Formulate but do not solve the problem.

Michael Perez has a total of \$1802 on deposit with two savings institutions. One (x) pays interest at a rate of 6% per year, whereas the other (y) pays interest at a rate of 8% per year. If Michael earned a total of \$117 in interest during a single year, how much does he have on deposit in each institution?
= 117
= 1802

• math -

\$X in acc. 1.
\$Y in acc. 2.

Eq1: 0.06X + 0.08Y = 117.
Eq2: X + Y = 1802.
Multiply Eq1 by 100 and Eq2 by -6 and get:

6X + 8Y = 11700
-6X - 6Y = -10812
2Y = 888
Y = \$444 in acc. 2.

X + 444 = 1802
X = 1802 - 444 = \$1358 in acc. 1.
