EXAMPLES IN

REDUCTION OF FEDERAL MONEY.

1. Reduce 2745 dollars into cents. 2745 dollars Here I multiply by 100, the 100

çents in a dollar; but dollars are

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

mills 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 shev 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.“ llence, 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 aff thrce figures with a dot; the figures to the left hand of the dot, ale dollars; and the figures cut off are cents, or cents and mills. 2.
