A HIGHER.

X

Reduce 10oz. 15dwt. 22gr. to the decimal of a th. 22 gr.=?i dwt.=.916dwt. Therefore, 15dwt. 22gr.=15.916dwt.=15.916oz. =79583oz. Then, 10oz. 15dwt. 22gr.=10.79583oz.=10.7958 38. =.899652716.

COMPOUND DIVISION.

EXAMPLE FOR THE BOARD.

yd. ft. in. Divide 19yd. 2ft. 9in. by 5. Dividing the 5)19 - 26 9

19yd. we have a quotient of 3yd. with a re

mainder, 4yd. The 4yd. undivided, are equi3 " 2 " 113

valent to 12ft., which, added to the 2ft. make 14ft. 14ft. -5=2ft. with a remainder, 4ft. The 4ft. undivided, are equal to 48 inches, which, added to the 9 inches, make 57 inches. 57 in. -5=11; in.

RULE. First divide the highest denomination. Whenever there is any remainder, reduce it to the next lower denomination, and add it to the number (if any) already in that denomination. Then divide as before, and so proceed until the division is completed. If both the divisor and the dividend are compound numbers, reduce them to the same denomination, and divide as in simple division.
