Operation. If 6 hats cost $25.68, 1 hat will cost 6)25.68

one sixth of $25.68. Divide as in sim$4.28 Ans, ple numbers, and point off two decimal

figures in the quotient. (Art. 194.) Proof. $4.28

If i hat costs $4.28, 6 hats will cost 6 times 6

as much ; and $4.28 x6=$25.68, which is the cost.

Hence, $25.68

217. When the number of articles, pounds, yards, &c., and the cost of the whole are given, to find the price of one article, pound, &c.

2. How many yards of cloth, at $3.13 per yard, can be bought for $20.345 ? Operation.

Since $3.13 will buy 1 yard, 3.13)20.345(6.5 Ans. $20.345 will buy as many yards 18 78

as $3.13 is contained times in

$20.345. Divide as in simple 1 565 1 565

numbers, and point off one decimal

figure in the quotient. (Art. 194.) Proof.—$3.13 X 6.5=20.345. Hence,

After dividing the $75 by 18, there is a remainder of 3 dollars, which must be reduced to cents and mills, (Art. 208,) and then be divided as before. The ciphers thus annexed must be regarded as decimals; consequently there will be three decimal figures in the quotient.

12 rem.

219. From the preceding illustrations we derive the following

GENERAL RULE.

Divide as in simple numbers, and point of the quotient as in division of decimal fractions. (Art. 194.)

Obs. After all the figures of the dividend are divided, if there is a remainder, ciphers may be annexed to it, and the operation may be continued as in division of decimals. (Art. 194. Obs. 3.) The ciphers thus annexed must be regarded as decimal places of the dividend.
