COMMERCIAL TABLES.

UNIVERSAL INTEREST TABLES, For calculating interest on pounds, dollars, francs, florins, tf*c, for any number of days, and at any rate per cent. Computed and arranged for the Merchants' Magazine, by D. J. Browne.

[merged small][table][merged small][table]

Explanations.—The sum opposite 1 in the index under the head of units, denotes the interest on £100, $100, etc., for one day at one per cent, as predicated on 365 days to a year; the sum under tens, that of £1000, etc.; the sum opposite 2 in the index under units, that of £200, $200; the sum under tens, that of £2000, &c.

Rule.—Multiply the principal by the rate per cent, and the number of days for which you wish to know the interest. Point off two figures from the right, when there are no shillings, cents, nor centimes, and then take from the table the sums corresponding to the index and the notations at the head, which, being added, will give the interest required. Should the principal contain cents, or centimes, let it be multiplied by the rate and time, pointing off four places from the right, and proceed as above directed. If there are shillings and pence in the principal, reduce them to the decimal of a pound, and operate as above.

Tables for reducing Shillings, Pence, and Farthings to the decimal of a pound.

TABLE A.

[ocr errors][table]
[table]

Explanations.—Tables A and B show the decimal value of the number ornhillingH, pence, and Tractiona expreAsed therein, without further computation. If a greater number of shillings is contained in tho euro, intm■ml of the 0 initial nt tho let'r hand of each decimal in the tables, MibatUute one half ol the number of even •hilliiiKt in table A, and one half ofthe number of shillings, lens one, if odd, in table B, and Mm; r^^'d decimals will bo obtained. Thus, the decimal value of Hi*. *M.=0.H3tU58 of a pound; and ol 17s. 10id.=«.8lrJ,08 of a pound. For common purposes, it is not necessary to use more than three decimal figures; conactiuenuy, the last three may be omitted.
