Excerpt from Mental Arithmetic<br><br>The purpose of mental arithmetic is to enable pupils to perform the Simple computations which occur daily in business life, to introduce them to the art of reasoning, and to train them to think on their feet.<br><br>In writing this book the authors have aimed to give a large number and variety of easy exercises in the essentials of arithmetic; namely, the four funda mental rules, fractions, decimals, simple measure ments, and per cent. They have kept to the core of the subject and have not allowed themselves to be diverted by the methods and practices of other text-book writers on this subject. Accordingly, conundrums which have done service for generations have been omitted. The hound no longer chases the hare; the fish with large head and long tail swims undisturbed in the briny deep; the ass and the mule sigh no more over their heavy burdens.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
