We may conclude from the example that, to multiply a denominate number by a simple one, is to take the de. nominate number as many times as there are units in the multiplier. CASE I. 98. When the simple number does not exceed 12. RULE. 1. Write down the denominate number and set the multiplier under the lowest denomination. 98. What is required when you multiply a denominato number by a simple one ? When the simple number does not exceed 12, how do you write it down? How do you begin to multiply? How do you carry? II. Multiply the lowest denomination by the multiplier, and divide the product by so many units as make one of the next higher denomination, and set down the remainder as in addition. III. Multiply the next higher denomination by the multiplier, and add the quotient to be carried from the last product ; then reduce the sum to units of the next higher denomination, and proceed in the same way for all the denominations, setting down the entire product when you come to the last. 3.
