CIDE DICTIONARY

alligationn. [L. alligatio.].
  •  The act of tying together or attaching by some bond, or the state of being attached.  [1913 Webster]
  •  A rule relating to the solution of questions concerning the compounding or mixing of different ingredients, or ingredients of different qualities or values.  [1913 Webster]
    " The rule is named from the method of connecting together the terms by certain ligature-like signs. Alligation is of two kinds, medial and alternate; medial teaching the method of finding the price or quality of a mixture of several simple ingredients whose prices and qualities are known; alternate, teaching the amount of each of several simple ingredients whose prices or qualities are known, which will be required to make a mixture of given price or quality."  [1913 Webster]
