The commission, for the purchase or sale of goods in the
city of New York, varies from 2J to 12 J per cent, and under
some circumstances even higher rates are paid.

sells stocks, uncurrent money, or bills of exchange, and is
generally reckoned at so much per cent on the par value of
the stock. The brokerage, in the city of New York, is gene-
rally one-fourth per cent on the par value of the stock.

EXAMPLES.

1. What is the commission on \$4396 at per 6 cent?

OPERATION.

NOTE. We here find the commission, as \$4396

in simple percentage, by multiplying by the de- Q g

cimal which expresses the rate per cent. :

Am. \$263.76.

2. A factor sells 60 bales of cotton at \$425 per bale, and
is to receive 2 J per cent commission : how much must he pay
over to his principal ?

3. A drover agrees to purchase a drove of cattle and to sell
them in New York city for 5 per cent on what he may re-
ceive ; he expends in the purchase \$4250, and sells them at
an advance of 10 per cent : how much is his commission ?

4. A commission merchant sells goods to the amount of
\$8750, on which he is to be allowed 2 per cent, but in con-
sideration of paying the money over before it is due, he is to
receive !- per cent additional : how much must he pay over
to his principal ?

5. A broken bank has a circulation of \$98000 and pur-
chases the bills a,t 85 per cent : how much is made by the
operation ?

248. What is commission ? What is brokerage ?

236 PERCENTAGE.

6. Merchant A sent to B, a broker, \$3825 to be invested in
stock ; B is to receive 2 per cent on the amount paid for the
stock : what was the value of the stock purchased ?

OPERATION.

ANALYSTS. Since the broker re- 1 .02)3825 .00(\$3750vl?is.

ceives 2 per cent, it will require 306

\$1.02 to purchase 1 dollar's worth

of stock; hence, there will be as 765

many dollar's worth purchased as 714
\$1.02 is contained times in \$3825 ;
that is, \$3750 worth.

7. Mr. Jones sends his broker \$18560 to be invested in
U. S. Stocks, which are 15 per cent above par ; the broker is
to receive one per cent ; how many shares of \$100 each can
be purchased ?

ANALYSIS. Since the premium is 15
per cent, and the brokerage 1 per cent, OPERATION.

each dollar of par value will cost \$1 1.16)18560
plus the premium, plus the brokerage^

\$1.16 : hence, the amount purchased ' quotient,

wiU be as many dollars as \$1.16 is or, 160 shares,
contained times in \$18560.

8. I have \$4999.89 to be laid out in stocks, which are 15
per cent below par : allowing 2 per cent commission, how
much can be purchased at the par value ?

ANALYSIS. Since the stock is at a dis-
count of 15 per cent, the market value will OPERATION.
be 85 per cent ; add 2 per cent, the broker- . 87)4999.89
age, gives 87 per cent=.87. The amount v-^ . ^ .

purchased will be as many dollars as .87 is
contained times in \$4999,89.

Hence, to find the amount at par value,

Divide the amount to be expended by the market value of
\$1 plus the brokerage ; and the quotient ivill be the amount
in par value.

9. Messrs. Sherman & Co. received of Mr Gilbert \$28638.50
to be invested in bank stocks, which are 12i per cent above
par, for which they are to receive one-fourth of one per cent
commission : how many shares of \$127 each can they buy ?

LOSS OR GAIN. 237

10. The par value of Illinois Railroad stock is 100. It
sells in market at 72 J : if I pay J per cent brokerage, how
many shares can I buy for \$5820 ?

PROFIT AND LOSS.

249. Profit or loss is a process by which merchants dis-
cover the amount gained or lost in the purchase and sale of
goods. It also instructs them how much to increase or
diminish the price of their goods, so as to make or lose so
much per cent.

EXAMPLES.

1. Bought a piece of cloth containing 75?/d. at \$5.25 per
yard, and sold it at \$5.75 per yard : how much was gained

OPERATION.

ANALYSIS. We first find tho \$5.75 p r i ce of 1 yard,
profit on a single yard, and then AC op; oc .^ n f i vnrf i
multiply by the number of yards, !^_ co
which is *5. 50cfe. profit on 1 yard :

then, \$0.50x75=\$37.50.

2. Bought a piece of calico containing 56 yards, at 27 cents
a yard : what must it be sold for per yard to gain \$2.24 ?

OPERATION.

56 yards at 27 cents=\$15.12

ANALYSIS. First find the Profit - 2.24

cent, will be what that which cost 1 dollar sold .85) 170
for, viz., \$0.85 : hence, there will be as many
dollars of cost, as .85 is contained times in
what the goods brought.

Hence, to find the cost,

Divide the amount received by 1 plus the per cent ivhen
there is a gain, and by 1 minus the per cent when there
is a loss, and the quotient will be the cost.

EXAMPLES.

1. Bought a piece of cassimere containing 28 yards at
1 dollars a yard ; but finding it damaged, am willing to sell
it at a loss of 15 per cent : how much must be asked per
yard?

2. Bought a hogshead of brandy at \$1.25 per gallon, and
sold it for \$78 : was there a loss or gain ?

3. A merchant purchased 3275 bushels of wheat for which
he paid \$3517.10, but finding it damaged, is willing to lose
10 per cent : what must it sell for per bushel ?

4. Bought a quantity of wine at \$1.25 per gallon, but it
proves to be bad and am obliged to sell it at 20 per cent less
than I gave : how much must I sell it for per gallon ?

5. A farmer sells 125 bushels of corn for 75 cents per
bushel ; the purchaser sells it at an advance of 20 per cent :
how much did he receive for the corn ?

6. A merchant buys 1 tun of wine for which he pays \$725,
and wishes to sell it by the hogshead at an advance of 15 per
cent : what must be charged per hogshead ?

7. A merchant buys 158 yards of calico for which he pays
20 cents per yard ; one-half is so damaged that he is obliged
to sell it at a loss of 6 per cent : the remainder he sells at an
advance of 19 per cent : how much did he gain?

8. If I buy coffee at 16 cents and sell it at 20 cents a
pound, how much do I make per cent on the money paid ?

250. Knowing the per cent of gain or loss and the amount received
how do you find the cost ?

9. A man bought a house and lot for \$1850.50, and sold it
for \$1517.41 : how much per cent did he lose ?

10. A merchant bought 650 pounds of cheese at 10 cents
per pound, and sold it at 12 cents per pound : how much did
he gain on the whole, and how much per cent on the money
laid out ?

11. Bought cloth at \$1.25 per yard, which proving bad, I
wish to sell it at a loss of 18 per cent : how much must I

10 gallons of which leaked out. At what price per gallon
must the remainder be sold that I may clear 10 per cent on
the cost ?

spoiled, I am willing to lose 5 per cent : how much must I
sell it for per yard ?

14. Bought 67 yards of cloth for \$112, but a number of
yards being spoiled, I sell the remainder at \$2.216| per yard,
and lose 5 per cent : how many yards were spoiled ?

15. Bought 2000 bushels of wheat at \$1.75 a bushel, from
which was manufactured 475 barrels of flour : what must
the flour sell for per barrel to gain 25 per cent on the cost of
the wheat ?

INSURANCE.

251. INSURANCE is an agreement, generally in writing, by
which an individual or company bind themselves to exempt
the owners of certain property, such as ships, goods, houses,
&c., from loss or hazard.

The POLICY is the written agreement made by the parties.

PREMIUM is the amount paid by him who owns the property
to those who insure it, as a compensation for their risk. The
premium is generally so much per cent on the property in-
sured.

EXAMPLES.

1. What would be the premium for the insurance of a
house valued at \$8754 against loss by fire for one year, at
\ per cent ?

effects an insurance on the remainder at 5| per cent ; what

10. My furniture, worth \$3440, is insured at 2f per cent ;

INTEREST. 241

INTEREST.

252. INTEREST is an allowance made for the use of money
that is borrowed.

PRINCIPAL is the money on which interest is paid.
AMOUNT is the sum of the Principal and Interest.
For example : If I borrow 1 dollar of Mr. Wilson for 1
year, and pay him 7 cents for the use of it ; then,

1 dollar is the principal,

7 cents is the interest, and

\$1.07 the amount.

The RATE of interest is the number of cents paid for the
use of 1 dollar for 1 year. Thus, in the above example, th*e
rate is 7 per cent per annum.

NoTE.-VThe term per cent means, ty the hundred; and per
annum means by the year. As interest is always reckoned by the
year, the term per annum is understood and omitted.

CASE I.

253. To find the interest of any principal for one or more
years.

1. What is the interest of \$1960 for 4 years, at 7 per
cent?

ANALYSIS. The rate of interest

being 7 per cent, is expressed deci- OPERATION.

mallyby.07: hence, each dollar, in \$1960

1 year will produce .07 of itself, and A 7 rq fp

\$1960 will produce .07 of \$1960,

or \$137.20. Therefore, \$137.20 is the 137.20 int. for It/r.

interest for 1 year, and this interest 4 No. of years,

multiplied by 4, gives the interest for AC 4 Q Qft

4 years : hence, the following \$D48.U

RULE. Multiply the principal by the rate, expressed
decimally, and the product by the number of years.

NOTE. When there are years and months, and the months are
aliquot parts of a year, multiply the interest for 1 year by the years
and months reduced to the fraction of a year.

EXAMPLES.

254. To find the interest on a given principal for any rate
and time.

1. What is the interest of \$876.48 at 6 per cent, for
4 years 9 months and 14 days ?

ANALYSIS. The interest for 1 year is the product of the princi-
pal multiplied by the rate If the interest for 1 year be divided
by 12, the quotient will be the interest for 1 month : if the interest
for 1 month be divided by 30, the quotient will be the interest
for 1 day.

The interest for 4 years is 4 times the interest for 1 year ; the
interest for 9 months, 9 times the interest for 1 month ; and the
interest for 14 days, 14 times the interest for 1 day

II. Divide this interest by 12, and the quotient will be the
interest for 1 month :

III. Divide the interest for 1 month by 30, and the quo-
tient will be the interest for 1 day.

IY. Multiply the interest for 1 year by the number of
years, the interest for 1 month by the number of months, and
the interest for 1 day by the number of days, and the sum
of the product will be the required interest.

NOTE. In computing interest the month is reckoned at 30 days.

255. There is another rule resulting from the last analysis,
which is regarded as the best general method of computing
interest.

RULE. I. Find the interest for 1 year and divide it bylZ:
the quotient will be the interest for 1 month.

II. Multiply the interest for 1 month by the time expressed
in months and parts of a month, and the product will be the
required interest.

NOTE, Since a month is reckoned at 30 days, any number of
days is reduced to decimals of a month by dividing the days by 3.

the interest on a bond or note, when partial payments have
and in most of the other states.

256. How do you find the interest when the principal is in pounds,
shillings and pence ?

248 PARTIAL PAYMENTS.

RULE. I. Compute the interest on the principal to the
time of the first payment, and if the payment exceed this
interest, add the interest to the principal and from the sum
subtract the payment : the remainder forms a new principal :

II. But if the payment is less than the interest, take no
notice of it until other payments are made, which in all,
shall exceed the interest computed to the time of the last
payment : then add the interest, so computed, to the princi-
pal, and from the sum subtract the sum of the payments :
the remainder will form a new principal on which interest
is to be computed as before.

NOTE In computing interest on notes, observe that the day on
which a note is dated and the day on which it falls due, are not
both reckoned in determining the time, but one of them is always
excluded. Thus, a note dated on the first day of May and falling
due on the 16th of June, will bear interest but one month and
1 5 days.
