per cent ?

COMPOUND INTEREST Is that which arises both from the principal and interest ; that is, when the interest is added to the principal at the end of the year, and on that amount the interest cast for another year and added as before ; and so on for any num

ber of years.

RULE.

Find the interest for 1 year, and add it to the principal ; call this the amount for the first year. Find the interest of this amount and add it thereto for the amount of the second : and so on for

any
number of

years. Subtract the original principal from the last amount, and the remainder will be the Compound Interest.

2. What will $125 amount to in 4 years, at 6 per cent per annum, compound interest ? Ans. $157,80c. 9m+

Ans. $95,50c. 8m. 6. What is the amount of $1000 for 4 years, at 6 per cent per annum, compound interest ?

Ans. $1262, 47c. 6 2.m. + Note. When there are months, or months and days, in the question, first find the amount for the years, and on that amount calculate the interest for the months, or months and days ; this interest added to the amount for the years will give the amount required.

7. What will $148,25 amount to in 3 years and 6 months, at 6 per cent?

Ans. $181,865+ 8. What is the compound interest of $500 for 4 years 2 months and 15 days, at 5 per cent ? Ans. $114,08+

per cent?

BY DECIMALS.

RULE.

Multiply the principal continually by the amount of $1 or £1 for one year, at the given rate per cent, until the number of multiplications is equal to the given number of years. Thus, at 5 per cent, the amount for 1 year is 1,05 ; at 6 per cent, it is 1,06, &c.

1. What will be the amount of $500 for 3 years, at 6 per cent per annum ?

Thus, 500 X 1,06 X 1,06 X 1,06=$595,508, Ans. Or, find the amount of $1, for 3 years, at 6 per cent per

annum,

1,06 amount for 1 year.

Note. Since the amount 1,06

of 2 dols. will be just twice 636

as much as 1 dollar, and 3 106

dollars 3 times as much as I 1,1236 amount for 2 yrs. that if we multiply the amount

dollar, and so on, it is evident 1,06

of $1 by any given number of 67416

dollars, we have the amount 11236

for that number of dollars. 1,191016 amount for 3 yrs. Thus, the amount of $1 for 3 years, at 6 per cent, is 1,191016; this, multiplied by $500, gives the amount $595,508, the same as in example 1st.

Hence we may have a Table showing the amount of £1 or $1, for any number of years, by which we inay easily find the amount of any snm for the same time, by multiplying the amount taken from the Table by the given sum.

DISCOUNT Is an allowance made for the payment of any sum of money before it becomes due. After the discount is de. ducted, the remainder is the present worth ; or, such a sum as, if put at interest, at the given rate and time, would amount to the given sum.

RULE.

1. As the amount of $100, or £100, at the given rate and time, is to the interest of 100, at the same rate and time, so is the given sum to the discount.

Subtract the discount from the given sum, and the remainder is the present worth. - Or by
