We find the interest of $240 for 1 yr. at 6% to be $14.40.

If the interest for 1 yr. is $14.40, to give an interest of $50.40 it will require as many years as $14.40 is contained times in $50.40, which is 3 years.

RULE.

Divide the given interest by the interest of the principal at the

given rate for one year.

In what time will

2. $940 at 6% give $432.40 interest? 3. $1450 at 6% give $217.50 interest? 4. $60 at 6% give $6 interest? 5. $120 at 7% give $37.10 interest? 6. $480 at 5% give $62 interest? 7. $240 at 6% give $16.92 interest? 8. $720 at 5% give $117.30 interest? 9. $360 at 8% give $312.80 interest? 10. $600 at 7% give $613.30 amount? 11. $960 at 5% give $984.80 amount?

12. $1200 at 41% give $1203.60 amount?

13. In what time will a principal double itself at 5%? At 8%? At 4% ?

14. In what time will a principal treble itself at 6%? At 7%? At 51% ?

The interest of $640 for 4 yr. 6 mo. at 1% is $28.80.

If the interest at 1% is $28.80, to give $172.80 interest it will require as many per cent. as $28.80 is contained times in $172.80, which is 6%.

PROMISSORY NOTES.

178. A Promissory Note is a written promise to pay a specified person a specified sum at a specified time.

The Maker of a note is the person who signs it.
The Payee is the person to whom it is payable.
The Holder is the person who owns it.

An Indorser is a person who writes his name on the back of a note to transfer it or to guarantee its payment in case the maker fails to pay it when due.

The Face of a note is the sum named in it.

179. A Negotiable Note is a note that can be transferred. A note is negotiable when it is made payable to the "bearer" or to the "order" of the payee; when it is made payable to the payee only, it is not negotiable.

NOTE.-In Pennsylvania the law requires the words "without defalcation," in addition to "value received," to make a note negotiable; and in New Jersey, "without defalcation or discount."

180. A note Matures, or becomes legally due, at the expiration of the specified time.

NOTE.-In some states Three Days of Grace are allowed, and then a note matures three days after the specified time. In this book days of grace will not be reckoned. Custom also varies when a note falls due on Sunday or a legal holiday-some states making it payable on the next preceding, and others on the next succeeding, business day.

181. A Protest is a written notice sent by a notary public to the indorsers, stating that the maker has failed to pay the note. If the notice is not sent on the last day of grace, the indorsers are not held responsible for its payment.

NOTE.-If the words "with interest" are in the note, it draws interest from date; if these words are omitted, the note will not draw interest until after it becomes due. When no rate is mentioned, the legal rate at the place where the note is made is understood.
