**Reiny**, Tuesday, September 3, 2013 at 10:08pmsmaller rate --- x

larger rate ----- x + .03

1200x + 2200(x+.03) = 253

1200x + 2200x + 66 = 253

3400x = 187

x = .055

lower rate is 5.5% higher rate is 8.5%

check:

return on 1200 = .055(1200) = 66

return on 2200 = .085(2200) = 187

which is $121 more

You actually had more information than was needed to solve the problem
