...1708-tfff. 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...
