...1oo = *g% = 34-567. Similarly, to divide a decimal by any power of 10, we must move the decimal point **as many places to the left as there are ciphers in the divisor.** If there are more ciphers in the divisor than there are places in the decimal, we must prefix a sufficient... | |

...the divisor is always 10, 100, 1000, &c., the operation is performed by removing the decimal point **as many places to the left as there are ciphers in the divisor,** prefixing ciphers when necessary. EXAMPLES FOR PRACTICE. 1. Reduce 2A 5 to myriares. 2. Reduce ,M 403... | |

...ciphers in the multiplier. Thus, $2.50 = 250 cents; §2.50 5=2505 mills. In Dividing, move the point **as many places to the left, as there are ciphers in the divisor.** Thus, 275 cents = 82. 75; 4285 mills = $4.28 5 1. Reduce 17 cts. to mills. AM. 170 m. 2. Reduce 28... | |

...given. A form now often taught s as follows: " Remove the decimal point to the end of the divisor: **'remove the decimal point in the dividend as many places to the** riyht 'as it has been moved in the divisor: in the quotient, insert the deci'mal point when the decimal... | |

...1708iff£. 64. When the divisor is 10, 100, 1000, etc., the quotient may be obtained, at once, by removing **the decimal point in the dividend, as many places to the left as there are ciphers in the divisor.** For, since the value denoted by figures is multiplied by 10 by re moving the decimal point one place... | |

...NOTE 3. — When a decimal number is to be divided by 10, 100, 1000, &c., remove the decimal point **as many places to the left as there are ciphers in the divisor,** and if there be not figures enough in the number, prefix ciphers. Thus 1.25 -i- 10 = .125 ; and 1.7... | |
