An investment of 6000 was made one year ago.

Part of the investment was placed into an account paying s interest at 8%

The remainder of the investment was placed into an account paying s interest at 6%

After one year, you received a total of 418 in interest. How much was invested in each account?

For Fund 1, we invest an unknown amount, let us call it x

For Fund 2, the remaining principal is 6000 - x

Since Fund 1 credits interest using the simple interest method, we have 0.08x

Since Fund 2 credits interest using the simple interest method, we have 0.06(6000 - x)

Interest Paid | Principal | Interest Rate | |

Fund 1 | 0.08x | x | 8% |

Fund 2 | 0.06(6000 - x) | (6000 - x) | 6% |

Total | 418 | 6000 | -- |

Since both Interest paid columns add up to the total interest earned of 418, we set up an equation

0.08x + 0.06(6000 - x) = 418

0.08x + 360 - 0.06x = 418

360 + 0.02x = 418

360 - 360 + 0.02x = 418 - 360

0.02x = 58

x = **2900** ← Fund 1 Investment

This means we should 6000 - 2900 = **3100** into Fund 2
