62are the successive multiples of 5d.

64Then, if possible, B and, C themselves are to be resolved each into rnI factors (counting 1 as a factor), which factors, or multiples of them, shall be not less than t nor greater than 6t; or if B and C contain inconveniently large prime factors, an approximate velocity ratio, found by the method of continued fractions, is to be substituted for B/C as before.

55we find the multiples of 12d.

43From the east this unit passed to Asia Minor; and six multiples of 2 to 20 shekels (av.

31An illiterate population is very prone to state its age in even multiples of five, and even where education is widely spread this tendency is not altogether absent, as may be seen from the examples given in TABLE III.

32On account of this difficulty, the atomic weights published by Dalton, and the more accurate ones of Berzelius, were not always identical with the values now accepted, but were often simple multiples or submultiples of these.

33Each of the four faces of each rod contains multiples of one of the nine digits, and is similar to one of the slips just described, the first rod containing the multiples of o, I, 9, 8, the second of o, 2, 9, 7, the third of o, 3, 9, 6, the fourth of 0, 4, 9, 5, the fifth of I, 2, 8, 7, the sixth of I, 3, 8, 6, the seventh of I, 4, 8, 5, the eighth of 2, 3, 7, 6, the ninth of 2, 4, 7, 5, and the tenth of 3, 4, 6, 5.

21It has been connected theoretically with a binary division of the 10 shekels or "stone" of the Assyrian systems (28), 1290/16 being 80.625; this is suggested by the most usual multiples being 40 and 80 = 25 and 50 shekels of 129; it is thus akin to the mina of 50 shekels previously noticed.

21A beautiful set of multiples of the scripulum was found near Lyons (38), from 1 to 10 x 17.28 grains, showing a libra of 4976.

23For reduction of pounds to shillings, or shillings to pounds, we must consider that we have a multiple-table (§ 36) in which the multiples of £I and of 20S.

23(iii) The multiples of to are usually strongly marked; but special stress is also laid on other important numbers, e.g.

10If we take several different units, and write down their successive multiples in parallel columns, preceded by the numberseries, we obtain a multiple-table such as the following: It is to be considered that each column may extend downwards indefinitely.

10Submultiples.-The relation of a unit to its successive multiples as shown in a multiple-table is expressed by saying that it is a submultiple of the multiples, the successive submultiples being one-half, one-third, one-fourth,..

10When large multiples are brought into small areas, they often destroy what we are trying to create.

10(c) the standard gallon (and multiples and fractions of it), declared to contain 10 lb of water at 62° F., being in volume 277.274 cub.

11Again, there are many theories of the equivalence of different cubic cubits of water with various multiples of talents (2, 3, 18, 24, 33); but connexion by lesser units would be far more probable, as the primary use of weights is not to weigh large cubical vessels of liquid, but rather small portions of precious metals.

11The multiples of the 20.63 cubit are in late times generally reckoned in these feet of 2/3 cubit.

11In these cases the digit itself, or decimal multiples, seem to have been used.

11Directed Ten Days To Be Suppressed In The Calendar; And As The Error Of The Julian Intercalation Was Now Found To Amount To Three Days In 400 Years, He Ordered The Intercalations To Be Omitted On All The Centenary Years Excepting Those Which Are Multiples Of 400.

11The selection of three as their number has been supposed to refer to the most ancient division of the year into spring, summer and winter, but it is probably only another instance of the Greek liking for that particular number or its multiples in such connexions (three Moerae, Charites, Gorgons, nine Muses).

112 Towards the end of the third quarter of the 19th century it therefore became clear that electricity, whatever be its nature, was associated with atoms of matter in the form of exact multiples of an indivisible minimum electric charge which may be considered to be " Nature's unit of electricity."

11The Hebrews had a notation containing separate signs (the letters of the alphabet) for numbers from t to to, then for multiplies of to up to zoo, and then for multiples of too up to 400, and later up to moo.

11Multiple-Tables.-The diagram C or D of § 35 is part of a complete table giving the successive multiples of the particular unit.

11In actual practice, of course, we subtract large multiples at a time.

11The values of coin and notes are expressed in multiples of the real (plural reis), a monetary unit which does not actually exist.

11The use of the slips for the purpose of multiplication is now evident; thus to multiply 2085 by 736 we take out in this manner the multiples corresponding to 6, 3, 7, and set down the digits as they are obtained, from right to left, shifting them back one place and adding up the columns as in ordinary multiplication, viz.

12Each rod therefore contains on two of its faces multiples of digits which are complementary to those on the other two faces; and the multiples of a digit and of its complement are reversed in position.

12The magnetic and electric forces are directed alternately in one direction and the other, and at distances which are called multiples of a wave length the force is in the same direction at the same time, but in the case of damped waves h.as not quite the same intensity.

12The parts of the flower are most frequently arranged in fives, or multiples of fives; for instance, a common arrangement is as follows, - five sepals, succeeded by five petals, ten stamens in two sets of five, and five or fewer carpels; an arrangement in fours is less frequent, while the arrangement in threes, so common in monocotyledons, is rare in dicotyledons.

12The masses of different elements which combine separately with one and the same mass of another element, are either the same as, or simple multiples of, the masses of these different elements which combine with each other.

12Then a binary n", equated to zero, represents n straight lines through the origin, and the x, y of any line through the origin are given constant multiples of the sines of the angles which that line makes with two fixed lines, the axes of co-ordinates.

12As new axes of co-ordinates we may take any other pair of lines through the origin, and for the X, Y corresponding to x, y any new constant multiples of the sines of the angles which the line makes with the new axes.

12If now the nti c denote a given pencil of lines, an invariant is the criterion of the pencil possessing some particular property which is independent alike of the axes and of the multiples, and a covariant expresses that the pencil of lines which it denotes is a fixed pencil whatever be the axes or the multiples.

12Thus, if we have an equation P=Q, where P and Q are numbers involving fractions, we can clear of fractions, not by multiplying P and Q by a number m, but by applying the equal multiples P and Q to a number m as unit.

12Thus, the gases are not present in simple multiples of their combining weights; atmospheric air results when oxygen and nitrogen are mixed in the prescribed ratio, the mixing being unattended by any manifestation of energy, such as is invariably associated with a chemical action; the gases may be mechanically separated by atmolysis, i.e.

12In 1815 he published anonymously in the Annals of Philosophy a paper "On the relation between the specific gravities of bodies in their gaseous state and the weights of their atoms," in which he calculated that the atomic weights of a number of the elements are multiples of that of hydrogen; and in a second paper published in the same periodical the following year he suggested that the rrpcbrn iiXrl of the ancients is realized in hydrogen, from which the other elements are formed by some process of condensation or grouping.

00Hence the successive remainders are successively smaller multiples of L, but still integral multiples, so that the series of quotients k, s, t,.

00This whole class seems to cling to sites of Phoenician trade, and to keep clear of Greece and the north -- perhaps a Phoenician form of the 129 system, avoiding the sexagesimal multiples.

00The following tables are given as illustrations of the arrangement adopted elsewhere in this article; the entries in any column denote multiples or submultiples of the unit stated at the head of the column, and the entries in any row give the expression of one unit in terms of the other units.

00In the problems of celestial mechanics the angles within the parentheses are represented by sums or differences of multiples of the mean longitudes of the planets as they move round their orbits.

00During the republican period the number of pontifices increased, probably by multiples of three, until after Sulla (82 B.C.) we find them fifteen; for the year 57 B.C. we have a complete list of them in Cicero (Harusp. resp. 6, 12).

00A flower is said to be symmetrical when each of its whorls consists of an equal number of parts, or when the parts of any one whorl are multiples of that preceding it.

00They then either remain united in fours, or multiples of four, as in some acacias, Periploca graeca and Inga anomala, or separate into individual grains, which by degrees become mature pollen.

00The upper ceiling of the market is dictated more by income multiples rather than interest rates at the present time.

00The fact is that entry controls have frozen the sector to the benefit of a handful of big pharmacy multiples.

00On account of this difficulty, the atomic weights published by Dalton, and the more accurate ones of Berzelius, were not always identical with the values now accepted, but were often simple multiples or submultiples of these.

00In the top squares of the slips the ten digits are written, and each slip contains in its nine squares the first nine multiples of the digit which appears in the top square.

00The slips thus placed in contact give the multiples of the number 2085, the digits in each parallelogram being added together; for example, corresponding to the number 6 on the right-hand slip, we have o, 8+3, 0+4, 2, i; whence we find o, I, 5, 2, r as the digits, written backwards, of 6X2085.

00The use of the slips for the purpose of multiplication is now evident; thus to multiply 2085 by 736 we take out in this manner the multiples corresponding to 6, 3, 7, and set down the digits as they are obtained, from right to left, shifting them back one place and adding up the columns as in ordinary multiplication, viz.

00Each of the four faces of each rod contains multiples of one of the nine digits, and is similar to one of the slips just described, the first rod containing the multiples of o, I, 9, 8, the second of o, 2, 9, 7, the third of o, 3, 9, 6, the fourth of 0, 4, 9, 5, the fifth of I, 2, 8, 7, the sixth of I, 3, 8, 6, the seventh of I, 4, 8, 5, the eighth of 2, 3, 7, 6, the ninth of 2, 4, 7, 5, and the tenth of 3, 4, 6, 5.

00Each rod therefore contains on two of its faces multiples of digits which are complementary to those on the other two faces; and the multiples of a digit and of its complement are reversed in position.

00It will be noticed that the rods only give the multiples of the number which is to be multiplied, or of the divisor when they are used for division, and it is evident that they would be of little use to any one who knew the multiplication table as far as 9 X9.

00In multiplications or divisions of any length it is generally convenient to begin by forming a table of the first nine multiples of the multiplicand or divisor, and Napier's bones at best merely provide such a table, and in an incomplete form, for the additions of the two figures in the same parallelogram have to be performed each time the rods are used.

00The magnetic and electric forces are directed alternately in one direction and the other, and at distances which are called multiples of a wave length the force is in the same direction at the same time, but in the case of damped waves h.as not quite the same intensity.

00When a homogeneous polynomial is transformed by general linear substitutions as hereafter explained, and is then expressed in the original form with new coefficients affecting the new variables, certain functions of the new coefficients and variables are numerical multiples of the same functions of the original coefficients and variables.

00Then a binary n", equated to zero, represents n straight lines through the origin, and the x, y of any line through the origin are given constant multiples of the sines of the angles which that line makes with two fixed lines, the axes of co-ordinates.

00We need therefore consider numerical quantities only, our results being applicable to numbers by regarding the digits as representing multiples of units in different denominations.

00For Multiplication And Division We Use A Multiplication Table, Which Is A Multiple Table, Arranged As Explained In § 36, And Giving The Successive Multiples, Up To 9 Times Or Further, Of The Numbers From 1 (Or Better, From O) To 10, 12 Or 20.

00The Column (Vertical) Headed 3 Will Give The Multiples Of 3, While The Row (Horizontal) Commencing With 3 Will Give The Values Of 3 X 1, 3 X 2, ...

00It Is Usually Convenient To Make Out A Preliminary Table Of Multiples Up To Io Times; The Table Being Checked At 5 Times (§ Ioo) And At 10 Times.

00The table of multiples will then be as in C. The next step is to arrange the multiplier and the multiplicand above the partial products.

00Beyond the fun stuff, you and some friends can consider pitching in for a big ticket item, such as a stroller or swingset designed for multiples.

00The variety of bear colors also make this a fun theme possibility for a mom-to-be of multiples.

00For parents of multiples or for parents whose children may sleep in multiple locations around the home, these monitors can offer peace of mind without any hassle.

00Most of the listings only allow you to buy tickets in multiples of two, but there are plenty of tickets available.

00Purchasing multiples of common cat supplies can become rather expensive, especially if you're in the habit of buying the best of everything.

00Auto Fill Mode eases the job of cutting multiples of the same shape.

00You're the parent of multiples and want each child to have his own baby book.

00They also perform swaps, which are groups that make multiples of their work so they can be swapped with other scrapbookers.

00No specifics were given about the actress' condition, however, older women (Cross is 44) and those carrying multiples are often more likely to get a bed rest order than younger women.

00People sometimes forgo buying in bulk because they reason that purchasing items in multiples is simply a waste of money.

00Get multiples while you're there or make copies of the receipts before you send them in.

00Following the birth of multiples, the placenta is carefully examined to determine if they are fraternal or identical.

00Britt. "Do reduced multiples do better?"

00Twins and other birth multiples also skew birth order predictions.

00For the single birth children born after twins or other multiples, birth order is skewed because the twins or multiples have become special children and, in the case of multiples, are their own birth order unit.

00Prematurity is much more common in pregnancy of multiples and for mothers who have a history of miscarriages or prior premature birth.

00Most common is the purchase of ready-made, store-bought thank you cards; these can be single cards or in multiples.

00Whenever the Chinese give gifts, they do so in multiples.

00One word of caution when shopping, especially online--while the rule of thumb is to buy the same size clothes as you wore before you got pregnant, you may find this rule does not apply to you, especially if you are expecting multiples.

00However, if you're carrying multiples or have gained more than the recommended 25-35 pounds, you may need a larger than average size.

00If you are pregnant with multiples, you should be eating an extra 500-600 calories a day.

00If you are carrying multiples, you will want to gain about 5-10 extra pounds for each baby you're carrying.

00While multiple births are commonly delivered sooner than a single birth, full term is considered 36 to 37 weeks for multiples.

00A second heartbeat may be heard as early as 8 weeks, but generally a mother expecting multiples will know by around week 12.

00Multiples can actually increase how much sleep your body requests.

00By their very nature, a multiples pregnancy is considered high risk.

00Some physicians will counsel that inducing labor or a caesarean section are your only options with multiples.

00The challenges of raising high-order multiples (triplets or more) starts even before they are born and continue well into childhood and even the teenage years.

00According to the March of Dimes, almost all high-order multiples are born before 37 weeks gestation and the average length of pregnancies goes down with each additional baby.

00Some moms of high-order multiples are able to breastfeed their children, although most are not able to exclusively breastfeed.

00Some moms of multiples are able to breastfeed two babies at a time, and the other babies may be fed pumped breast milk or formula at that feeding.

00Some families with high-order multiples enlist grandparents, relatives, and friends to help care for the babies in the early weeks.

00In a family with multiples, structure and routine are a requirement.

00Two approaches in particular appear to increase the potential for multiples in a pregnancy.

00Gradually, the growth rate begins to slow for multiples.

00If the multiples are identical, only one chorion membrane is present.

00Fraternal multiples each have their own membrane, making the pregnancy less dangerous.
