FEDERAL MONEY. NEXT in point of simplicity, and the nearest allied to whole numbers, is the coin of the United States, or

1 Eagle, Dollar is the money unit; all other denominations be ing valued according to their place from the dollar's place. A point or comma, called a separatrix, may be ninspd after the dollars to separate them from the interior
denominations; then the first figure at the right of this separatrix is dimes, the second figure cents, and the third mills. *
ADDITION OF FEDERAL MONEY."
RULE. 1. Place the numbers according to their value; that is, Collars under dollars, dimes under dimes, cents under cots, &c. and proceed exactly as in whole numbers ;
en place the separatrix in the sum total, directly under che separating points above.
2. When accounts are kept in dollars and cents, and no other denominations are mentioned, which is the usual mode in common reckoning, then the two first figures at the right of the separatrix or point, may be called so many cents instead of dimes and cents ; for the place of dimes is only the ten's place in cents ; because ten cents make a dime; for example, 48, 75, forty-eight dollars, seven dimes five cents, may be read forty-eight dollars and seventy-five cents.
* It may be observed that all the figures at the left hand of the separatrix are dollars; or you may call the first figure dollars, and the other eagles, &c. Thus any sum of this money may be read differently, either wholly in the lowest denomination, or partly in the higher, and partly in the lowest; for example, 37 54, may be either read 3754 cents, or 375 dimes and 4 cents, or 37 dollars 5 åimes and 4 cents, of 3 cagles, dollars dimes and 4 cents.
If the cents are less than ten, place a cypher in the ten's place, or place of dimes.-Example. Write down four dollars and 7 cents. Thus, $4, 07 cts.

Subtraction of whole Numbers, TEACHETH to take a less number from a greater, et the same denomination, and thereby shows the difference, or remainder : as 4 dollars subtracted from 6 dollars, the remainder is two dollars.
Place the least number under the greatest, so that units may stand under units, tens under tens, &c. and draw a line under them.
2. Begin at the right hand, and take cach figure in the lower lipe from the figure above it, and set down the romainder.
3. If the lower figure is greater than that above it, add ten to the upper figure;
from which number 90 lacreased, take the lower and set down the remainder, carrying one to the next lower number, with which proceed as before, and so on till the whole is finished.
Add the remainder to the least number, and if the sum be equal to the greatest, the work is right
