Description

Excerpt from The American Preceptor's Assistant: Containing a System of Practical Arithmetic; Adapted to the Capacities of Youth The tables inserted in reduction, by some authors, are, in this treatise, omitted; as they swell the book to little purpose: The pupil being thoroughly acquainted with the tables in Compound Addition, would supersede the necessity for the tables in that rule. The three la 1: cases in Vulgar Fractions, and Combination of Numbers, are also omitted the uselessness of which, and a desire to make room for things of greater utility, without ingreas ing the price of the book, being thought a sufiieien't apo logy for their suppression. Some useful information, therefore, respecting Carpenter and Mason's work, is added; which cannot fail of being acceptable to youth\ apprenticed to these callings. But as to these, and some other advantages, which I hope this treatise will be found to possess, and the mode adapted respecting federal money in the several rules, the public decision will he the best criterion.
