Ratio is the simple interest of ll. for one year; or in fe-
deral money, of $1 for one year, at the rate per cent. agreed
on.

RULE. Multiply the principal, ratio and time continually toge. ther, and the last product will be the interest required.

5. Required the amount of 648 dollars 50 cents for 123 years, at 5į per cent. per annum ? Ans. $1103, 26 cts.

CASE II. The amount, time and ratio given, to find the principal. Rule.—Multiply the ratio by the time, add unity to the product for a divisor, by which.sum divide the amount, and the quotient will be the principal.

EXAMPLES.

1. What principal will amount to 1235,975 dollars, in 5 years, at 6 per cent. per annum ? $

Ans. £645 15s.

CASE III. The amount, principal and time given, to find the ratio.

Rule.--Subtract the principal from the amount, divide the ro. mainder by the product of the time and principale and the quotient will bo the ratio.

EXAMPLES. 1. At what rate per cent. will 950,75 dollars amount to 1230,975 dollars in 5 years ?

Ans. 5) per cent.

CASE IV. The amount, principa , and rate per cent. given, to find

the time. Rule.-Subtract the principal from the amount; divide the remainder by the product of the ratio and principal; and the quotient will be the time.

EXAMPLES. 1. In what time will 950 dols. 75 cts. amount to 1235 lollars, 97,5 cents, at 6 per cent. per annum ?

Froin the amount $1235,975
Take the principal 950,75

TO CALCULATE INTEREST FOR DAYS. RULE.-Multiply the principal by the given number of days, and that product by the ratio ; divide the last product by 365 (the numper of days in a year) and it will give the interest required.

EXAMPLES 1. What is the interest of 3601. 10s. for 146 days, at 6 pr. ct.)
