COMPOUND SUBTRACTION, TEACHES to find the difference, inequality, or excess, between any two sums of diverse denominations. RULE.- Place those numbers under each other, which are of the samo denomination, the loss being below the greater ; begin with the least denomination, and if it exceed the figure over it, borrow as many units as make one of the next greater; subtract it thorefrom; and to the difference add the upper figure, remembering always to add one to the next superior denomination for that which you borrowed. Note. The method of proof is the same as in simple subtraction EXAMPLES. 1. Sterling Money. (2.) £. s. d. From 346 16 5 3 · 14 14 6 2 94 11 6 Take 128 17 4 2 10 19 6 3 36 14 8 12.
