CHAPTER LI.

From some of the examples in the preceding three chapters the pupil may have noticed that at 6% any sum of money in 2 months, that is, of a year, will gain 1%, or 0.01 of itself. In other words to find the interest at 6% of any sum of money for 2 months, we take ido of the sum, that is, we move the decimal point two places to the left. Thus the interest of $25 for 2 months is $0.25.

1. At 6% find the interest for 2 months of $10. $84. $876. $5533. 50. 73.

As 6 days is in of 60 days (2 months) for 6 days at 6% any sum of money will gain of 1%, or 0.001 of itself. In other words to find the interest of any sum of money at 6% for 6 days, we take iooo of the sum, that is, we move the decimal point three places to the left. Thus the interest of $20 for 6 days is $0.02.

5. At 6% find the interest for 6 days of

If any other than 6% is required, first get the interest at 6%, and then find such part of the result as the given per cent is of 6%. Thus, for 2% take 1 of 6% ; for 3% of 6%. For 4% deduct } of the result at 6%. For 5% deduct of the result at 6%. It may be easier to divide the given time, or the given principal. Thus, 2% for 9 months is the same as 6% for 3 months; 5% for 24 months is the same as 6% for 20 months. $10 at 3% is the same as $5 at 6%.

16. At 2% find the interest of $540 for 6 mths. 18 dys. 9 mths. 27 dys. 2 mths, 6 dys. 3 mths. 18 dys. 12 mths 18 dys. 1 mth. 12 dys.

17. At 3% find the interest of $1200 for 4 mths. 12 dys. 8 mths. 12 dys. 3 mths. 6 dys. 6 mths. 24 dys. 10 mths. 24 dys. 5 mths. 18 dys.
