I ask what number added to 3 will Suppose that I know, of course, that the answer to this prodiice 7. is 4, and Lhe operation of getting 4 is called subtracting 3 from 7, and we denote it by a sign and write it 7-3;= 4.

4; Thus we have the result be further divided by 15. numbers may be considerably calculation of the shortened. 6 by of course 5 2, so that we . 6. This has to finally get 5 . 3 or Similarly, to calculate IT6 113. 6 by 1 2 3 or 6, and we get simply 4 5 or 20. To write down our expression for (a + b) n we re we have . .
