Compound Subtraction teaches to find the difference between two numbers of several denominations. RULE. 1. Place the less number under the greater, so that those of the same denomination may stand directly under each other, and draw a line below them. 2 Beginning at the lowest denomination, take each figure in the lower line from that above it, and set down the remainder. 3. But if the lower denomination be more than that above it, add as many as make one of the next greater denomination to the upper number ; then subtract, and set down the remainder, as before. 4. Proceed to the next greater denomination, paying the one you borrowed, as in simple subtraction; thus continue through every denomination to the last. English Money . EXAMPLES. 1. 2. d. 9. £: d.

Reduction teaches to bring numbers from one denomination to others of different denominations retain. ing the same value. Reduction is of two kinds DESCENDING, and AsCENDING ; the former of which is performed by multiplication, the latter by division. Reduction Descending. RULE. Multip'y the highest denomination given, by so many of the next less, as make one of the greater ; so continue 'till you have reducedit as low as you desire. If the given number consist of several denominations, remember to add in the numbers in cach de. nomination, as you reduce the highest to them. EXAMPLES. 1.
