For example, in the hundreds we have: 8(=2x4), 45(=5x9), 48(=8x6); here a = 4.

An there would arise n\ unequal, but differing as little as possible, sums of the form maxal-\-ma%a2+ . . +manan (op a 2 ,. , a„ are the number-names of objects, taken by the 1st, 2nd . , nth person, respectively). For n = 4 it is possible to take, for example ax = 1, a2 = 2, a3 = 3, a4 = 4 and the multipliers m1:l, 2, 5, 15 (see [30] Ch. 12). The Extraction of Roots of Multidigit Numbers By making use of a number of simple procedures, it is fairly easy to extract mentally odd roots from numbers which are exact powers of two-digit or even three-digit numbers.

32 36 39 310 1,113911 < log 1,3<1,113979. Try to calculate in this way the logarithm of this or that number and compare the result obtained with the value of that logarithm, taken from the logarithmic tables. § 9. Numerical Giants In physics, chemistry, and astronomy, numerical "giants" and "dwarfs" are often encountered; for example, distances from the earth to the nearest stars are of the order of 1013 to 1014 km, the radius of an atom is of the order of 10" 8 cm, the number of molecules in one gram-molecule of a substance equals 6 x 1023 approximately (Avogadro's number).
