ADDITION IS the putting together of two or more numbers, so as their total value may be known by one sum.

SIMPLE ADDITION Is the putting together of several whole numbers of one de nomination.

In placing your numbers, observe to set units exactly under units, tens under tens, hundreds under hundreds, &c. and then observe the following

RULE. Having drawn a line under the numbers to be added, begin with the row of units ; add the figures together ; consider how many tens there are in the row ; set down the excess, if any, directly under the place of units, and for every ten carry one to the next row or place of tens. Proceed in the same manner with each row; and your work, having set down the whole şumzof the last row, will be done.

SUBTRACTION IS the taking of a less number from a greater, to show the difference. And, like addition, it is simple and compound.

SIMPLE SUBTRACTION Is the finding of the difference of two numbers of the like sind, by taking the less from the greater,

RULR. Place the less number under the greater, and observe to set, exactly, units under units, tens under tens, hundreds under hundreds, &c. Draw a line underneath ; and, beginning at the right hand, or place of units, take the lower line from the upper, or the less number from the greater. If the figure, in the lower line, in the place of units, be greater than the one in the upper line, you must borrow ten from the place of tens, and add them to the figure in the upper line ; then take the figure in the lower line from this sum; set down the excess, above ten, in the place of units, and carry one, for the ten you hor. rowed, to the row of figures, in the place of tens, in the lower line. In this manner, proceed carefully with every row, and your work will be complete.

To prove Subtraction, you may add the remainder to the less sumber : If your work be right, the aggregate will be like the greater number.
