EXAMPLES IN

REDUCTION OF FEDERAL MONEY.

1. Reduce 2745 dollars into cents. 2745 dollars Here I multiply by 100, the 100 cents in a dollar; but dollars are

Sreadily brought into cents by anAns. 274500 nexing two cyphers, and into

inills by annexing three cyphers. Also, any sum in Federal money may be written down as a whole number and expressed in its lowest denomination, for, when dollars and cents are joined together as a whole number, without a separatrix, they will shew how many cents the given sum contains; and when dollars, cents, and mills are so joined together, they will shew the whole number of mills in the given sum. Hence, properly speaking, there is no reduction of this money; for cents are readily turned into dollars by cutting off the two right hand figures, and mills by pointing off three figures with a dot; the figures to the left hand of the dot, are dollars; and the figures cut off are cents, or cents and mills. 2. In 345 dollars, how many cents and mills ?
