of a sum of money before it is due^ is evidently equal to the dis^otmi of the debt

mediately due, or the first payment, till its interest shall be equal to the diteount

EXCHANGE.



THE object of Exchange is to ascertain what sum of money
ought to be paid in one country for a sum of different denomina-
tions or of different relative value received in another, according
to the course of exchange.

The par of exchange respects the intrinsic value of the money
of different countries compared with each other. Thus a pound
sterling is equal to 4 dolls, and 44 cents in the United States ; the
mark banco of Hamburgh, to 33^ cents ; 40 marks banco to £3
sterling. If the exchange be made at the intrinsic value of the
money of different countries, it is said to be at par; but if the mo-
ney of one country be estiniated. at less or more than its intrinsic
value, the exchange is said to be above par^' or below par,*

Owing to ehanges in the course of trade, to demand for money,
to variations in the relative value of gold and silver, &c. the rela-
tive value of the money of two countries is liable to frequent chao-
ges. Hence the course of exchange^ or the current price of ex-
change, must vary with these circumstances, and be sometimes
above, and sometimes below, par. Tables of the course of ex-
change are published daily in the great commercial cities.



* The RqW utukr Redaction of Coins are founded on tfaie par of exchange,
For th« redaction of the Money, and Measures of most commercial coiualries to
Federal and Sterling; Money, aiid American Measures, see also the Tables of

POLICIES OF INSURANCE.

INSURANCE is an assurance or security by a contract, to in-
demnify, for a specified sum, the insured for such losses as the
property may be exposied to, for a certain time.

The insurer pr nnderTatriter^ is the party that is bound to indem-
nify for the loss sustained.

The premium is the compensation paid by the insured for the
insurance.

The policy is the document by which the contract of insurance is
made.

Goods are s^tid to be corvered, when their value and the premium
and other charges are insured.

If the loss do not exceecl^v^ per cent, th.e underwriter is free,
and the loss is borne by the insured. Particular average, is the
proportioning of such losses as ^tUc from ordinary accidents at sea,

2. If a policy be taken out for ^781 26c, at 12J percent, requir-
ed the turn covered ?

78 1 •26X100— J 2^

As 100 : 100— 12J :; 701-26 : =^626, Ans.

100

Or, 781-25X100— 12 6=62500 ; and 626-00, Ans. as before.

CASE V.

When a given sum is adventured several voyages round from one place
to another y either at the same, or different risks, from place to place,
and it is required to take out a policy for suck a sum as will cover
the adventure all round, $upposing the risk out and home to be equal
and tantamount to the several given risks.

Rule.
1. Raise 1001. or glOO to that power denoted by the number of

risks, and mottiply the said power by the sum adventured, (or to

be covered) for a dividend*

POLICIES OF INSURANCE. 301

.$. Subtract the several premiums, each, from 1001. and multi-
ply the several remainders cobtinually together for a divisor, aod
the quotient, arising from this division, wUI give the policy to cov-
er the adventure the voyage round.*

Example.

A merchant adventured ^1500 from Boston to Philadelphia, at 3
per cent, from thence to Guadaleupe, at 4, from thence to Nantz, at
5, and from thence home at 6 per cent. ; For what sum must he
take out a policy to cover his adventure the vogage round, suppos*
ing the rjsk to be equal out and home^ and tantamount to the Sev-
eral given risks ?

100 X 100 X 100 X 100X1500

■= == — =gl803-835, Ans.

100— 3X100— 4X100— 3X100— () ^

CASE Vl.

When a given sum is adventured several voyages rounds as %n the last
casCy either at the samey or different risks^ from port to porty and
pie premium for the^ voyage round is required^ tantamount to the
several given rates per cent,

* It is evident that the polity to be taken out for the first voyage becomes the
sum for which a policy is to be taken out for the second voyage, and so on.
Hence the examples of this case are to be solved by the rule for Case II. making
the sum in the policy for the first voyage, the sum for which a policy is to be tak-
en out for the second voyage. Therefore the operation on the g;iiren example
would be as foUow4.

100—3X100 — 4 X 100—5 X 100—6 100— 3x 100—4 X 100— 5X 100—6
which is the Rule. The sam6 may be shown by the Double Rule of Three, thiis,

It is plain that however numerous the voyages, the power of 100 must be equal

. to their number, and tliat the divisor must always be the continued product of

the differences between 100 and the several rates of insurance. If the rate of in-

surance had been the same on each of the voya«;os, then the policyr-z — — -

ir the rate had been G per cent.
