Kevin earned \$165 interest for 1 year on an investment of \$1500. At the same rate, what amount of interest would be earned by an investment of \$2500?

At the same rate of interest, and period, the interest earned will be proprtional to the original principle. Therefore, you can multiply \$165 by 2500/1500 (or 5/3) to get the answer.
