Here are 50 cents to the right hand of dollars, therefore you must point off two figures in the product for cents, and all to the left of the cents are dollars. If cents and mills are given, point off one figure for mills, and all the rest are cents. If dimes and cents are given, point off one figure for cents, and the figures to the left hand are dimes. If dollars and dimes are given, point off one figure as before, and all the rest are dollars. If eagles and dollars are given, point off one figure to the right hand, as before directed, in the product, and all to the left hand are eagles, and to the right dollars.
