REDUCTION, TEACHES bring or change numbers from one name to another, without altering their value. Reduction is either Descending or Ascending. Descending, is when great names are brought into small, as pounds into shillings, days into hours, &c.—This is done by Multiplication. Ascending, is when small names are brought into great, is shillings into pounds, hours into days, &c. This is perormed by Division. REDUCTION DESCENDING. RULE.—Multiply the highest denomination given by so many of the next less as make one of that greater, and thus continue till you lave brought it down as low as your question requires. Proof. Change the order of the question, and divide your last voduct by the last multiplier, and so on. EXAMPLES. £ 4)24758 Ans. 24759. d. qros. 24758 farthings. Note.
