be divided by 2.
EXAMPLES. 6-

1. A hare takes 4 leaps while a hound takes 3 ; 2 of
the hound's leaps = 3 of the hare's : how many leaps
must the hound take to gain the length of a hare's leap
on the hare ?
ANALYSIS. Since 2 of the hound's leaps 3 of the hare's,
1 of the hound's leaps = l^of the hares, and 3 of the hound's
leaps 4^ of the hares; hence.
In taking 3 leaps the hound gains % the length of a hare's
leap on the hare; therefore,
The hound must take 6 leaps to gain 1 leap on the hare.

catch the hare ?
ANALYSIS. Since the hound takes 3 leaps while the hare
takes 4, the hound will take 1 leap while the hare takes 1|
leaps, and 2 leaps, while the hare takes 2| ; but,
REVIEW. QUESTIONS. 1 45
By the second condition, 2 of the hounds leaps 3 of the
hare's ; therefore,
In making 2 leaps the hound gains | of a hards leap on the
hare ; that is, 3 leaps 2f leaps ; hence,
To gain 10 of the hares leaps, the hound must make as many
times 2 leaps as is contained times in 1 0, that is, 60 leaps.
5. A hare is 100 leaps before a hound, and takes 5
leaps while the hound takes 3 ; but 3 leaps of the hound

8. A fish's head is 6 in. long ; its tail is as long as
the head and half of its body ; and the body is as long
as both head and tail : what is the length of the fish ?
ANALYSIS. Since the tail is as long as the head and half
the body, the tail is 6 in. + ^ the body ; but,
The body = the head and tail ; therefore, the body = 6 in. +
6 in. + ^ the body ; that is,
The body = 12 in. + i the body ; therefore, J the body is 12
in., and the body is 24 in. long.
The tail 6 in. + J of 24 in.= 18 in. Therefore, the whole
length is 6 in. + 24 in. + 18 in. = 48 in.

LESSON XII.
1. A gentleman meeting some beggars, found that if
he gave each of them 3 ct., he would have 12 ct. left, but
if he gave each of them 5 ct., he would not have money
enough by 8 ct. : how many beggars were there ?
ANALYSIS. Each beggar will receive 2 ct. more when there
are 5 ct. given to each, than when there are 3 ct. ; but,
Since the money to be distributed is 12 ct. more than 3 ct.
for each beggar, and 5 ct. for each beggar is S ct. more than
the money, it will, therefore, require 20 ct. more to give 5 ct. to
each, than to give 3 ct. ; hence,
As each beggar gets 2 ct. more, it will take as many beggars
to get 20 ct. more, as 2 ct. are contained times in 20 c, which
are 10. Ans. 10 beggars.

he worked ; and the laborer, for every da. he was idle,
was to forfeit 81 ; at the expiration of 20 da., the laborer
received 825 : how many da. was he idle ?
at the expiration of the 20 da,, \$.40; but as he received only
\$25, he lost \$15 by being idle.
Each da. he was idle he received \$3 less than if he had
worked, \$2 wages, and the \$1 forfeited; hence,
He was idle as many da. as \$3 are contained times in \$15,
that is, 5 da.
15. James was hired for 30 da. ; for every da. he
worked, he was to receive 30 ct., and for every day he

16. When A and B entered school, the age of A was 3
times that of B ; but in 5 yr., A's age was only twice
B's : what were their ages at first ?
ANALYSIS. Since the age of A is three times that of B, and
when 5 yr. are added to each, the age of A is only twice that
of B, therefore,
Three times the age of B, (which is the age of A,) increased
by 5 yr. = twice the age of B and 5 yr ; that is, =
twice the age of B, and twice 5 yr. ; hence,
The age of B must be 5yr.; and that of A, 15 yr.

the first watch and chain are worth half as much as the
second; the chain and second watch, are worth 3 times
as much as the first : what is the value of each ?
ANALYSIS, Since the 1st watch and chain are together
worth 1-halfofthe 2nd, the 2nd must be worth twice the 1st +
twice the chain. But,
The 2nd watch and chain = 3 times the first; or the 2nd
watch= 3 times the 1st the chain; hence,
Three times the 1st the chain 2 times the first + 2 times
the chain; or the 1st= 3 times the chain, or \$30; and
the 2nd = \$80.
