TABLE. OC, Thousands X Thousands C. Thou. Parts Q. May not Cyphers sometimes be annexed to Decimals? A. They may, but they alter not their value: Thus, .44 and 4100 are the same. Q. May not Cyphers sometimes be prefixed to Decimal Parts? A. Yes; and then they decrease their Value by removing them farther from the point: thus .0041 is less than .41.
