ANALYSIS. 168. 1. What is the interest of $60, for 5 months and 21 days, al 13 per cent. per annum ?

If the interest of $1 be 12 cents for 12 months, the interest of $1 for 1 month will be 1 cent, for 2 months 2 cents, for 3 înonths 3 cents and generally the number of months written as só many cents, or hundredths of a dollar, will be the interest for that time. And as the interest of $1

for Ino. 330 days) is 1 cent, the interest for any

number of days is so many 30ths of a cent, or 3ds of .057 rate.

a mill. In the present example we write the 5 months

as so many cents, or hundredths of a dollar, and dis 420

viding the days by 3, find of them to be 7, which 300

we write in the place of mills in the multiplier; and

$60 multiplied by $0.057, (the interest of $? for the $3.420 Ans. given time,) the product, $3.42, is evidently the inter

est of $60 for that time.

169. 2. What is the interest of $60 for 5 months and 21 days, al 6 per cent. per annum ?

Since interest at 12 per cent. (168) is found by multiplying by the whole number of months and of the days, interest at 6 per cent. being of 12, may evidently be found by multiplying by half the former multiplier, that is, by half the months written as cents, and one sixth of the days written

at the right hand. In the present example, half the 2) 60 months is 23, and if there were no odd days, we .028] should write down 2 cents, 5 mills, or 0.025 for the

multiplier ; but when there is an odd month and days, 480) as in the present case, it is as well to call the odd 120 month 30 days, and adding thereto the odd days. 30 divide the whole by 6, the quotient (30+21:6=84)

will be mills. $0.028; then is the interest of $1 for $1.710 Ans. 5 months 21 days, and 60 times $0.028., or $0.028.1

times 60, (86)=$1.71, is the interest of $60" for the same time. To multiply 60 by ), we take 1 of 60, or divide 68 by 2, and in general for the odd days, less than G, we take such part of the multipliand as the odd days are part of 6. Hence, 170. To compute the interest at 6 per cent. per annum upon

any sum for any time. RULE Under the principal write half the even number of months, for a multiplier, (pointing them as so many cents, or hundredths of a dollar.) If there be an odd month, call it 30 days, to which add the odd days, if any, and, dividing them by 6, write the quotient in the place of mills in the multiplier. Multiply the principal by this multiplier, and the product, pra perly pointed, (122) will be the interest for the given time.

NOTI.-Odd days less than 6 are so many 6ths of a mill, and to put ply by these, proceed as follows:

172. 1. What sum of money will amount to $31.35 in 9 months, on interest at 6 per cent. ?

As the amount of $1 for 9 months at 6 per cent. is $1.045, the principal, which will produce any other amount at the same rate in the same time is evidently as many dollars as the number of times $1.045 is contained in that amount, and $31.35; $1.045=$30. Ans. Hence,

I. The time, rate and amount being given, to find the principal. Rule.- Divide the given amount hy the amount of $1 for the given time and rate, and the quotient will be the principal required.

2. The amount for 8 months at 6 3. What principal will amount to per cent. was $598; what was the $1700 in 1 year and 3 months, at 3 principal ? Ans. $575.

Ans. $1600. 173. 1. What principal will gain $1.35 in 9 months at 6 per cent. !,

As $1 in 9 months will gain 80.045, as many dollars will be required to gain $1.36 in 9 months, as the number of times 1.35 contains 0.045 and $1,35; $0.015=$30. Ans. Hence,

II. The time, rate and interest being given, to find the principal. RULE.-Divide the interest, or gain, by the interest of 1 dollar for the given time and rale, and the quotient will be the principal.

2. Commission and Insurance.

DEFINITIONS. 176. Commission is an allowance of so much per cent. to an agent for transacting business for another.

Insurance is a contract by which certain persons, or companies, agree to make good losses of property by fire, storms, &c. in consideration of the payment to the insurer of so much per cent. on the value of the property insured.

Premium is the sum paid by the owner of the property for the insurance.

The written contract of insurance is called a policy.

The policy should always cover a sum equal to the estimated value of the property insured, together with the premium; that is, a policy to secure the payment of 100 dollars at 2 per cent must be made out for 102 dollars.
