A mother wants to invest \$9,000.00 for her son’s future education. She invents a portion of the money in a bank certificate of deposit (Cd account) which earns 4% and the remainder in a saving bond that earns 7%. If the total interest earned after one year is \$540.00, how much money was invested in the CD account?

• math -

\$X-Invested in CD.
\$Y-Invested in bonds.

Eq1: 0.04X + 0.07Y = \$540.
Eq2: X + Y = \$9000.
Multiply Eq1 by 100 and Eq2 by -7:

4X + 7Y = 54000.
-7X -7Y = -63000.
-3X = -9000.
X = \$3000 Invested in a CD.
