TARE and T R E T.
Tare and Tret are practical rules for deducting certain allowances, which are made by merchants and tradesmen in selling their goods by weight.
Tare is an allowance, made to the buyer, for the weight of the box, barrel or bag, &c. which contains the goods bought, and is either at so much per box, &c. at so much per cwt. or at so much in the gross weight.
Tret is an allowance of 410 in every 1041t for waste, dust, &c.
Cloff is an allowance of 2ft upon every 3 cwt.
Gross weight is the whole weight of any fort of goods, together with the box, barrel or bag, &c. which contains them.
Suttle is when part of the allowance is deducted from the grofs.
Neat weight is what remains after all allowances are: made.
When the tare is at so much per box, barrel or bag, &c. Multiply the number of boxes, barrels, &c. by the tare, and subtract the product from the gross, and the remainder will be the neat weight required.

When the tare is at so much per cwt.--Divide the gross weight by the aliquot parts of a cwt. Subtract the
quotient from the grofs, and the remainder will be the neat weight.
