Reduction of a denominate number is the process of changing it from one denomination to another without altering its value. 247. Reduction Descending is the process of changing a denominate number to an equivalent number of a lower denomination. WRITTEN EXERCISES. PROCESS. 1. How many farthings are there in £3 5s. 6 d.? ANALYSIS.—Since in 1 pound £3 5s. 6 d. there are 20 shillings, in 3 pounds there are 3 times 20 shillings, or 60 20 shillings; and 60 shillings + 5 shil65 s. £3 5s. lings = 65 shillings. 12 Since in 1 shilling there are 12 786d. £3 5s. 6d. pence, in 65 shillings there are 65 times 12 pence, or 780 4 and pence; 780 pence + 6 pence=786 pence. 31 47 far. = £3 5s. 63 d. Since in 1 penny there are 4 far things, in 786 pence there are 3144 farthings; and 3144 farthings + 3 farthings = 3147 farthings. Hence in £3 5s. 6 d. there are 3147 farthings. PROCESS. 2. How many pence are there in £2 10s. 6d. ? ANALYSIS.-Since in 1 pound there are 20 shillings, in of a ·£= of 20 s. = 60 s. pound there are of 20 shil. el s. = 60 of 12d. = 740d. lings, or hoe of a shilling. 129d. =1024 d. Since in 1 shilling there are 12 pence, in o of a shilling there are 6 of 12 pence, or 740 pence; and ??o pence=1024d. Therefore in £} there are 1029d. Multiply the number of the highest denomination given, by the number of units of the next lower denomination which is equal to one of the next higher, and to the product add the number given of this lower denomination. Proceed in like manner with this and each successive result thus obtained, until the number is reduced to the denomination required. 6. How many pence are there in £j? 11.

How many pounds sterling must be paid for 10 pairs of boots at 6 shillings a pair? 5. At 5 shillings each how many pounds sterling must be paid for 16 hats? For 20 hats? 6. Sold 8 pairs of skates at 5 shillings a pair. How many pounds sterling did I receive for them? Reduction Ascending is the process of changing a denominate number to an equivalent number of a higher denomination. WRITTEN EXERCISES. PROCESS. 1. How many pounds sterling are there in 7254 pence? ANALYSIS.—Since 12 pence are 12) 7 2 54 equal to 1 shilling, there must 20) 604...6 be as many shillings in 7254 pence as 12 pence are contained 30....4 times in that number. 12 pence 7 25 4d. -£30 4s. 6 d. are contained in 7254 pence 604 times with a remainder of 6 pence, therefore 7254 pence are equal to 604s. 6d. Since 20 shillings are equal to 1 pound, there must be as many pounds in 604 shillings as 20 shillings are contained times in that number. 20 shillings are contained in 604 shillings 30 times and a remainder of 4 shillings. Therefore 7254 pence are equal to £30 4s. 6d. 2. How many shillings are there in 345 farthings? ANALYSIS.—Since 1 penny is 1 of a shilling, of a penny is 3d.= $of 1;s.=s. equal to of ty of a shilling, or 845. = 84 of £zv==£1650 it of a shilling. Since 1 shilling is zo of a pound, its of a shilling is equal to i of of a pound, or Test of a pound. PROCESS. RULE. - Divide the given number by the number of that denomination which is equal to a unit of the next higher denomiration. Divide the quotient in like manner, and thus proceed until the required denomination is reached. The last quotient and the several remainders will be the result sought. 7.

It has three dimensions or measurements—length, breadth and thickness. 251. A Line is that which has only length. Thus, the edge of any thing, or the distance between any two objects or places, is a line. 252. A Surface is that which has only length and breadth. Thus, the floor, this page, or the outside of any thing, is a surface. 253. A Solid is that which has length, breadth and thickness. Thus, a stone, an apple, a block, a book, etc., are solids. |
