A. Simple consists of only one denomination: 4 4 Operation by Slate illustrated. bers written down? nails under nails, quarters under quarters, Q. How do you get the 1 na. in the Ans. 3 1 answer? A. I begin with nails, the least denomi. nation, and say, 2 na. from 3 na. leaves 1 na. Q. How do you proceed to get the 3 qrs.? A. I cannot take 3 qrs. from 2 qrs., but I can borrow, as in Simple Subtraction, 1 yd.=4 qrs., from the yards; then say, 4 qrs. joined or added to the 2 qrs. (the top figure) makes 6 qrs., from which taking 3 qrs. leaves 3 qrs. Q. But suppose that, instead of adding first, we subtract first, how would you proceed ? A. Taking 3 qrs. from 4 qrs. (borrowed) leaves 1 gr., and 2 qrs. makes 3 qrs. Q. How do you get the 2 yds.? A. I must carry 1 yd. (for the yard which I borrowed) to 7 yds., making Syds., which, subtracted from 10 yds., leaves 2 yds. From this example we derive the following RULE. Q. How do you write the numbers down? A. The less under the greater, placing each denomination as in Compound Addition. Q. With which denomination do you begin to subtract? A. From the denomination above it, as in Q. If the lower number in any denomination be greater than the upper, how do you proceed ? A. Borrow as many units as make one in the next higher denomination, from which subtract the lower number. Q. What must the reniainder he added to ? A. One. A. By adding the Remainder and Subtrahend together, as in Simple Subtraction, the amount of which must be equal to the Minuend.
