(64) A fine for a lease of a tenement is settled at 1537. under a reserved rent of 16. a-year. Now the tenant cannot conveniently pay more than 501.; but for the 6 years to come of the term, is willing rather to pay an adequate rent, computing 10l. per cent. per compound interest. What ought that rent to be? (65) Another lease for 7 years is agreed for at 250l. Fine, on the old rent 447. a-year; but considering the contractor desires to reduce the rent to 201. a-year, and pay a proper fine, computing as before, after the rate of 101. a-year; to what must the fine be advanced? (66) A son, previcus to his marriage, is inclined to have 50l. a-year freehold settled on his family; and to have immediate possession of it, offers his father, in lieu, an annuity for his life, valued at 12 years' purchase, discounting at 4 per cent. thereon: whereas he is content the estate should be valued at a discount of 3 per cent. and consequently will be worth 33 years' purchase. Pray what had the father for his life?

In 14 years after that, his wife dying, he again renewed it in favour of his daughter, then 7 years of age; and by the time she was 19, it was a third time renewed in order to her settlement. The question is, what money the society must have received from this family from first to last, allowing 51. a-year discount on the fines. GEOMETRICAL DEFINITIONS. GEOMETRY contains the nature and properties of lines, angles, surfaces, and solids. A point is that which has no parts nor magnitude. A line is length conceived without breadth, An angle is the mutual inclination of two lines which meet. When a straight line, as CD (Fig. 4.), standing upon another, A B, makes the angles, ADC, and CDB, on each side equal to one another, each of these equal angles is called a right angle, and the dotted line, CD, is said to be perpendicular to the line A B. An angle is commonly expressed by three letters; that placed at the angular point being always wrote in the middle, as ADC (Fig. 4.) denotes the angle b. An obtuse angle is that which is greater than a right angle, as CAB (Fig. 3.). An acute angle is that which is less than a right angle, as DCB (Fig. 4.). Parallel lines are those of which every point of the one is at the same distance from the other, as the lines A B and CD (Fig. 2.). |
