is an allowance made for the use of money. In computing interest
four things are to be particularly observed; viz. principal, time,
rate per cent., and amount. Principal is the sum for which interest
is to be computed... Rate per cent, per annum is the interest of
100 dollars or pounds for 1 year. Time is the number of years,
months, &c. for which interest is to be computed. Amount is the
principal and interest added together. Case 1. When the time is one
year, and the rate per cent is any number of dollars or pounds.
Rule.--Multiply the dollars or pounds by the rate per cent, and
divide by 10O, the quotient will be the interest for one year.
Note.--When the rate for cent, is not equal to a whole number, but
consists of a fraction, such as a, or f, the aliquot parts of the
principal must be taken; after which divide by 100 for the
interest. Note 2.---When the rate per cent, is any number of
dollars or pounds, and-1,, or, say 4, 4j, or 4-J per cent.,
multiply the principal by the whole number, and add i, or of the
principal to the product, then divide the answer by 100 as
