CASE II.-- When the tare is so much per hundred weight: RULE.-Find, by Practice, the tare, by taking aliquot parts of a cwt.; then deduct the tare from the gross, the remainder will be the neat weight. Or, by the Rule of Three; as 112 is to the tare per cwt., so is the given weight to the tare. Then deduct the tare from the gross weight, and the remainder will be the neat weight. EXAMPLES 1.

What is the neat weight of 123cwt. lqr. 20lb. gross; tare 141b. per cwt. ? Ans. 108cwt. Note-If the tare be 1416 per cwt., deduct į of the gross weight for the tare; the remainder will be the neat weight, 141b. being of a cwt. or ' 1121b., which is shown thus, 14)1=reduced to its lowest terms. If the tare be 1616. per cwt., deduct 7 of the gross weight for the tare; the remainder will be the neat weight, 16lb. being of a cwt. or - 1121b, which is shown, thus, 16)44 =. If the tare be any other quantity than 1415. or 1616. per cwt., first obtain the fare for 141b., or 161b. per cwt. and then take aliquot parts of the quotient. 3.

An Annuity is a sum of -money payable at regular periods, generally every year, for a certain time or for ever. The annuity sometimes depends on some contingency, as the life or death of a person and it is then said to be contingent.' When the annuity does not commence until a certain number of years has elapsed, it is then said to be in reversion. The annuity is said to be in arrear, when the debtor ieeps it beyond the time of payment. The present worth of an annuity is such a sum as being now put out to interest, would exactly pay the annuity when it becomes due, and such a sum as must be given for the annuity, if it be paid at the commencement. The amount is the sum of the annuities for the time it has been forborne, with the interest due on each payment or annuity. The rules in annuity are only particular applications of the Rule of Three. Case I.-To find the amount of an annuity at Simple Interest. RULE. First, find the interest of the given annuity for one year; and then for 2, 3, and so on, up to the given number of years, less 1. Then multiply the annuity by the given number of years, and add the prodact to the whole interest, and the sum will be the amount sought. EXAMPLES. 1. What is the amount of an annuity of $100 for four years, computing interest at 7 per cent? ..14. for 3 years,.-------21. Four years' annuity, at $100 per year is $100X4=400 Ans. 442. DEM. It is plain, as 100 dollars is forborne 4 years, which is due at the end of each year, that the 100 dollars must be multiplied by 4 for 2 years," for the annuity, without the interest, and the 100 dollars, which becomes due at the end of the first year, runs on interest three years, consequently the interest on thạt must be 21 dollars, and the 100 dol lars which becomes due at the end of the second year, runs on inter: est two years, which gives 14 dollars interest, and the $100, which becomes due at the end of the third year, runs on interest one year, which gives 7 dollars interest, and the 100 dollars which becomes due at the end of the fourth year, does not run on interest, because it is paid or reckoned when it becomes due, consequently we must always reckon interest for one year less than the given tine; and it is plain, if these several annuities be added to the interest due on them, the sum must be the amount of the annuity, 2. What is the amount of an annuity of $400, forborne 5 years, simple interest, computed at 7 per ct. ? Ans. $2280. 3. A man let a house upon a lease of 6 years, at $300 per annum, and the rent being in arrear for the whole term; what sum must he demand at the end of the term, simple interest being allowed at 7 per cent ? Ans. $2115. Note.- Pensions in arrears are reckoned the same as in the preceding examples. CASE II.-To find the present worth of an annuity at Simple Interest. RULE. First, find the present worth of each year by itself, discounting from the time it becomes due; then, the sum of all these will be the present worth. NOTE.-This rule depends on the principles of discount. The an. muity for each year, may be considered as a debt due 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 years hence, and so on, of which the present worth is to be found; hence the sum of all these will be the present worth. EXAMPLES 1. What is the present worth of 100 dollars per annum, to continue 4 years, at 7 per cent ? * cts. m. 107 93,45,7 The present worth for 1 year. 114 87.71,9. 100 : : 100 : 121 82,64,4. 128 78,12,5. 4 years. Ans. $341,94,5 present worth required. 2. What is the present worth of an annuity of 400 dollars, continued five years, at 6 per cent? Ans. $1703, 75cts. 5m. QUESTIONS ON ANNUITIES.
