By this means, if he can add any two numbers together, both under 10, he may be taught to add any number smaller than 10 to any number larger than 10. * The following may be added by calling each finger a figure. Bhould be exercised, lest the learner give the total amount from the book, without making the individual additions for himself. 34.
