AN annuity is a yearly income arising from money &c and is either paid for a term of years, or upon a life Annuities or pensions are said to be in arrears when they are payable or due either yearly, half yearly, or quarterly, and are unpaid for any number of payments. Here U represents the annuity, pension, or yearly rent, A, T, R, as before. Case 10. When U, R, and T are given, to find A. tiu - tu When the annuity, &c. is to be paid half-yearly, or quarterly, then for half-yearly payments take half the ratio, half the annuity, &c. and twice the number of years; and for quarterly payments take a fourth part of the ratio, a fourtla part of the annuity, and four times the number of years ; which work with as per theorem, EXAMPLES. (26) If 2501. yearly rent, pension, &c. be forborne or unpaid 6 years, what will it amount to in that time, at 3 per cent. for each payment, as it becomes due? (27) If a salary of 250l. payable every half-year remain un paid for 6 years, what would it amount to in that time, at 3 per cent. per annum ? (28) If a salary of 250l. payable every quarter, were left un paid for 6 years, what would it amount to in that time, at 3 per cent, per annum ? It may be observed, by comparing the answers of the three ļast Examples, that the half-yearly payment is more advantageous than the yearly one, and also the quarterly more than the half-yearly. Case 11. When A, R, and T are given, to find U. When the payments are half-yearly, take 4a; if quarterly, | $; and proceed with the ratio and time as before. K |
