EXAMPLES. 3. At what rate of interest per cent will 420l amount to 5201 153 in 8 years ? Ans. 3 per cent. CASE 7. Q. How is the time found when the principal, amount and rate per cent are given ? A. As the interest of the principal for 1 year at the giren rate Is to one year : To the time required. 1 In what time will 500l amount to 7251 at 5 per cent per annum ? Aus. 9 years, 2 In what time will 6201 amount to 7931 12s at 4 per cent per annum ? Ans. 7 years. 3 In what time will 4201 aniount to 5201 16s at 3 per cent per annum ? Ans, 8 years. Q. How are the questions in the foregoing cases proved ? - A. Cases 1, 5, 6, and 7, do exactly prove each other; by varying the questions : yet all of them except case the ist, 2nd, 5th, 6th, and 7th, questions in case 1, and the 6th, 7th, and 8ih, in case 2, may as truly be answered by the double rule of three, of which more hereafter. Note 1. The 1st. 2nd, 5th, 6th, and 7th, Questions in Case 1, and the 6th, 7th and 8th in Case 2, are to be proved by the rule of three. 2. Case 5th, cannot be answered by the double rule of three, because the principal is not known in the question, and ther fore there can be no deduction of it from the amount, to know the interest, which must first be done.

Compound Interest is that which arises from any principal and its interest put together, as the interest still becomes due ; and for that reason it is called interest upon interest or compound interest. Q. Is it lawful to let out money at compound interest ? A. 1. No: yet in purchasing of annuities or pensions, and leases in reversion. it is very usual to allow compound interest to the purchaser for his ready money and therefore it is very necessary to understand it.

THE COMMON WAY, WHAT is Equation of payments ? A. When several sums of money, to be paid at different times, are reduced to one mean time for the payment of the whole, without loss to debtor or creditor, this is called Equation of payments. Q. Wherein may the debtor or creditor he said to suffer loss ; when the deht is paid ? A. 1. When one mean time is assigned for the payment of the whole debt, and the money is not paid till some time afterwards; then the debtor suffers loss by laying not only ont of the principal. or sum dne, but also the interest ofihat sum for the time of forbearanee, at 3, or 4, or more per cent as they shall agree. Likewise, if the money be paid hefore it is due. then the creditor suffers loss by allowing 30 much per cent by agreement, for the time of prompt.pay Bient. 2. The loss to either party may be in redueing the seteral times of payment to one, which is not the true equated time; and then if the payment be made after the true time, the creditor suffers loss, because he receives no interest for it ; if the time agreed on be before the true time, then the debtor suffers loss, because he receives no inter est for his early payment. Q. How is the operation wrought? A. Multiply each payment by its time, and divide the sum of all the products by the whole debt, the quotient is the equated time. EXAMPLES. 1. A owes B 1001 whereof 501 is to be paid at 2 months, and 50l at 4 months ; but they agreed to reduce them to one payment, when must the whole be paid ? Answer, three months. 2. A merchant hath owing to him 3001 to be paid as follows ; 501 at 2 months, 1001 at 5 months, and the rest at 8 months ; and it is agreed to make one payment of the whole ; I demand when that time must be ? Ans. 6 months. 3. F owes H 10001 whereof 2001 is to be paid present, 4001 at 5 months, and the rest at 10 months, but they agree to make one payment of the whole ; I demand the equated time ? Answer, 6 months. 4. K is indebted to L a certain sum which is to be discharged at 4 several payments, that is, i at 2 months. at 4 months, 1 at 6 months, and at 8 months ; but they agreeing to make up one payment of the whole, the equated time is therefore demanded ? Answer, 5 months. 5. I bought of X a quantity of goods upon trust, for which H was to pay fof the deht every three months, till the whole should be discharged; but they afterwards agreed to pay the whole at one equated time ; the time is demanded? Answer, 3 months. 6. W owes Z a sum of money, which is to be paid present, 1 at 4 months, and the rest at 8 months. What is the equated time for the whole ? Answer, 3 months. 7. P owes Q 4201 which will be due 6 months hence; dut P is willing to pay him 60l now, provided he can have the rest forborne à longer time ; it is agreed on; the time of forbearance therefore is required ? An. 7 months. Note l'his question is in Reverse Proportion See more of this Rule in Decimals, |
