**Reiny**, Monday, November 1, 2010 at 6:44pmfirst one:

let the amount invested at 9% be x

let the amount invested at 10% be 15000-x

.09x + .10(15000-x) = 1432

multiply each term by 100

9x + 10(15000-x) = 143200

-x = -6800

x = 6800

so $6800 were invested at 9% and $8200 at 10%

do the second question the same way.
