...account of the numerator being less than the denominator. The consequence of this is, that to multiply **both the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same number, does not** alter its value; and, therefore, to convert a vulgar fraction into a decimal one, we have only to multiply... | |

...We may also represent the value of any fraction in an infinite variety of .ways. For if we multiply **both the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same number,** which may be taken at pleasure, the value of the fraction will not be altered; and for this reason... | |

...same number, without destroying the proportion. For ratios are fractions, and to multiply or divide **the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same number does not** alter its value. Thus from the proportions 6 : 9 : : 10 : 15 we have 4 : f : : 10X2 : 15X2. Apply the... | |
