Analysis.-We write like de nominations in the same colgal. qts. pts. gi. 33 2 1 3 umn and begin with the lowest 27 3 1 2 to subtract. 2 gi. from 3 gi. leaves 1 gi., which we write 5 3 0 1 under the column of gills. 1 pt. from 1 pt. leaves 0 pts., which we write under the column of pts. 3 qts. cannot be taken from 2 qts., so we increase 2 qts. by 1 gal., making 6 qts. 3 qts. from 6 qts. leaves 3 qts., which we write under the column of qts. Since we increased the minuend by 1 gal., we increase the subtrahend by 1 gal. 28 gal. from 33 gal. leaves 5 gal., which we write under the column of gallons.
