TABLES OF DISTANCES, EXPECTATION OF LIFE, INFLUENCE OF THE MOON, Etc. 237

Expectation of Life and Present Value of Widow's Dewer.

as she may live, it becomes necessary that some definite calculation be made as to how long the widow will probably live to receive this intercst. This matter being determined, a calculation can readily be made as to how much she is entitled to at present, which being ascertained, the estate can be satisfactorily settled. To illustrate, by the above table, which is generally adopted in the settlement of estates, it will be seen that, if the widow bc 60 years of age, she will probably live 15 and 45.100 years longer, or until her age is 75 and 45-100 years.

By the following table is given the value of an annuity of one dol. lar from 1 to 35 years at 5 per cent. per annum. Thus for 15 years the value of one dollar will be $10.3796. Suppose the widow's dower interest in the estate to be $100 per year. To find the present value of the widow's interest, therefore, multiply the $100 by 10.3796, and the result is $1,037.96, which is the amount that the widow is entitled to in the settlement.
