Adding and Calculating
Adding machines were around for a long time in the days before electronic calculators.
Adding up in the old UK currency of pounds, shillings and pence required special adaptations.
Of course you could use a ready reckoner and look the answer up in the tables or there was always pencil and paper . . . .
For an explanation of £sd money see the Money page.
