Thb object of this book is to provide a complete course in Elementary Algebra that will satisfy the requirements of courses of study in various states and of the College Entrance Board. Vitality has been givn to the subject by imbuing it with the interest that accrues from connection with problems of everyday life and by careful correlation with arithmetic. The utility of algebra is emphasized from the start by showing how much easier it is to solve certain problems by algebra than by arithmetic. Simplicity is the keynote of the book. This effect is gained by omitting exercises of imdue difficulty as well as troublesome phases of the subject that are not essential. A careful development of each new principle anticipates difficulties; and abimdant illustrations and examples give further emphasis to the point at issue. The easy oral exercises assist in developing and fixing in mind the principles and processes. The written exercises are very abundant and range from the simplest type to some of sufficient difficulty to test the pupils power and to provide adequate drill. Many of the exercises are taken from entrance examination questions set by various colleges and universities, the source being indicated in all such cases. The problems are practical and varied. They include applications to geometry, physics, engineering, agriculture and commerce, and various interests of everyday life.
