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.
    Add the Eqs:
    -3X = -9000.
    X = $3000 Invested in a CD.
