3.2 Multiplying and dividing

To multiply and divide by 10, 100, 1000, etc., write the digits in their place value columns. To multiply, move the digits to the left (replacing the numbers on the right with zeros) and to divide move them to the right (putting in a decimal point, and any zeros necessary for the place value).

Multiplication and division by whole numbers in general can be carried out by combining this technique with a knowledge of the multiplication tables up to 10.

3.4 Binding precedent

Not everything in a court case sets a precedent. The contents of a case report can be divided into two categories:

  • 1. The reason for the decision – ratio decidendi

  • The ratio decidendi of a case is not the actual decision, like ‘guilty’ or ‘the defendant is liable to pay compensation’. The precedent is set by the rule of law used by the judge or judges in deciding the legal problem raised by the facts of the case

Worship Service Live - 7/20/14 - Craig Kocher
Worship service for the Sixth Sunday After Pentecost. How does God distinguish good from evil? The story of Jacob in Genesis challenges common understandings of what we may commonly understand as "good" in that Jacob is set apart to bear the promise of God despite his capacity for deceit and trickery. In the gospel lesson from Matthew, Jesus tells the parable of the wheat and the weeds. This parable suggests that the seeds of evil and good can grow up together and be difficult to distinguish.

Why Social Democracy is Failing Europe

There is a certain tension in the phrase, “social democracy,” and the description of someone as a social democrat. Social in this context is socialism by the state. A democrat supports the freedom for individual electors to express and defend personal interests in regular plebiscites. The two positions are incompatible.

At this point we should note that in economic terms there is little philosophical difference between European socialism and communism. Both seek to relieve capitali

3.5 Maths in archaeology

In several different parts of the world, footprints from prehistoric human civilisations have been found preserved in either sand or volcanic ash. From these tracks it is possible to measure the foot length and the length of the stride. These measurements can be used to estimate both the height of the person who made the footprint and also whether the person was walking or running by using the following three formulas:
