Computation; it proceeds by rules and operations, fimilar to thofe in common Arithmetic, but more general and extenfive; it is grounded upon the fame principles as Geometry, and therefore, is no lefs clear and convincing; it is likewife more general than Geometry, inafmuch as its rules comprehend both Arithmetic and Geometry, including both fciences in one: its great excellency, is to difcover fuch truths, by inveftigation, as would in vain be fought for by any other means. In Geometry, truth mufl be known before it can be demonftrated; whereas it is difcovered in Algebra, and the difcovery is more advantageous than demonftration, becaufe it leads the reader to find others not known to him before. To proceed'With fr1e;thod, in fo exten- f1ve a fcience, it is neceflary to explain the principles upon which it is built, in as clear and concife a manner as the fub- jedt will admit; and which muft be well remembered, in order to underftand perfectly what follows. §. 2. Quantity being whatever may be meafured, numbered, or eftimated; numbers are nothing but certain figns or figures, invented to reprefent the order or relation between quantities of the fame- kind; fo that whatever quantity is referred to unity, the numbers 2, 3, 4, denote twice, thrice, four times that quantity. §. 3. Any part of a quantity may be referred to unity; as for example, a fe cond, minute, or hour of time; an inch, foot, or yard of length; a fquare, or a cubic inch, foot or yard, of furfaces or folids. §.4. In Algebra, thefe relations are exprefled in a more general manner, by letters, a, b,c,d; fo that whatever quantity is referred to unity, a or b denotes as ' 1 'f 'ft ". many time! that quantity, as there are units fuppofed Books, , A-New-System-of-Mathematics~~John-Muller, , , , , , , , , , Kessinger Publishing Company
