In arithmetic he was the first to expound the theory of means and of proportion as applied to commensurable quantities.

The history of logarithms is the story of a correspondence (in modern terms, a group isomorphism) between multiplication on the positive real numbers and addition on the real number line that was formalized in seventeenth century Europe and was widely used to simplify calculation until the advent of the digital computer.

The Napierian logarithms were published first in The exam was open book, which could be a trap as a person could bring too many reference books and get bogged down hunting information to solve the problems on the exam.

In those days, the PE exam was long-answer, show all work, cite references if used, and do 4 problems in the morning and 4 more in the afternoon. John Napier () invented several mechanical methods to simplify and speed up the arithmetic calculations, especially multiplication.

His most famous invention was his Napier Rods, later known as Napier’s Bones. Pierre Petit improved on Napier’s Bones by devising an arithmetic cylinder using long bands of paper strips with all of the. The slide rule, also known colloquially in the United States as a slipstick, is a mechanical analog computer.

As graphical analog calculators, slide rules are closely related to nomograms, but the former are used for general calculations, whereas the latter are used for application-specific computations. The slide rule is used primarily for multiplication and division, and also for functions.

Anyway, the real life story of Nathaniel Bowditch is fascinating in any case.
