REDUCTION teacheth to change numbers from one denomina. tion to another without losing their value. Rule.' When the Reduction is descending multiply the highest denomination by as many of the next as make one of the greater, adding to the product the parts of the same name, and so on to the last. When the Reduction is ascending, divide the given number by as many of that denomination as make one of the next higher, and so on to the denomination required, and the last quotient with the several remainders (if any) will be the answer. The proof is by reversing the question. FedeRAL MONEY. 53 dolls. In 53 dollars how many mills ? Or decimally, by adding a cypher dols. dim. C. m. 10 530 dimes. 5300 cents. 10 Anf. 53000 mills.
