Excerpt from Practical Business Arithmetic
This book has been prepared particularly for the use of teachers and pupils of continuation schools, pre-vocational classes, trade schools, and high schools offering courses in salesmanship, dressmaking, millinery, and domestic science. It presents the work as it has been practically conducted by the author during years of experience as teacher of continuation schools, and instructor in business methods in high schools.
It is designed to meet the educational needs of all those who wish to enter the business world and those who have entered it without a sufficient knowledge of the fundamental operations in arithmetic, or who lack the power to apply their knowledge to the solution of present-day business problems.
The chief consideration in the preparation of the book has been the needs of the pupil; and only such phases of work have been presented as are applicable to business. The problems selected are real, not imaginary, and are such as arise in the daily work or business surroundings of the pupil. The work is directed to the solution of problems by the short est methods, thus minimizing the opportunity or likelihood of error and adding to the bread-winning power of the worker.
