Página 61 - And, if the logarithm of any number be divided by the index of its root, the quotient will be equal to the logarithm of that root. Thus the index or logarithm of 64 is 6 ; and, if this number be divided by 2, the quotient will be = 3, which is the logarithm of 8, or the square root of 64.
