PRACTICE RULE.

the even number of 30 to the number of of 1 per cent. by

Multiply 1 per cent. of the principal by months, and if there is an odd month, add days. Divide the days by 6, and multiply the quotient. If there are any remaining days, take as many 60ths of 1 per cent. Add the numbers so obtained, and their sum will be the interest at 6 per cent. For any other rate, increase or diminish the result, as in the Bank Rule.

the

1 per cent., or the interest for 2 months, is $97.6325. Multiplying by 16, we obtain interest for 2y. 8mo. The 1mo. remaining, added to the 8 days, gives 38 days, in which 6 is contained 6 times, with 2 remainder. As $1623.9539 the interest for 6 days is .1 of 1 per cent., or $9.763+, the interest for 36 days is 6 times as much. The 2 remaining days are of 60 days, we therefore add of $9.763+.

PARTIAL PAYMENTS.

When partial payments have been made upon notes that are settled within a year from their date, it is customary to compute interest upon the whole note, and also on each payment, until the time of settlement, and deduct the amount of the payments from the amount of the principal. This is the equitable rule for all periods of time, but the following is the

LEGAL RULE.*

If any payment exceeds the interest due, deduct it from the amount, and compute interest on the balance. If the payment is less than the interest, add the excess to the succeeding interest, and continue the interest on the former principal.
