Testing whether the list still works.

RMP 24 in the translation of T. Eric Peet and my
simplified notation (for example '2 instead of 1/2),
adapted to the graphic possibilities of this forum:

A quantity whose seventh part is added to it becomes 19.

/1 -- 7
/'7 -- 1

1 -- 8
/2 -- 16
'2 -- 4
/'4 -- 2
/'8 -- 1

/1 -- 2 '4 '8
/2 -- 4 '2 '4
/4 -- 9 '2

The doing as it occurs: - The quantity is 16 '2 '8 /
one seventh is 2 '4 '8 / Total 19

Interpretation follows in the next message (if this one
gets through, that is).
