applicable rate in column (f) for the applicable mileage multiplied by the number of hundredweight transported.

To illustrate : The amount of reimbursement for the transportation of 1,800 pounds, net, for 100 miles is computed by using the applicable rate in column (d), $4.69 (since 1,800 pounds exceeds the applicable column (c) weight, 1,735 pounds) and the minimum hundredweight of column (d), 20. The amount so computed is $93.80. The amount of reimbursement for the transportation of 1,700 pounds, net, a distance of 100 miles is the product of the applicable rate in column (b), $5.41 (since 1,700 pounds does not exceed the applicable weight in column (c), 1,735 pounds) multiplied by the net hundredweight transported, 17. The amount SO computed is $91.97.

Additional Allowances Island Shipments. To the amount of reimbursement computed from the foregoing table add (a) $3.50 per hundred pounds for each shipment by common carrier having Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, as its origin or destination, or (b) $5.00 per hundred pounds for each shipment by common carrier having its origin or destination on any other island of one of the coastal States that can be reached by motor carrier transportation only by use of ferry or ship.

Metropolitan Areas. To the amount of reimbursement computed from the foregoing table add (a) 30 cents per hundred pounds for each shipment by common carrier originating or terminating, or both, in one of the areas described below, or (b) add 60 cents per hundred pounds for each shipment by common carrier originat. ing in one of the areas described below and terminating in another of such areas:
