our product expresses one hundred times as many 2 as pur multiplicand, though of no greater value; because cenis express only the hundredths of a 100 do-lar. But from our rules given in multiplicaAns. 200 cts. tion, this work may be abridged; for to multiply by 100 we have only to annex two ciphers at the right of our multiplicand, and we have the product of our multiplicand, multiplied by one hundred; and to reduce 3 dollars to cents, we have only to annex at the right hand of the 2, two ciphers; for $2, by annexing two ciphers, stand thus, 200 cts.=2 dollars.--Now it must appear plain to the student, that as 1 dollar is 100 cts., and two dollars, 200 cts. ; $3 must be 300 cts., and 4 dollars, 400 ets., and so on. 2. Reduce 2 dollars to mills. Ans. 2000. $2 DEM.-It has already been proved that 100 multiplying by 100, reduces dollars to cents. And it is also evident that by multiplying 200 cents by ten, our product is mills; because we 10 want ten times the number of mills, that we have of cents, to equal our cents in value; Ans. 2000 mills. for one mill is only the tenth of a cent. But we may abridge our work by annexing three eiphers to the dollars; our product will then express mills, because a mill is the thousandth of a dollar, and annexing three ciphers to dollars, is multiplying the dollars by one thousand; thus, $2, by annexing three ciphers, becomes 2000 mills. 3. In $3 and 96 cents; how many cents ? Ans. 396 cts. $ cts. This may be shortened by annexing 3,96 the cents to the dollars; it will then 100 stand reduced to cents; thus, #3,96 cts. becomes by taking away the separatrix, 3 00 396 cents, because, joining the cents is Add the 96 multiplying the dollars by one hundred, and the cents have their proper places, Ans. 396 cts. counting the same that they do standing alone; thus, $4,56 cents, by taking away the separatrix, expresses 456 cents; the reason of this is plain, bé cause by annexing the cents the dollars have the place of hundreds. 4. In $4,91 cts. 3 mills; how many mills? Ans. 4913 mills. Note.- This is reduced to mills by taking away the separatrix and joining all the figures together, because dollars take the place of thousands, their proper local value when expressed in mills, and so on, of the rest. And to prove your work, you have only to place your sepatrix; thus, 4913 mills, proved $4,91 cts. 3 mills. 5. Reduce 36 dollars 95 cents and 4 mills, to mills. Ans. 36954 mills. 6.

ENGLISH MONEY.* 1 Shilling 1 Pound £. A Groat is four pence. Note.-Farthings are often written thus, 1 farthing. I of a penny, 2 farthings, of a penny, and 3 farthings, of a penny. * This is the money of account now in England. And it was the only mode of reckoning in the United States till after an act of Congress in 1792, establishing a mint and regulating the standard of our coins; but since, it has gradually grown out of use. EXAMPLES 1. In 4 pounds; how many shillings? Ans. 80s. e Dem.-It is plain, since it takes 20 4 shillings to make obe pound, that we 20 must have twenty times as many shil lings as pounds, to equal our pounds in Proof 210)810 s. Ans. value; and multiply £4, our multi plicand, by 20, our product expresses 4 £ twenty times as many as our multipli cand; and it should express 20 times as many, to equal the pounds in value; because a shilling is the twentieth of a pound. 2.

RULE.—Divide the given sum by that number which it requires of the given denomination, to make a unit in the next higher denomination; and so proceed, dividing in each operation the last quotient by the number which it requires to make a unit in the next higher, till you have reduced the given sum to the denomination required; the last quotient, with the several remainders, if any, will be the true answer. EXAMPLES 1. In 16qrs.; how many pence? Ans. 4d. 4 ) 16qrs. DEM.—The reason of our divi4d. Ans. ding by 4 is plain; because it takes four farthings to make a penny, Proof. 4 and one fourth the given number 1 6qrs. in pence must: equal the farthings in value; for every penny is equal to four farthings; and when we divide by 4; our quotient expresses one fourth part of our dividend, though the same in value; because a number in pence is equal to four times the same number in farthings. 2.

Od. 1qr: number, but the same in value; because any number of pence is equal to four times the same number in farthings; and when we divide the pence by twelve our quotient is one twelfth of our dividend in number, but the same in value; for any number of shillings is equal to twelve times the same number in pence. 3.
