RATE PER CENT. FOR MONTHS. The decimal expression of the rate for months, when the rate is 6 per cent. a year, is easily obtained; for, if the rate for 12 months be 6 per cent. or .06, for 1 month it is ia of 6 per cent. which is į per cent. or .005; for 2 months it is 1 per cent. or .01; for 3 months it is 11 per cent. or .015; for 4 months it is 2 per cent. or .02; for 5 months it is 2 per cent. or .025; for a year and 1 month it is 62 per cent. or .065; for a year and 2 months it is 7 per cent. or .07; for a year and 11 months it is 11 ) per cent. or .115. 1. If the rate of interest be 6 per cent. for a year, what is the rate for 1 month ? ...... for 6 months ? ...... for 7 months ? ...... for 8 months ? ...... for 9 months? 2. At 6 per cent. a year, what is the rate for a year and 1 month ? a year and 3 months ? . year and 4 months ? a year and 10 months ? ...... a RATE PER CENT. FOR Days. Observe, that the rate for 2 months, which is 60 days, is 1 per cent. or .01; and for jo of 60 days, which is 6 days, it is to of .01, which is .001. Now since the rate for 6 days is 1-thousandth, the rate for any number of days is as many thousandths as there are times 6 days. Therefore, to find the rate for days, at 6 per cent. per annum, adopt the following RULE. Denote the days as so many thousandths, and divide the expression by 6: the quotient will be the rate. 3. If the rate of interest be 6 per cent. for a year, what is the rate for 1 day ? ...... for 2 days? ... for 3 days? .... for 4 days ? ...... for 5 days? ...... for 6 days? for 7 days? ...... for 9 days ? ...... for 24 days ? ...... for 26 days? 4. At 6 per cent. a year, what is the rate for 2 months and 12 days ? ...... 3 months and 10 days ? ...... for 5 months and 18 days ? ...... for 10 months and 29 days? ...... 5. What is the interest, and what the amount of 5417 dollars 72 cents, for 4 years 7 months 19 days, at 6 pe ? cent. a year for 5 To find the rate for 4 years, we multi 546.72 ply the rate for 1 year by 4; thus, .06 X .27816 4=.24. To find the rate for 7 months, 328032 we multiply the rate for 1 month by 7; 54672 thus, .005 X7=.035. To find the rate 437376 for 19 days, we denote 19 as thousandths, 382704 and divide the expression by 6; thus, 109344 .019-6=.00316+. Now the sum 152.0756352 of these rates, .24+.035+.00316= 546.72 .27816, is the rate for the whole time; and by this sum we multiply the principal.. 698.7956352 The interest found, is $152.07,5+; which, added to the principal, gives the amount, $698 .79,5+. The rate for 19 days is not exact, as the deci mal does not terminate; it is, however, sufficiently near exactness. 6.

What is the amount of 4119 dollars 20 cents, for ] year and 5 days, at 6 per cent. a year? To compute interest by DAYS, when the rate is 6 per cent. per annum. KULE. Multiply the principal by the number of days, and divide the product by 6. The quotient is the interest in mills, when the principal consists of dollars only; but when there are cents in the princi: pal, cut off two figures from the right of the quotient, and the remaining figures will express the mills. This rule— like the rule for finding the per cent. fo: days— is based upon the supposition of 360 days to the year; and, since the year contains 365 days, the rule gives 73 part more than a true six per cent. interest. 52.

What is the difference between the interest of $1000 for 1 year, computed by the year, and the interest on the same sum for the same time, computed by days; both at 6 per cent. ? It will be observed, that, in all the preceding examples, the rate of interest has been 6 per cent. per annum. The method of computing interest at any other rate per cent. is the same, and equally simple, when the time consists of years only; but when there are months and days in the time, and the rate per cent. per annum is other than 6, it will frequently be convenient to find the interest for a |
