; multiply by 12, and cut off just as many right hand figures from the product as you multiply; the left hand ones are pence, &c.

Or, multiply the given sum by 60, the number of pence in a dollar, and if it contains cents, cut off two figures on the right, if mills, three ; those on the left are pence, which must be reduced into pounds. The figures cut off will be decimals of a penny.
