    Suppose a man has to pay Rs. 156 after 4 years and the rate of interest is 14% per annum. Clearly, Rs. 100 at 14% will amount to Rs. 156 in 4 years. So, the payment of Rs. 100 now will clear off the debt of Rs. 156 due 4 years hence. We say that:
    Sum due = Rs. 156 due 4 years hence;
    Present Worth (P.W.) = Rs. 100;
    True Discount (T.D.) = Rs. (156 - 100) = Rs. 56
    (Sum due) - (P.W.).
    We define : T.D. = Interest on P.W.
    Amount = (P.W.) + (T.D.).
    Interest is reckoned on P.W. and true discount is reckoned on the amount.

    IMPORTANT FORMULAE
    Let rate = R% per annum and Time = T years. Then,

    1. P.W.=[100 x Amount /100 + (R x T)
    =100 x T.D./ RxT

    2. T.D.=[(P.W.) x R x T /100]
    = [ Amount x RxT/100 + (R x T)]

    3.(S.I.)*(T.D.) /(S.I.)-(T.D.)

    4. (S.I.) - (T.D.) - S.I. on T.D.

    5. When the sum is put at compound interest, then
    P.W. = Amount/[1 +R/100]^T
