NOTE. Dollars and cents are separated by a period (.); thus, $2.10, is read 2 dollars 10 cents. A Simple Number contains but one name or denomination; thus, 5, 84, 12 bushels, 65 dollars, are simple numbers. A Compound Number contains two or more names or denominations; thus, 5 dollars 25 cents, 16 bushels 3 pecks, 3 days 10 hours, are compound numbers. Reduction is the process of changing numbers from one denomination to another, without altering their value; thus, changing pounds to ounces, ounces to pounds, dollars to cents, &c., is reduction. 1.
