and divisor, is termed Cancellation. It depends on the principle explained in Arts. 58 and 59. NOTE.--To cancel is to suppress or erase.

When the same factor is omitted in both dividend and divisor, it is said to be canceled.

RULE FOR CANCELLATION. When there are common factors in a dividend and its divisor, shorten the operation by canceling all the factors common to both: proceed with the remaining factors as the question may require.

Rem.1. Canceling is merely dividing both dividend and divisor by the same number, which (Art. 59) does not alter the quotient,

%. The pupil should observe that one factor in the dividend will cancel only one equal factor in the divisor.

3. Some prefer to place the numbers forming the dividend on the right of a vertical line, and those forming the divisor on the left,

1. Multiply 42, 25, and 18, together, and divide the product by 21 x 15.

Ans. 60. 2. I sold 23 sheep at $10 each, and was paid in hogs at $5 each : how many did I receive ?

Ans. 46. 3. How many yards of flannel at 35 cents a yard, will pay for 15 yards of calico at 14 cts. ?

Ans. 6 yards. 4. What is the quotient of 21X11 X 6 X 26, divided by 13X3X 14 X2?

Ans. 33. 5. The factors of a dividend are 21, 15, 33, 8, 14, and 17; the divisors, 20, 34, 22, and 27: required the quotient.

Ans. 49. 6. I bought 21 kegs of nails of 95 pounds each, at 6 cents a pound; paid for them with pieces of muslin of 35 yards each, at 9 cents a yard: how many pieces of muslin did I give?

Ans. 38. NOTE--Other applications of Cancellation will be found in Fractions, Proportion, &c. The pupil will apply it more readily, when acquainted with Factoring

VII. COMPOUND NUMBERS. TO TEACHERS.—While placing Fractions immediately after Simple Whole Numbers is philosophical, ană appropriate in a Higher Arithmetic for Advanced pupils, the experience of the author convinces him that, in a ook for Young learners, Compound Numbers should be introduced here, nstead of after Fractions, as is done by some authors. IIis reasons ar

1st. The operations Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division of Cimpound Numbers, are analogous to the same operations in Simr?! Numbers, and serve to illustrate the principles of the fundamental ruleThe principle of Nutation is the same in each.

2d. The subject of Fractions is important and difficult. Before studying it, most pupils require more mental discipline than is demanded in the ele mentary rules. This is acquired by the study of Compound Numbers.

3d. The general principles involved in their study, do not require a knowledge of fractions. The Examples involving fractions are few, and are introduced, (as they should be,) with other exercises in that subject.

TO TEACHERS who prefer it, can direct their pupils to dcfer Compound Numbers until they have studied Fractions to page 169.

DEFINITIONS. Art. 62. When two numbers have the same unit, they are of the same kind or denomination : thus, 3 dollars, 5 dollars, are of the same denomination; both dollars.

When they have different units, they are of different denominations : thus, 3 dollars, and 5 cents, are of different denominations ; dollars and cents.

ART. 63. A simple number denotes things of the same unit value: thus, 3 yard3, 2 dollars, 5 pints, are each simple numbers. All abstract numbers are simple.

ART. 64. A compound number is two or more numbers of different unit values used to express one quantity: thus, 3 dollars 5 cents, 2 feet 3 inches, are each compound.

name of the unit considered. Thus, dollar and cent are denominations of money; foot and inch, of length; pound and ounce, of weight.

2. Compound Numbers are analogous to Simple Numbers in this particular; a certain number of units of each order is collected into a group, and forms a unit of a higher order or denomination. But,

They differ in this : that in compound numbers 10 units of one order do Rot uniformly make one of the next higher.

3. The simplest class of Compound Numbers is Federal money, because we pass from one denomination to another according to the scale of tens.

FEDERAL OR UNITED STATES MONEY,
Art. 65, Is the currency of the United States, estab-
lished by the Federal Congress, in 1786.
While U. S. money may be treated decimally, it is a species of Compound
Numbers, being so regarded in ordinary business transactions.

Its denominations, or the names of its different orders, are mill, cent, dime, dollar, eagle.

Ten units of each denomination make one unit of the next higher denomination.
