What is the present worth of an annuity of 60 dols. per annum, to continue 20 years, at 6 per cent. compound interest ? Ans, $688, 19 cts.+ 3. What is 301. per annum, to continue 7 years, worth in ready money, at 6 per cent. compound interest? Ans. £167 9s. 5d. + III To find the present worth of Annuities, Leases, & cm taken in REVERSION, at Compound Interest, 1. Divide the annuity by that power of the ratio deno. ted by the time of its continuance. 2. Subtract the quotient from the Annuity : Divide the remainder by the ratio less 1, and the quotient will be th present worth to commence immediately. 3. Divide this quotient by that power of the ratio denoted by the time of Reversion, (or the time to come before the Annuity commences) and the quotient will be the present worth of the Annuity in Reversion. EXAMPLES 1. What ready money will purchase an Annụity of 501. payable yearly, for 4 years : but not to commence till two years, at 5 per cent. ? 4th power of 1,05=1,215506)50,00000(41,13513 Subtract the quotient=41,13513 Divide by 1,05_13,05)8,86487 2d. Power of 1,05=1,1025)177,297(160,8136= £160 16s. 3d. 1 qr. present worth of the Annuity in Reversion. OR BY TABLE III. Find the present value of ll. at the given rate for the vum of the time of continuance, and time in reversion added together ; from which value subtract the present worth of Il. for the time in reversion, and multiply the remainder by the Annuity; the product will bw the answer. Thus in Example 1. The sum, —6 years, gives 5,075692 Time in reversion, =2 years, 1,859410 Romainder, 3,216282 x 50 Ans. £160,8141. 2.

As the rate per cent. is to 100l. : so is the yearly rent to the value required. 1. What is the worth of a Freehold Estate of 40l. per annum, allowing 5 per cent to the purchaser ? As £5 : £100: ; £40 : £800. Ans. 2. An estate brings in yearly 1501. what would it sell for, allowing the purchaser 6 per cent. for his money? Ans. £2500. V. To find the present worth of a Freehold Estate, in Reyersion, at Compound Interest. RULE. 1. Find the present value of the estate (by the foregoing rule (as though it were to be entered on immediately, and divide the said value by that power of the ratio denoted by the time of reversion, and the quotient will be the present worth of the estate in Reversion.
