    Can you help me with this one:
    Stan invested $13,000, part at 17% and part at 2%. If the total interest at the end of the year is $1,910, how much did he invest at 17%?

  • math - ,

    Let Y = amount invested at 17%.
    Then 13,000 - Y = amount invested at 2%.

    Y + (13,000 - Y)*0.02 = 1910.
    Solve for Y.
