sample: 1. MULTIPLICATION, is that by which we multiply two numbers, by one another, that their product may be discovered.

2. Multiplication hath three parts, the Multiplicand, the Multiplicator and the Product.

3. The Multiplicand is the number given to be multiplied. The Multiplicator is the number by which the Multiplicand is multiplied, and the Product is the number produced by the Multiplication: So if 7 be given to be multipled by 4, the third number which is produced is 28, for 4 times 7 is 28; and here 7 is the Multiplicand, 4 the Multiplicator, and 28 the Product. (p. 12)
