Illustrate the Merchants' Rule for Partial Payments by an original problem. Discount and Present Worth. ART. 347.—Discount is a deduction made for the payment of a debt before it is due. ART. 348.-The Present Worth of a debt is the debt less the discount. ART. 349.—The True Present Worth of a debt, due at a future time without interest, is a sum which, if placed at legal interest, will amount to the debt at the time it becomes due. ART. 350.—The True Discount is the debt less the true present worth. as WRITTEN EXERCISES. 1. Find the true present worth and discount of $330, payable in 1 year and 8 months, at 6%. Analysis.Since Process. $1.10 is the amount $330 = $1.10 = $300, the present worth. of $1, at interest $330 $300 $30, the true discount. for 1 year and 8 Proof.—$300 x.10 = $30, the interest of months at 6%, it $300, for 1 year and 8 months, at 6%. will require many times $1 as $1.10 is contained times in $330, to amount to $330 in the same time and at the same rate. ART, 351.-Rule for finding the present worth and the true discount of a debt, payable at a future time.—Divide the debt by the amount of one dollar for the given time at the given rate, and the quotient is the present worth. The difference between the present worth and the debt is the true discount.

NOTE.-It is usual in business transactions for the seller to deduct a certain per cent. for cash. A payment made within 30 days after purchase is considered cash ; " spot cash” is payment when the goods are received and the invoice is found correct. Bank Discount. When a person wishes to borrow money from a bank, 'he submits his note, indorsed by some responsible party. The note is payable at a certain time after date. When discounted at a bank, three days of grace in most States are added to the time it has to run, and the interest on the face of the note for that period is deducted by the bank. The remainder is paid, or is placed to the credit of the one in whose favor the note is drawn. ART. 352.-Bank Discount is interest on the face of a note, deducted in advance, and reckoned from the date of discount to the date of payment including both days. ART. 353.—Days of Grace are the three days added to the time named in the note. ART. 354.–The Proceeds of a Note is the face less the discount. ART. 355.—The Term of Discount is the time which the note has to run after being discounted. ART. 356.—A Protest is a legal notice of the nonpayment of a note when due, and is made by a notarypublic to the indorser or indorsers of a note. When a note bearing interest is discounted by a bank, the sum discounted is the amount of the note at maturity. ART. 357.-To find the Bank Discount and the Pro ceeds of a Note. WRITTEN EXERCISES. 1.
