REDUCTION OF FEDERAL MONEY. The changing of numbers from one name to another, without altering their value, is called Reduction.

EXAMPLES

1. Reduce 148 dollars to cents and millş. Thus, 14800 cents. To reduce dollars to cents, mul

148000 mills. tiply by 100, because I dollar = 100 cents. That is, we annex 2 ciphers, and the whole will be cents. (See Rule for multiplying by 10, 100, fc. pagę 37.) And to reduce cents to mills, we annex 1 cipher, and the whole will be mills : therefore to change dollars to mills, we annex 3 ciphers.

2. In 1386 dollars 8 cents, how many cents ? Thus, 138608 centş. Anş.

Therefore, if the sum.

consists of dollars and cents, join them together as a whole number, and the whole will be cents. (In this example, the cents being less than 10, we write a cipher before them, or in the tens' place, which must always be done in like cases.) And, if the sum consists of dollars, cents and mills, join them together in like

manner, and they will express so many mills. Thus, 25 dollars, 41 cents, 5 mills = 25415 mills. 3. In 138608 cents, how many dollars and cents ?

To reduce cents to dolThus, $1386, 08 = 1386 dols. 08 cents. Ans.

lars, we divide by 100, be

cause 100 cents = 1 dollar. (See Rule for dividing by 10, 100, fc. page 48.) That is, we cut off 2 figures to the right hand, and those on the left hand will be dollars; and to reduce mills to dollars, we point off three figures to the right; and those on the left will be dollars, and those on the right will be cents and mills.

Thus, 25415 mills =$25,41,5, or 25 dols. 41 cts. 5 m. 4. Reduce 125 dollars to cents. Ans. 12500 cents. 5. Reduce 12550 cents to dollars. Ans. 6. Reduce 568 dollars, 9 cents, to cents.

Ans. 125009 mills.

DIVISION OF FEDERAL MONEY.

RULE.

Write down the given sum, and divide as in whole numbers ; the quotient will be the answer in the lowest name in the given dividend.

EXAMPLES. 1. If 3 yards of cloth cost 12 dols. 75 cts., what is that á yard ? Operation.

$12,75 is 1275 cts.,

which 3)1275 cts.

we divide by 3, as a whole Ans. 425=4 dols. 25 cts. number, and the quotient is

425 cents, which reduced to dollars, is 4 dollars 25 cents, the Answer. 2. Divide 21 dollars 6 cents equally among 12 men. Operation.

21 dols. 6 cts. is 2106 12)2106,0

cents, which we divide by

$ cts. mills 12, and there is a remainAns. 1755 mills.=1,75,5 der, which, by annexing à cipher, makes 60 mills, in which 12 is contained 5 times, and the quotient is 1755 mills ; which being reduced to dollars, is 1 dollar 75 cents 5 mills. 3. Divide 230 dollars equally among 16 men.

We divide $230 by 16, and the quo16)230(14,375 tient is $14, and a remainder of $6, 16

which we reduce to cents by annexing

2 ciphers. We divide again, and the 70

quotient is 37 cts. and the remainder 8 64

cents. We then reduce 8 cents to mills

by annexing 1 cipher, and dividing again 600 gives 5 mills.

Thus the answer is 14 48

dollars 37 cents 5 mills. 120

But we may if we please, reduce 112

$230 to mills 230000 mills ; then

divide by 16, and the quotient will be 80

14375 mills; which reduced to dollars 80

is = 14 dollars 37 cents 5 mills ; the Answer:
