A financier plans to invest up to $450,000 in two projects. Project A yields a return of 10% on the investment, whereas Project B yields a return of 15% on the investment. Because the investment in Project B is riskier than the investment in Project A, the financier has decided that the investment in Project B should not exceed 40% of the total investment. How much should she invest in each project to maximize the return on her investment?

Project A ______ $

Project B ______ $

What is the maximum return?

0.6 * 450,000 = 270,000 > A

270,000 * 0.1 = 27,000 return
