COMPOUND ADDITION, IS the adding of several numbers together, having dif ferent denominations, but of the same generic kind, 110 pounds, shillings and pence, &c. Tuns, hundreds, quace

ters, &c.

RULE.-1. Place the numbers so that those of the same denomina tion may stand directly under each other.

2. Add the first column or denomination together, as in whole num. bers; then divide the sum by as many of the same denomination av make one of the next greater; setting down the remainder under the column added, and carry the quotient to the next superior denomination, continuing the same to the last, which add, as in simple addition.*

1. STERLING MONEY,

Is the money

of account in Great-Britain, and is reckoned in Pounds, Shillings, Pence and Farthings. See the Pence Tables.

* The reason of this rule is evident: For, addition of this money, as I in the pence is equal to 4 in the farthings; 1 in the shillings, to 12 in the pence; and 1 in the pounds, to 20 in the shillings; therefore carrying as di rected, is the arranging the money, arising from each column, properly in the scale of denominations : and this reasoning will hold good in the ad. dition of compound numbers of any denomination whatever.
