I have three lots of wild land ; the first contains 246 acres, the second 764 acres, and the third 918 acres ; how many acres are there in the three lots ? In this example, the units are first added, and their sum is found to be 246 18; in 18 units, there are 1 ten and 7 64 8 units; the 8 is written under the 918 column of units, and the 1 (ten) is car ried to be added with the tens, which 1928 Ans. are found to be 1 hundred and 2 tens ; the 2 is written under the tens, and the 1 (hundred) is carried to the hundreds, which amount to 19 = 1 thousand 9 hundred; the whole of which is set down. Hence the propriety of the following RULE. Write units under units, tens under tens, fc. Then add upwards the units, and if the amount be less than ten, set it down. If the amount be ten or more, write down the unit figure, and carry the tens to be added with the columns of tens. Proceed in this way, till the whole is finished, writing down the total amount in the last column. PROOF. Begin at the top, and add together all the columns of numbers downwards, in the same manner as they were before added upwards; then if the two sums agree, the work is right. 1766 25 1 2 21. 20. 895 676 3 2 5 678 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 10988 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 21098 7 6 5 4 3 2 2 78901234 5 6 7 9 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 543 2 1 098 7 6 5 5 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 6 5 4 3 2 10987 6 6 104323 67 4 3 2 2 210987 6 5 4 3 2 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 891 2 3 4 67890123 4 5 6 7 321098765433 456789012345 543210987 6 5 5 7890 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 21098 7 6 5 4 3 2 2 78901 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 21 0987 6 5 4 3 2 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 6 5 4 3 2 1 0987 66 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 087 6 5 22.
