Compute the interest on the principal sum, from the tin-3 when the interest commenced to the first time when a polyment was made, which exceeds either alone or in conjunction with the preceding payment (if any) the interest at that time due: add that interest to the principal, and from the sum subtract the payment made at that time, together with the preceding payments (if any) and the remainder forms a new principal; on which compute ard subtract the payments as upon the first principal, and proceed in this manner to the time of final settlement.”

so-The payments being applied according to this Rule, keep down the interest, and no part of the interest ever forms a part of the principal carrying interest.


Rule.—Multiply the given principal continually by the amount of one pound, or one dollar, for one year, at the rate per cent. given, until the number of multiplications are equal to the given number of years, and the product will be the amount required.

Or, in Table I, Appendix, find the amount of one dollar, or one pound, for the given number of years, which multiply by the given principal, and it will give the amount as before.

IS the multiplying any number with itself, and that product by the former multiplier; and so on; and the several products which arise are called powers.

The number denoting the height of the power, is called the index or exponent of that power. "

WHEN the root of any power is required, the business of finding it is called the Extraction of the Root. The root is that number, which by a continued multipli cation into itself, produces the given power. Although there is no number but what will produce a perfect power by involution, yet there are many numbers of which precise roots can never be determined. But, by the help of decimals, we can approximate towards the root to uly assigned degree of exactness. The roots which approximate are called surd roots, and hose which are perfectly accurate are called rational roots.

Co. III's 137 IGITT2531513.131513 To

Any number multiplied into itself produces a square.

To extract the square root, is only to find a number, which being multiplied into itself shall produce the given number.

Rule.—1. Distinguish the given number into periods of two figures each, by putting a point over the place of units, another over the place of hundreds, and so on; and o

there are decimals, point them in the same manner, from
units towards the right hand; which points show the num-
ber of figures the root will consist of
2. Find the greatest square number in the first, or left
mand period, place the root of it at the right hand of the
