1844 Excerpt: ...127. 1. Multiply,37 by,8. If we multiply the
fraction y3 by, Operation. we find the product to be ia09000: and
-37=yj. generally, the number of ciphers in the denominator of the
product, will be equal lo the number of decimal places in the two
factors. 2. Multiply,3 by,02. OPERATION. ==,006 answer To express
the 6 thousandths decimally we have to prefix two ciphers-to the 6,
and this makes as many decimal places in the product as there are
in both multiplicand and multiplier. Therefore, to multiply one
decimal by another, we have the following RU1E. Multiply asin
simple numbers, andpoint off in the product, from the right hand,
as many figures for decimals as are equal to the number of decimal
places in the multiplicand and multiplier; and if there be not so
many in the product, supply the deficiency by prefixing ciphers. Q.
After multiplying, how many decimal places will you point off in
the product? When there are not so many in the product, what do you
do? Give the rule for the multiplication of decimals. EXAMPLES. 1.
