If the value is, for instance, L.2, 3s. per ton, we have but to multiply the figures 37474 by 23, and point the amount thus L.8126.96.36.199. If, however, the price be L.2, 3s. per cwt., the point after the pounds, which is the only essential one, must be removed a step further to the right thus, L.8619.0.2; and if L.2, 3s. per stone, it will be L.86190.2.
