It is usual to write dollars and cents in the followii ner: 43 dols. 5. d. 7 c. and 4 mills, is written $ The character $ written before shows that it is fede ney. The figures at the left of the point (.) are s dollars, the first figure at the right of che point is si dimes, the next so many cents, and the third so man

It may be observed that wien dollars stand alon are changed to dimes by annexing one zero to the rig cause that multiplies them by 10. They are char cents, by annexing two zeros, because that multiplie

[ocr errors][ocr errors]

by 100. They are changed to mills by annexing three zeros, because that multiplies them by 1,000. Thus 43 dollars are 430 dimes, 4,300 cents, or 43,000 mills. 5 dimes are 50 cents, or 500 mills. 7 cents are 70 mills. The above example then may be read 43 dols. 57 cents and 4 mills; or 435 dimes, 7 cents, and 4 mills; or 4,357 cents and 4 mills ; or 43,574 mills. When there are dollars, dimes, and cents, the figures on the left of the point may be read dollars, and those on the right, cents; or they may be all read together as cents. When the number of cents exceeds 100, they are changed to dollars by putting a point between the second and third figures from the right. If there are mills in the number, all the figures may be read together as mills. Any number of mills are changed to dollars by putting a point between the third and fourth figure from the right; the figures at the left will be dollars, and thosc at the right, dimes, cents, and mills. Since any sum which has cents or mills in it, may be considered as so many cents or mills, it is evident that any operation, as addition, multiplication, &c. may be performed upon it in the same manner ås upon simple numbers.

If the sum consists of dollars and a number of cents less than ten, there must be a zero between the dollars and the cents in the place of dimes. Thus 7 dols. and 5 cents must be written $7.05.
