point : and when the decimal does not consist of a complete period or periods, annex a cipher or ciphers to make it so i and she places of the root will be as many as the periods of the given cube in whole numbers and decimals respectively.

Secondly, Find the great root of the left hand period, which place to the right of the given number, and subtract the cube thereof from said period; and to the remainder bring down the next period for a dividual.

Thirdly, Take the triple square of the ascertained root for a defective divisor.

Fourthly, Reverse mentally the units and tens of the di. vidual, and try how often the defe Aive divisor is contained in the rest ; place the result of this trial to the root, and its sqnare to the right of said divisor, supplying the place of dens with a cipher, if the square be less than ro.

Fifthly, Complete the divisor, by adding thereto the pro. duct of the last figure of the root by the rest, and by 30.

Sixthly, Multiply, subtract, and bring down the next perice for a dividual, for which find a divisor as before ; and 80 proceed with every period. Note. Defe&ive divisors, after the first, may be more concise.

ly found by addition, thus: To the last complete divisor, add the number which completed it, with twice the square of the last figure in the roots the sum will be the next defective divisor.

THE ROOTS OF ALL POWERS. IRST, if the index of the power be even, extract the

square-root of the given number; whereby it will be depressed to a power halt as high ; or if the index will divide by 3 without remainder, take the cube root for a power į as high; thus proceed till the required root be obtained, or an odd power result, the index of which will not divide evenly by 3.

II. The root of such an odd power may be extracted thus >

First, Beginning at units, point the given number into per riods of as many figures each as are expressed by its index.

Secondly, Find such a figure or figures, by the table of powers or by trial, as will be nearest the first of the root, whether greater or less.

Thirdly, Involve the part of the root so found to the power, and take the difference between this power and as many periods of the given number as there are figures ober tained of the root, and multiply this difference by the said figures for a dividend.

Fourthly, Multiply the sum of the same periods and pows er by the integral half of the index (i, e. for a 5th power, by 2, a 7th by 3, &c.) and to the product add the said. power for a divisor.

Fifthly, Apply the quotient, as a correction to the part of the root before foand, by addition or subtraction, accordingly, as that part is less or more than just:

Sixthly, Repeat the operation, if greater accuracy, or more figures in the root be desired; using the root so corrected instead of the figure or figures first found, &c.

RITHMETICAL Progression is a rank, or series

of numbers, which increase or decrease by a common difference, in which five particulars are to be observed, viz.

First, The first term ;
Secondly, The common excess, or difference ;
Thirdly, The last term ;
Fourthly, The number of terms;

Fifthly, The sum of all the terms.
Note. In any series of numbers in arithmetical progression she

sum of the two extremes will be equal to the sum of any fuo terms equally distant therefrom: ds, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12; where 2+12–14; 10.4+10=14; and 6+8=14; or 3. 6, 9, 12, 15; where 3+15=18; also 6+12=18; and 9+9=18.

CASE 1. The first term, common difference, and number of terms given, to find the last term, and sum of all the terms :

RULE. First, Multiply the number of terms, less 1, by the com. mon difference, and to that product add the first term, the sum is the last term.

Secondly, Multiply the sum of the two extremes by the number of terms, and half the product will be the sum of the series.
