**drwls**, Friday, January 20, 2012 at 6:48amThis problem requires writing and solving two "simultaneous" equations in two unknowns.

Let the two amounts invested by x (at 5%) and y (at 3%). Assume simple interest at that annual rate.

0.05 x + 0.03 y = 28.0

x + y = 706.

==========================

Now solve those two equations.

0.05x + 0.05y = 35.30

0.02 y = 7.30

y = $365.00

x = 706 - 365 = $341.00
