COMPOUND DIVISION, TEACHES to find how often one number is contained m1 another of different denominations. DIVISION OF FEDERAL MONEY. Any sum in Federal Money may be divided as a whole number; for, if dollars and cents be written down as a simple number, the whole will be cents ; and if the sum consists of dollars only, annex two ciphers to the dollars, and the whole will be cents ; hence the following B General Rule.-Write down the given sum in cents, and divide us in whole numbers; the quotient will be the answer 111 cents. Note. If the cents in the given sum arm ijan 19, you must always place a cipher on their left, or in 1 979. Art the certs ocfore you write them down. t8IMPLES. 1. Divide 35 dollars 68 cents, by 41. 41)3568(87 the quotient in cents ; and when then 328 is any considerable remainder, you may annex a cipher to it, if you please, and 238 divide it again, and you will have tłu 287 mills, &c.

To divide thc denominations of Sterling Money Weights, Measures, fic. *Rule.-Begin with the highest denomination as in simple divis:u.: ; nd it any thing remains, find how many of the next lower denomi lion this remainder is equal to ; which add to the next denomination : then divide again, carrying the reinainder, if any, as beforo ; and so on till the whole is finished. · Proof. The same as in simple Division. EXAMPLES. £ 5. d. Tr. . £ s. d. Divide 97 3 2 by 5 8)27 18 0 Quo't. £19 8 9 2 £3 993 £ S. d. £ $. d. 3. Divide 31 11 6 by 2 Ans. 15 15 9 * 4. Divide 22 3 9 by 3 5.

When the divisor exceeds 12, and is the product of two or more numbers in the table multiplied together. RULE.-Divide by one of those numbers first, and the quotient by he other, and the last quotient will be the answer. EXAMPLES. £ s. d. £ s. il. 1. Divide 29 15 O by 21 Ans. 1 8 1 2.
