Divide the given sum by 100, and it will give the interest at 1l. per cent. which interest you must take parts from, with the rate per cent, and add them together; the sum will be the brokerage required. EXAMPLES, (9) What is the brokerage of 4201. 12s. 6d. at 6s. 4d. per cent. ? (10) Suppose I employ a broker, who sells goods for me, to the value of locol., what may he demand for brokerage, it being at 4s. 6d. per cent. ? (11) Suppose a broker disposes of goods for me, to the amount of 5401. 10s. what comes the brokerage to, at 13s. 10d. per cent. ? (12) What is the brokerage of 24741. 158. at 19s. 9 d. per cent.? INSURANCE IS a contract or agreement whereby one or more persons, called insurers, &c. oblige themselves to answer for the loss or damage of ships, houses, goods, &c. by storms, fires, &c, in consideration of a premium paid by the proprietors of the thing injured.

Find the interest for the years, as in Case 1, then for 5, 5, or $, take parts from the interest of one year; i, e. for }, take one-fourth part of the said interest; for ļ, take onehalf; and for $, take the compound parts of , that is, a half for }, then half of that for 1, which, added to the interest for years (if any), the sum will be the interest required. EXAMPLES. (21) What is the interest of 4271. 10s. for four months, at 4 per cent. per annum ? (22) What is the interest of 2461. 12s. 6d. for 14 year at 5 per cent. per annum ?

Now I should be glad to know what is due to me. (24) A gentleman dying left his daughter 6041. 178. 6d. for her fortune, to be paid her when at age, with interest, at 5 per cent. per annum. Now she came of age in 3 years 9 months after her father's death. What is the amount of her fortune ? that, is, What is she to receive in all, principal and interest. Case 5. When the interest required is for any number of weeks. RULE. 1. Find the interest of the given sum for a year, as in Case 1. 2. Say, as 52 weeks : are to that interest of the given sum :: so are the weeks given : to the interest required. Or you may divide the given weeks into aliquot parts of a year, or 52 weeks, EXAMPLES. (25) What is the interest of 4001. 15s. for 4 weeks at 4 per cent. per annum? (26) What is the amount of 6001. for 26 weeks, at 34 per cent, per annum?

To find the interest of any sun, for number of days. RULE. 1. Say, As 365 days; are to the interest of the given sum for a year :: so are the days given : to the interest required. 2. When convenient, divide the days into aliquot parts of a year, or 355. Or, 3. Reduce the principal into pence, which multiply by the number of days, and that product by the rate per cent for a dividend: then multiply 365 (the days in a year) by 199 for a divisor, by which divide the dividend, and the quotient will be the answer in pence, which bring to pounds. Or, 4. Multiply the given sum by the number of days, and 100 X 305 divide the product by 7300 (viz.- -) the quotient will give the interest at 5 per cent, and for a higher or lower rate, take aliquot parts for a difference, which add or subtract accordingly. 5 A TABLE of Days for any given time less than a Year. 1 113200 91121|152 182213244274 305 335 21 233611 92221531832142452751306 336) 31 33162 931231154184215 246/276307337 441351631 441124155180216 247 277308338 51 53616 | 95/125 150 186 21712481278 309|339) 037/6, 961201157 187/218 249279310|3401 71 7341061 971127158188219250280311|341 8 839107) 98128 159 189 220 251 2813121342 9 9tlus 99|123100190221 252 282|3131343 1101051013011011911--222532833141344 11-170101|13 16 29 223 254 284 315 345 1211 +371102132 163 1 3 224 255/285|316346 13131417 10313316 +1441225256286 317 347 Ulitt 1710413+ 105 19.5 226237128713181348 15 3 +67410 :35 160196 227 258288 319|349 16||16+77.) 01361.71 97 228 25 112891320 350 171117 +817 107 137 168198/229200120 321 351 1818 + 771108138169|194301261 291322352 1911:450710! 13917012001231262292|323/353 201205117s1 101140 171 20123220329332+354 121.121528.Ul141 172202233 2641 94|325/355 22225361112142173203 234 265 295/326/356 2323151821113143 174/20H-35266|29013271357 124124155181141441751205/236267127 328 358 125 12556811151145 17620023712681298 29 359 2011-057185116140177 207 38|26 29,330 360 12712758801171471781208234 270300 331 361 28|2857871118148 17 20.1240271 3011334362 292-0018811949 184 210-412721302333363 1301301 1841 2015018114111242273303334/364 131||311 901 1151 212243 1304 36,5 |
