two investments were made totaling 8800 dollars. for a certain year these investments yielded 1326
dollars in simple intrest. part of the 8800 was ivested at 14% and part at 16%.

Let

Given

## 14x + 140800-16x = 132600

-2x=132600-140800

-2x=-8200

-2x/-2=-8200/-2

x=4100

Check

=====

## 4100*14 + 4700*16 = 132600

57400+75200=132600
132600=132600

two investments were made totaling \$15,000. For a certain year these investments yielded \$1432 in
simple intrest. part of the \$15,000 was invested at 9% and part at 10%. find the amount invested at each
rate

## -0.01P=-68 divide both sides by -0.01

P=\$6800---------------------amount invested at 9%

## 15000-P=15000-6800=\$8200----------------amount invested at 10%

CK

6800*0.09+8200*0.10=1432

\$612+\$820=\$1432

\$1432=\$1432

a sum of 20000 is invested, part at 10% and the remainder at 8%, find the amount invested at in each
rate if the yearly income to the two investments is 1840

x+y=20000 ------------------------1
10.00% x+8.00% y = \$1,840.00

Multiply by 100

## Multiply (1) by -10

we get

-10x-10 y=-200000.00

-2y=-\$16,000.00

divide by -2

## Balance\$12,000.00 investment at 10.00%

a total of \$12000 is invested in two stocks of, one of which returns 8% per year and the other 12% per
year. How much has been invested in each stock if the income from the 8% stock is 3\$ more than the
income from the 12% stock?

## total investment 12000

Interest-----= 8.00% x
Interest-----= 12.00% y

greater by 5

8.00% x = 12.00% y + 5

multiply by 100

## 8 x - -12 y = 500 --------1

x + y = 12000 -------- 2

eliminate y

Multiply 1 by 1

Multiply 2 by -12

we get

8 x +12 y = 500

-4 x= -143500

/ -4

x= 35875

## -12 y = 500 -287000

-12 y = -286500

/ -12

y= 23875

\$ 35875 at 8.00%

\$ 23875 at 12.00%
