Reduction of Decimals. Note. The proof of the foregoing operation in the reduction of compound terms, will furnish the means of reducing any given decimal to its proper value in the terms of an integer.
RULE. 1. Multiply the given decimal by that number which equals one, in the term next below that in which the decimal is given.
2. Point off to the right, as in multiplication of decimals, and then proceed to multiply the remainder by the number which equals one in the next lower term.
3. Thus continue to the end of all the terms, and the several sums to the left of the points, will be the correct answer. 1. What is the value of 678125 of a £.
Ans. £0 - 13 - 6 - 3. 2. What is the value of .0625 of one shilling? Ans. 3 grs. 3. What is the value of .989583 of a £?

Ans. gal.24 - 2 - 1. Note. It may not be improper to observe that in the reduction of some dech mals, a remainder will continua!ly occu"; and although the further the ope. ration is extended, the nearer an approach is made to the true fraction, yet the exact decimal can never be reached. Five or six places, however, will suffice for ordinary piz poses.

The hat then passes into the hands of the finisher', where it is trimmed' and made ready for use'.
