RULE FOR ADDITION. Write the numbers, units under units, tens under tens, &c. Add each column separately, beginning with the column of units. When the sum of any column is not more than 9, write it under the column: when the sum is more than 9, write only the units' figure under the column, and carry the number of tens to the next column. Finally, write down the whole sum of the left hand column.

CHAP. III.

SUBTRACTION.

SECTION 1. 1. Subtract 632 from 1847; that is, take 632 from 1847, and find what number remains. 1847

We first write the smaller number under 632 the greater. Then, take 2 units from 7 units,

3 tens from 4 tens, 6 hundreds from 8 hun1215

dred, and nothing from 1 thousand. Subtract the smaller number from the greater in each of the following examples. (2). 25 (3). 639 (4). 4258 (5). 705684 12 213 3215

4261

6. A farmer having 359 sheep, sold 136 of them, and kept the remainder. How many did he keep?

7. A trader having 2748 dollars, laid out 2616 dollars for goods. How many dollars had he remaining ?

Section 2. 1. Subtract the number 1528 from the number 8473.

We unite 1 of the 7 tens with the 3 units, 8473

making 13 units, and say, 8 from 13, leaves 1528

5. Then, having used 1 of the 7 tens, we 6945 take 2 tens from 6 tens.

In the same way we take 5 hundreds from 14 hundreds. Do not pass from the above example without understanding it. Whenever an upper figure is smaller than the figure under it, we use 1 from the next upper figure, and this 1 becomes 10 when considered with the right hand figure. Arithmeticians commonly call this process, borrowing 10; and, instead of reckoning the figure from which they have borrowed to be 1 less than it stands, they pay i to the figure under it-reckoning the lower figure to be 1 more than it stands.

Perform subtraction in the following examples. (2). 1853

6. Subtract 1268 from 1503.

In subtracting the 8 units, we use a ten, 1503

that we obtain by supposing 1 of the 5 hun1268

dreds, (which is 10 tens,) to be where the 235.0 is. Then, naving used 1 of the 10 tens, T E Tuwi we presently subtract 6. tens from 9 tens. 7. Subtract 1146 from 2601. 8. Subtract 5428 from 8019. 9. Subtract 258 from 34307. :

| RULE FOR SUBTRACTION. Write the smaller number under-the greater, pldcing units under units, &c. Begin with the units, and subtract each figure in the lower number from the over it.

When a figure in the upper number is smaller than the figure under it, consider the upper figure to be 10 more than it is, and the next upper figure on the left hand, to be 1 less than it is.

PROOF. Add together the remainder and the smaller number : their sum will be equal to the greater number, if the work be right.

..
10. Find the difference between 39 and 64, by sub-
tracting the smaller number from the greater.

11. Whạt is the difference between 464 and 502 ? . 1
12. What is the difference between 99 and 200 ?
13. What is the difference between 35720 and 9100 ?
14. Subtract 44 from 10000.

15. I deposited 1450 dollars in the bank, and I have since drawn out 835 dollars.

How many dollars have I remaining in the bank!

16, Suppose a man owes 1634 dollars, and possesses property to the amount of 8150 dollars; how much will he have left, after paying his debts?

17. Subtract sixty-two thousand five hundred and seven, from one million eighty thousand and forty-four.
