Since days are always either 30ths of a month, or some greater part, as halves, 3ds, 4ths, 5ths, &c.; thus, i day=3t; 2 days= o, which, being reduced to its lowest terms, is I's; 3 days= , or TV i 5 days=z, or ; 20 days = , or ş; it follows, that, if these parts be diminished in the same proportion as the months, that is, if half the fractional part be taken for a multipier, the product will express the interest for the days in cents, or 100ths, which, divided by 100, as before, will be the in terest required. To halve any thing, we divide by 2. Multiply the denominator, or divide the numerator. 1. What is the interest of $60 for 15 days? $60 15 days = 35 or 1 mo. +2 = , multiplier. 1 Ans. ,15. 2.

The foregoing example, although it is as difficult a'one as usually occurs, is golved by one third of the usual number of figures required by other methods. 1 yr. ILXIII. It is evident, that, when the rate is either more or les than 6 per cent., the interest for the given rate will be a certain part of 6 por cent. ; thus, 5 per cent. will be as much as 6 per cent., 4 per cent. much, 7 per cent. Z as much, &c. get , of any number, we multiply by the n'merator, and divide by the denominator; and, as the denominator will always be 0, and the numorator the given rato, hence, To find the interest of any sum, when the rate is not 6 per cent., we have the following RULE. A. Multiply the interest of 6 per cent. by the given rate, and always dividc by 6. 1.

A concise and practical Rule for the State of Nero York, in which the interest is established by law at 7 per cent.
