therefore divide as in whole numbers, and from the right hand of the quotient point off so many places for decimals, as the decimal places

in the dividend exceed those in the divisor.

2. If the places in the quotient be not so many as the rule requires, supply the defect by prefixing ciphers to the left hand of said quotient.

Nore.-If the decimal places in the divisor be more than those in the dividend, annex as many ciphers to the dividend as you please, so as to make it equal, (at least,) to the divisor. Or, if there be a remainder, you may annex ciphers to it, and carry on the quotient to any degree of exactness
