For what sum must a note be drawn, payable in 60 days, without interest, that the avails may equal $ 591.60 when the note is discounted at a bank at 8% ? WRITTEN WORK. Explanation. - The Bank discount of $1 for 63 d. = $ 0.014 bank discount of $1 for Avails of $1 for 63 d. 0.986 63 days at 8% is $0.014; $ 591.60 = $0.986 = 600 hence, the avails of $1 discounted will be $ 1 Ans. $ 600. minus $0.014, which equals $0.986. Since the avails of $1 are $0.986, that the avails may be $591.60 the note must be drawn for as many dollars as there are times $0.986 in $591.60, which is 600. Ans. $ 600. * See Art. 581, note. 584. From the foregoing may be derived the following Rule.

For other examples in bank discount, see page 253. COMMERCIAL DISCOUNT. 587. Business men are usually allowed a deduction for making cash payment for goods purchased on time. Notes also not bearing interest are discounted by the deduction of a certain per cent, not wholly depending upon the time. Such a deduction is called business or commercial discount. 588. Examples for the Slate. 121. A merchant bought a lot of goods amounting to $ 124, on 30 days' credit; 5% discount on the price was allowed for making payment at the time of purchase.

If from the retail price of a book 20% is deducted, and a discount of 10% made upon the balance, and then the book sells for $1.33, what is the retail price ? COMPOUND INTEREST. 589. A sum of $ 500 was loaned at 7%, interest payable annually. At the end of the first year the interest for that year was added to the principal, and upon the amount as a new principal the interest was reckoned for the second year. The amount for the second year formed a new principal, upon which interest was reckoned for the next six months, at the end of which time the note, with interest, was paid. What was the amount then due? What was the interest gained ? WRITTEN WORK. $ 500. 35. 535. 37.45 Principal 572.45 20.0357 $ 592.49 1st Ans. 500. $ 92.49 2d Ans. 590. Interest upon both interest and principal, the sum of the two forming a new principal for specified periods of time, is compound interest. In the example above the interest is compounded annually. It may be compounded semi-annually, or for any period of time agreed upon. 591. From the operation above may be derived the following Rule. 1. Find the amount of the given principal for the first period of time. With this as a new principal, find the |
