REDUCTION OF FEDERAL MONEY. Federal money is decimally divided. The learner having acquired a competent knowledge of decimals will readily see the propriety of the following rules, for reducing Federal Money. CASE I. To reduce dollars to cents. RULE. Annex two ciphers to 'the dollars, and the whole will be cents. EXAMPLES. Reduce $ 956 to cents. Answer 95600 cents. In $ 4736, how many cents ? 47 3600 In $ 9735, how many cents ? 97 3500 CASE II. To reduce dollars to mills. Rule. Annex three ciphers to the dollars, the whole will be mills. Note. This and case IX. prove each other. EXAMPLES. In $596, how many mills? Answer 596000 mills. In $ 7369, how many mills ? 7369000 In $ 4362, how many mills ? 4362000 CASE III. RULE. Take away the separating point from between the dollars and cents, and the whole will be cents. Note. This and Case VIII. prove each other. EXAMPLES In $ 4,36, 75, how many cents ? Answer 43675 cents. In $ 964, 31, how inany cents ? 96431 In $ 493, 50, how many cents ? 49350 CASE IV. RULE.

Ans. $ 4739,16,4 537112 537,11,2 4364743 4364,74,3 Note, This and Case V. prove each other. REDUCTION OF CURRENCIES, which are not decimally divided, as pounds, shillings, pence, &c. or of weights, measures, &c; as, tons, hundreds, quarters, &c; pounds, ounces, penny-weights, and grains, &c. Observe this one general rule. 1. If high denominations are to be reduced to lower, multiply the highest denomination given, by as many of the next lower, as make one of this highest. 2. If any figures stand in the place of the next lower denomination, they must be taken in, or added to the product, as in proving Division. 3. If it be required to reduce it still lower, multiply it by as many of the next lower denomination, as are equal to one of this last ; and if any figures stand in the next lower to this, they must be taken in, or added to this product, as above, &c. 4. If low denominations, are to be reduced to high, divide the lowest given, by as many of that denomination, as are equal to one of the next higher. 5. If still higher be required, divide this quotient by as many of its denomination, as are equal to one of the next higher, &c. 6. If any figures remain in any of these divisions, they are so many of the same denomination, you was then dividing, which must be put each in its proper place, after the highest denomination required is obtained, and you will have the highest, and all its lower denominations in their due order.

According to the preceding Rule, this last exampie is to be multiplied by 20, to bring it into shillings ; and then (as there are 2 81x-penccs in one shilling, these shillings are to be multiplied by 2. But as there are 40. six-pences in a pound, it may be more speedily performed, by multiplying the pounds by 40. 9.

Reduce £ 57 11 74 to six-pences, three-pences, pence and farthings, and let the number of pence be double the number of farthings ; the three-pences, double the number of pence ; and the six-pences double the number of three-pençes.
