It is evident, that, when the rate is either more or les nan 6 per cent., the interest for the given rate will be a certain part of 6 per cent. ; thus, 5 per cent. will be as much as 6 per cent., 4 per cent. much, 7 per cent. Z as much, &c. To get of any number, we multiply by the numerator, and divide by the denominator; and, as the denominator will always be 6, and the numerator the given rate, hence, To find the interest of any sum, when the rate is not 6 per cent., we have the following RULE. A. Multiply the interest of 6 per cent. by the given rate, and always divide by 6. 1.

A concise and practical Rule for the State of New York, in which the interest is established by law at 7 per cent. It has been remarked, that 7 per cent. is / of 6 per cent. ; that is, & more than 6 per cent. : hence, Q. To find the interest at 7 per cent., what is the RULE ? A. Add t of the interest, at 6 per cent. (found as before), to itself; the sum will be the interest at 7 per cent. Note. The interest for any rate per cent. may be found in the same man ner, by subtracting, when the given rate is under 6 per cent., and adding, whea it is more. 1.

Since 6 per cent. is $6 on $100, that is, T&o of the principal, and 5 per cent. Too, &c., hence, To calculate the interest at any rate per cent., when the time Is 1 year, we proceed as follows: RULE. Multiply by the given rate, and cut off two figures, as before. 1. "What is the interest of $ 220,40 $220,40 for 1 at 9 per cent? 9 yr., $ 19,83 60 Ans. 2.
