If x is invested at 6%, then $$\displaystyle{8900}−{x}$$ is invested at 10%.
The interest earned in one year is $674 so we can write: $$\displaystyle{0.06}{x}+{0.10}{\left({8900}−{x}\right)}={674}$$ Solve for x: $$\displaystyle{0.06}{x}+{890}−{0.10}{x}={674}$$ $$\displaystyle−{0.04}{x}+{89}={674}$$ $$\displaystyle−{0.04}{x}=−{216}$$ $$\displaystyle{x}={5400}$$ So, $$\displaystyle{8900}−{5400}=\{3500}$$ was invested at 10%. ### Relevant Questions asked 2021-06-08 part of$10,000 is invested at 11% simple interest account, the rest is at 14% simple interest account.
