4 8 9 of pence, and find the sum to be 30.

OPERATION.

11 But 30 pence are equal to 2 shillings 156 17 10 and 6 pence: we therefore write

£189 ls 6d. down the 6 and carry 2 to the shillings. We then find the sum of the shillings to be 41: that is, 2 pounds and 1 shilling over. Carrying the 2 to the column of pounds, we find the sum to be 189.

$71. Addition of denominate numbers, like that of simple numbers, teaches how to express the value of several numbers by a single one, which is called their sum.

RULE.

1. Set down the numbers to be added so that all the denominations of the same kind shall stand in the same column.

II. Begin with the column of the lowest denomination, and add it up as in whole numbers.

JII. Then consider how many units of this denomination make one unit of the next higher, and divide the sum by this number. Write down the remainder under the units of its kind, and carry the quotient to the next column, as in addition of simple numbers.

IV. Proceed in the same way for all the columns to the last, and set down the entire sum of the last column.

The proof is the same as in the addition of simple numbers.

Q. What is Addition of Denominate Numbers? How do you set down the numbers for Addition? Where do you begin to add ? What do you do with the first sum ? What do you write down? What do you carry to the next column? How do you prove Addition ?

EXAMPLES.

1. What is the sum of £16 18s 9d, £14 138 8d, and £15 17s 6d ?

OPERATION. NOTE.-In simple numbers 10

£ S d units of any one of the columns,

16 18 9 make one unit of the next left hand column § 8. We therefore carry

14 13 8 one for every 10. But in denomi

15 17 6 nate numbers the higher denomi Sum 47 9 11 nations are formed differently. For

30 11 2 example, 12 pence make 1 shilling,

Proof 47 9 11 the unit of the next higher denomination; and 20 shillings make 1 pound. In passing from pence to shillings, we must therefore carry 1 for every 12, and 1 for every 20 in passing from shillings to pounds. And in general, we must carry 1 for so many units of the lower denomination as make one unit of the next higher.

Q. In simple numbers how many units of one order make one unit of the next higher order? How do you carry in simple numbers? How do you carry in passing from pence to shillings? In passing from shillings to pounds ? Generally, how do you carry ?
