DIVISION OF FEDERAL MONEY.

Any sum in Federal Money may be divided as a wnole number ; for, if dollars and cents be written down as a simple number, the whole will be cents ; and if the sum consists of dollars only, annex two « i phers to the dollars, and the whole will be cents ; hence the following

GENERAL RULE. Write down the given sum in cents, and divide as in whole numbers ; the quotient will be the answer in cents.

NOTE. If the cents in the given sum are less than 10, you must always place a« ipher on their left, or in the ten's place of the cents, before you write them down.

EXAMPLES. 1. Divide 35 dollars 68 cents, by 41. 41)3568(87 the quotient in cents; and when there 328 is any considerable remainder, you may

annex a ci cher to it, if you please, and 288

divide it again, and you will have the 287 mills, &c.

Rem. 1 2 Divide 21 dollars,5 cents, by 14. 14)2105(150 centsal dol. 50 cts. but to bring cents 14 into dollars, you need only point off two
