...any number whatever, but the denominator of the latter, when expressed, is always 10, 100, 1000, or 1 **with as many ciphers annexed as there are figures in the decimal.** The least common multiple is the least number, which can be so divided without a remainder. Jl prime... | |

...&c. Hence, conversely : 116. The denominator of a decimal, thus expressed, is the number denoted by a **unit with as many Ciphers annexed, as there are figures in the** given number. Thus, .'37 is TW ; '004 is ToW '00083, TTFff ^ &C. 117. From this notation it is evident,... | |

...PROBLEM II. To reduce a decimal to a vulgar fraction. — The given decimal will be the Numerator; and a **unit, with as many ciphers annexed as there are figures in the decimal,** will be the Denominator of the required fraction, which reduce to its lowest terms. (1) Reduce '5 to... | |

...divide by a number expressed by any number of 9's : Divide the dividend by the number expressed by a **unit, with as many ciphers annexed as there are figures in the** divisor, divide the quotient thus found by the same number, and thus proceed as long as possible; then... | |

...What, then, will always be the denominator of a decimal fraction ? A. It will always be an unit or 1, **with as many ciphers annexed, as there are figures in the decimal** expression. Q. From what do decimal fractions arise, and how are they produced ? A. They, like all... | |

...the numerator is the ordinal number of its denominator, and the denominator is always known to be a **unit with as many ciphers annexed as there are figures in the** numerator. Since the numerator expresses the number of parts, and the ordinal number of its denominator... | |

...same as whole number* 5. The denominator of a decimal, though never expressed, is always the unit, 1, **with as many ciphers annexed as there are figures in the decimal.** 6. To read decimals requires two numerations ; first, from units, to find the name of the denominator,... | |
