COMPOUND DIVISION teaches to find how often one number is contained in another of different denominations. a RULE. Place the numbers as in Simple Division. Begin at the left hand, and divide each denomination by the divisor, setting the quotients under their respective dividends; but if there be a remainder in dividing any of the denominations except the lowest, find how many of the next lower denomination it is equal to ; and add it to the number, if any, which was in this denomination before ; divide this sum as usual, and thus proceed, until the whole is finished. The method of proof is the same as in Simple Division. APPLICATION. 1. Divide £67 10s. 9d. by 7. Ans. £9 12s. 111d. + 2. Divide £8 equally among 6 persons.
