How do I write the equation?
Helen Weller invested $10,000 in an account that pays 10% simple interest. How much additional moneymust be invested in an account that pays 13% simple interest so that the average return on the two investments amounts to 11%? I know the answer is$5,000.00 but I am unsure how to set up the problem to show that solution. Could you help me? Unknown008 Posts: 8,076, Reputation: 723 Uber Member #2 May 21, 2009, 08:07 AM

Ok, let's first give the amount a name, say 'x'

(13&#37; of x) + (10% of 10000) gives (11% of x + 10000) where x+10000 is the total sum.

So, in numbers;

When you simply, solve for x and you're done. Post back if you have any difficulties.

Hope it helped! :) Perito Posts: 3,139, Reputation: 150 Ultra Member #3 May 21, 2009, 08:09 AM

$10000 x 0.10 =$1000 is the annual interest at 10% on $10,000 Let A be the amount that's invested at 13% The amount earning interest at 10% plus the amount that's invested at 13% equals the two amounts as if they had been invested at 11%. This is the equation that results. ($10000 x 0.10) + (A x 0.13) = (\$10000 + A) x 0.11

We need to solve for A and check that it's correct by substituting back into the equation.

I see that Unknown008 beat me to the punch.
