[blocks in formation]

2. Of $1080 for 3 yr. 9 mo. at 5%. 3. Of $720 for 2 yr. 8 mo. at 51%. 4. Of $840 for 4 yr. 7 mo. at 6%.

5. Of $1600 for 2 yr. 6 mo. 15 da. at 7%. 6. Of $3600 for 3 yr. 10 mo. 18 da. at 8%. 7. Of $4200 for 2 yr. 5 mo. 25 da. at 41%. 8. Of $1800 for 1 yr. 1 mo. 11 da. at 61%. 9. Of $2100 for 6 yr. 6 mo. 6 da. at 6%. 10. Of $2400 for 2 yr. 2 mo. 12 da. at 5%.

174. Exact Interest.

Exact Interest is interest obtained by reckoning 365 days to the year.

Exact Interest is used by the United States government and by many business men.

Common interest and exact interest for any number of years are the same. They differ only in periods of time less than a year.

Find the interest of $100 for 1 yr. at 5%.

the remainder will be exact interest.

Hence off from common interest will give exact interest.

WRITTEN EXERCISES.

1. Find the exact interest of $730 for 2 yr. 8 mo. 18 da.

[blocks in formation]

We find the common interest of $730 for 2 yr. by multiplying by .12, which is $87.60; and for 8 mo. 18 da. by multiplying by .043, which is $31.39.

Since off from common interest gives exact interest, we deduct from $31.39, leaving $30.96, the exact interest for 8 mo. 18 da. Adding.$87.60 and $30.96, the result is $118.56.

Find the exact interest of—

2. $850 for 10 mo. 24 da, at 6%.
3. $1260 for 2 yr. 8 mo. 18 da. at 4%.

4. $2400 for 3 yr. 9 mo. 15 da. at 7%.

5. $1560 from Mar. 1st to Nov. 25th at 8%.

6. $3330 from Jan. 4, 1888, to May 7, 1890, at 5%.

7. $960 from Mar. 12, 1890, to Dec. 20, 1890, at 51%. 8. $4080 from Dec. 11, 1892, to May 29, 1896, at 7%.
