2.)Arman has 1160 annual income from bonds bearing 3% and 5 % interest. then he added 25% more of the 3% bonds and 40% more of the 5 % bonds, thereby increasing his annual income by 410. find his initial investment in each type of bond

thank YOU so much

picture area = 8x12 = 96

If the frame has width w, then the total framed area is

(8+2w)(12+2w) = 96+96

now just solve for w and get the new dimensions

If the 3%=x and the 5% = y, then

.03x + .05y = 1160

.02(1.25x) + .05(1.40y) = 1160+410

now just solve for x and y.
