definition. Thus, we count the number of letters in all the definitions and assign
position number 1 to the definition with the smallest number of letters. We assign
position number 2 to the definition with the next smallest number of letters, and
proceed in this way to assign positions to all of the definitions. If two or more
definitions have the same number of letters, we assign their positions on the basis
of the alphabetical order of the letters in each. Therefore, each definition will have
its own position number.

example, suppose 17 has been assigned to the definition of divisible by five. Then
17 does nothave the characteristic described. On the other hand, if 14 has been
assigned to the definition divisible by seven, then 14 doeshave this characteristic.
