.08 x + .17 (5,000 -x) = 490
assuming simple interest not compounded monthly or daily or anything.

If x was invested at 8%, 5000-x was invested at 17%.

Solve the equation
490 = 0.08x + 0.17 (5000 -x)
490 - 850 = -0.09 x
0.09x = 360
x = ?
It says that the total interest earned in two accounts, was \$490.
