" The word multiplication is sometimes used in mathematics, particularly in multiple algebra, to denote any distributive operation expressed by one symbol upon any quantity or any thing expressed by another symbol. Corresponding extensions of meaning are given to the words multiply, multiplier, multiplicand, and product. Thus, since x + y) = x + y (see under Distributive), where x + y), x, and y indicate the results of any distributive operation represented by the symbol x + y, x, and y, severally, then because of many very useful analogies x + y) is called the product of x + y, and the operation indicated by multiplication. Cf. Facient, n., 2."  [1913 Webster]
•  An increase above the normal number of parts, especially of petals; augmentation.  [1913 Webster]
