We have put the first example, however, in periments than by reading about many. As, however, there is the fractional form, in order to indicate clearly the fact that difficulty in procuring and suspending ivory balls, the experiments the ratio of the two quantities of the same kind (acres in this can be tried in a simpler way with common glass marbles. Lay case) is an abstract number, by which the other quantity, the two thin strips of wood along a smooth surface, like the top of a £95, is multiplied. When we state the question in the second table, and adjust their distance so that a marble may just roll way, and talk about multiplying the means and extremes along between them; or, better still, cut a small groove in which together, some ccnfusion might arise from the idea of multithe marbles may run. One marble may then be laid in the plying 37 acres by £95. The fact to be borne in mind is that groove, and another made to strike it gently. The latter will the rule is merely the expression of the fact that the ratios of come almost to rest, while the other will move.
