**Henry**, Thursday, October 7, 2010 at 8:27pmInvestments:

x dollars @ 13%,

y dollars @ 3%,

x + y = 60000,

0.13x + 0.03y = 6000,

Multiply the 1st Eq by -0.13:

-0.13x - 0.13y = -7800,

0.13x + 0.03y = 6000,

Add the 2 Eqs:

-0.1y = -1800,

y = 18000,

Substitute 18000 for y in the 1st Eq:

x + 18000 = 60000,

x = 60000 - 18000 = 42000.

She invested:

$42000 @ 13%,

$18000 @ 3%.
