62. As dimes are tens of cents, the second line may either be read 16 cents and 4 mills, or 1 dime 6 cents and 4 mills. And as the eagles are tens of dollars the third line may be read 62 dollars and 12 cents, or 6 eagles 2 dollars and 12 cents.

Federal money is generally read, in dollars, cents, and mills.

$63. From the first of the tables it appears,

Ist. That cents may be changed into mills by an. nezing a cipher.

Thus, 8 cents are equal to 80 mills.

2d. That dollars may be changed into cents by annexing two ciphers, and into mills by annexing three.

For example, 12 dollars are equal to 1200 cents, or to 12000 mills. The reasons of these rules are evident, since 10 mills make a cent, 100 cents bar, and 1000 mills a dollar.

EXAMPLES. 1. How many mills in 67 cents ?

Ans. 670. 2. How many mills in $54 ?

Ans. 54000, 3. How many cents in $125 ?

Ans. 12500.. § 64. To change mills, into dollars, cents and mills, we obtain from the numeration table the following

RULE. Cut off the right hand figure for mills, the two next figures for cents, and the remaining left hand figures will be dollars.

The reason of the rule is this : by cutting off the first right hand figure, we in fact, divide by 10, and thus reduce the mills to cents. Then by cutting off the next two figures, we divide by 100; and thus reduce the cents to dollars.':

The comma, or separatrix, is generally used to separate the mills from the cents, and the cents from the dollars. Thus, $67,25,6 is read 67 dollars 25 cents and 6 mills.
