Case I.

[ocr errors]

To find how many of the last kind of coin, weight, or measure, mentioned in

the question, are equal to a given number of the first. RULE.*-Make the given number the third term. Of the other numbers, multiply all the antecedents together for the first term, and all the consequents together for the second ; then state the question, and proceed as in the Single Rule of Three.

* This and the following rule may often be abridged by cancelling where the same number is found among the antecedents and consequents. The proof is by several statements in the Single Rule of Three.'

INTEREST is a premium allowed for the use of money. It is computed at so many dollars a year for the use of each hundred dollars, called so much per cent. per annum.. The principal is the sum which is upon

interest.
The rate* is the per cent. per annum agreed on.
The amount is the principal and interest added together.
Interest is of two kinds, Simple and Compound.

1. SIMPLE INTEREST.

Simple Interest is that which is allowed for the principal only.

Case I.
To find the interest on any sum in Federal or English money.

Rule.t 1. Multiply the principal by the rate, and divide the product by 100, the quotient will be the interest for one year.

2. Multiply the interest thus found, by the number of years, and the product will be the interest for that time.

3. If there be months and days, for the former take proportional parts of the interest for one year, and for the latter, proportional parts of the interest for one month, allowing 30 days to a month.

* The rate is generally established by law. Six per cent. is the legal interest in the several New-England States, and this is to be understood in this work, where the rate is not mentioned. In New-York, legal interest is 7 per cent.

+ This rule is barely an application of the Single Rule of Three, or saying as 100, or £100, is to the rate, so is the principal to the interest for one year. EXAMPLE.--What is the interest of $250 for one year, at 6 per cent? As $100 : 6 :: 250 : Ans. $15. The reason for the remaining part of the rule must be obvious. When the months are not an quot part of a year, divide them into two such parts as shall be aliquot parts of a year, find the interest of those two, and add them together. The same may be done when the days are not an aliquot part of a month.“

Examples 1. What is the interest of $48.643 for 2 years, at 6 per cent per annum? Principal 48.643 To divide by 100, we have only to remove the Rate. 6 separatrix two figures from its natural place,

towards the left hand. Here the answer is 1/002/91 858 found to be 5 dollars, 83 cents, 7 mills, and 16 - 1 year's int. 2.91858 hundredths of a mill. All below mills is usually

rejected in practical operations. 2 yr's int. $5.83716 Ans.
