This work in intended for Business Colleges, Schools and for all who desire a thorough preparation for the duties of a commercial life, and who have had such previous training in the elementary rules as will enable them to enter on a higher course intelligently and profitably.
The work embraces a treatment of all the subjects necessary to give a student a thoroughly practical and scientific arithmetical education.
Attention is particularly directed to the following features:
1. To the clearness and conciseness of the definitions, solutions, and rules, the latter of which are logically deduced from preceding solutions.
2. To the many short methods in addition, multiplication, division, etc.
3. To the numerous solutions, and the large number of exercises, the practical character of which, we have no doubt, will commend them to all teachers. The authors hope that, in this important particular, a long felt want will be supplied.
4. To the thorough treatment of Percentage, and its applications in Interest, Discount, Partial Payments, Equation of Accounts, etc.
