PREFACE.

SOME years ago the writer wrote a little book on Arithmetic, similar in design to the present "Notes on Algebra." Encouraged by the fact that the earlier book survived the perils of its birth and reached a Second Edition, he has now attempted this further venture. These "Notes" must

not be considered to be an Algebraical treatise. They are to be employed with the Algebra at use in any school. The object aimed at is to present in a compendious form examples of sums worked out in a clear, uniform, and logical manner; and to give explanations of difficulties which an experience gained by many years' teaching has proved to stand in the way of the progress of the pupil. The following Articles may be omitted at a first reading, at the discretion of the teacher :

Art. 3; Note to Art. 17; Arts. 21, 24-25, 30, 32, 35-36, 38; Note to Art. 39; Art. 49; Note to Art. 54.

Qui s'excuse, s'accuse. For this reason the writer begs to apologize for the formidable list of errata to be found further on, without offering such explanations as might be possible. He asks the reader to correct the text by means of the "errata," and to shew his clemency by pointing out any further mistakes he may discover.
