if $9,000 is to be invested, part at 13% and the rest at 8% simple interest , how much should be invested at each rate so that the total annual return will be the same as $9,000 invested at 9% set up as a system of linear equation

  • math - ,

    It's a linear partition problem, since both investments are paid simple interest.
    Amount invested at 8%
    Amount invested at 13%

    Alternatively, using algebra,
    Let x=amount invested at 8%,
    Then (9000-x)=amount invested at 13%
    and the interest obtained should be the same as $9000 invested at 9%:
    Isolate x,
    x=9000*(13-9)/(13-8)=7200 as before.
