Samantha lent her brother some money at 9% simple interest and her sister one-half as much money at 16% interest. If she received a total of 34 cents in interest, then how much did she lend to each one?

• math -

\$X @ 9% = Her bro. loan.
\$X/2 @ 16% = Her sis. loan.

0.09x + 0.16(x/2) = 0.34
0.17x = 0.34
X = 0.34 / 0.17 = \$2.00.
X/2 = 2.00 / 2 = \$1.00.
