systems. As decimal fractions may be learnel, much easier than vulgar, and are more simple, useful, and neces. sary, and soonest wanted in more useful branches of Arithmetic, they ought to be learned first, and Vulgar Fractiong omiited, until further progress in tha science shall make them necessary. It be well to obtain a general idea of them, and to attend to two or thrce easy problems therein: after which, the scholar may learn decimals, which will be necessary in the reduction of currencies, computing interest and many other branches. Besides, to obtain a thorough knowledge of Vulgar Fractions, is generally a task too hard for young scholars who have made no further progress in Arithinetic than Reduction, and often discourages them. I have therefore placed a few problems in Fractions, according to the method above hinted ; and after going through the principal mercantile rules, have treated upon Vulgar Fractions at large, the scholar being now capable of going through them with advantage and ease. In Simple Interest, in Federal Money, I have given several new and concise rules ; some of which are particularly designed for the use of the compting-house. The Appendix contains a variety of rules for casting Interest, Rebate, &c. together with a number of the most easy and useful problems, for measuring superficies and solids, examples of forms commonly used in transacting business, useful tables, &c. which are designed as aids in the common business of life. Perfect accuracy, in a work of this nature, can hardly be expected ; errors of the press, or perhaps of the author, may have escaped correction. If any such are point ed out, it will be considered as a mark of friendship and favor, by The public's most humble NATIAN DAROL.L. 40 ADDITION, Simple of Federal Money Compound Annuities or Pensions, at Compound Interest Coins of the United States, Weights of Page.
