What sum was still due August 1st, 1877? REM.—When there are partial payments on a note, and whenever the payment is greater than the interest, it is computed until the time of the payment and added to the principal, from which the payment is deducted, and the balance is then regarded as the principal of the note. When the payment is less than the interest, the interest must be computed until all the payments are greater than the interest, and then add interest and principal, and from their sum deduct the sum of all the payments, and the balance is then regarded as the principal of the note. 5740.35 .061 2370.175 28442.10 308.12275 4740.35 5048.47275 2000 3048.47275, Prin .121 15.24236375 365.8167300 381.06 3048.47 $3429.53 Due August 1st, 1879. $5640.50.

PAYSON. 1870 Oct. 1st, forty 3% dollars. 1873 Oct. 1st, one thousand dollars. What sum is due Oct. 1st, 1875? The first payment is made when there is no interest. As the other payments do not equal the interest until Oct. 1st, 1873, the interest is computed until that time. The note is due Oct. 1st, 1870, when there is a payment which must be deducted.

In all places the years and months are computed alike, but in New York and several other States, the days are in their ratio to 363 instead of 360. 1.

IST PRINCIPLE.—The interest is equal to the product of the principal, rate, and time; that is, the interest is the product of three factors. 2D PRINCIPLE.—Any one of these factors may be found by dividing the product of the three factors by the product of the other two. Cor. 1.-If the interest is divided by the product of the principal and rate, the quotient is the time; thus, 6 = 1 year = time. Cor. 2.-If the interest is divided by the product |
