Ans. 2 yd. 5. How many pounds shillings and pence in £4 88. 9d., £27 14s. 11d., and £156 175. 10d. ?

We write the denominations un. OPERATION. der each other, and draw a line £

d.. beneath them. We then add up

4 8 9 the column of pence, and find the 27 14 11 sum to be 30. But 30 pence are

156 17 10 equal to 2 shillings and 6 pence: £189 Is. 6d. we therefore write 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.

95. 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.

95. What is addition of denominate numbers? How do you set down the numbers for addition ? Where do you begin to add ? What

you do with the first sum? What do you write down? What do you carry to the next column? What do you do at the last ? How do you prove addition ?

do

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.

III. 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.

£ s.

EXAMPLE ILLUSTRATING PRINCIPLES. What is the sum of £16 18s. 9d., £14 13s. 8d., and £15 17s. 6d.?

Note.--In simple numbers 10 OPERATION. units of any one of the columns,

d. make one unit of the next left

16 18 9 hand column, (Art. 8.) We

14 13 8 therefore carry one for every 10.

15 17 6 But in denominate numbers the

Sum 47 9 11 higher denominations are formed differently.

30 11 For example, 12

2 pence make 1 shilling, the unit

Proof 47 9 11 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.

Ex. 1. 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 frorn pence to shillings? In passing from shillings to pounds? Generally, how do you carry?
