Nico is saving money for his college education. He invest some money at 8%, and $1300 less than that amount at 5%. the investments produced a total of $234 intrest in 1 yr.How much did he invest at each rate?

please please help 
sam,
.08(x)+.05(x1300)=234 solve for x
.08x+.05x65=234
x=2300
to check your answer
.08(2300)=184
.05(23001300)=50
184+50=234 
please please help
