An investor has $300,000 to invest in two types of investments. Type A pays 4% annually and type B pays 5% annually. To have a wellbalanced portfolio, the investor imposes the following conditions. At least onethird of the total portfolio is to be allocated to type A investments and at least onethird of the portfolio is to be allocated to type B investments. What is the optimal amount that should be invested in each investment?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you would want to have as much as possible in type B because it pays more. The most you could have is $200,000 due to the condition. So it is $100,000 to type A and $200,000 to type B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because I have another problem: An investor has $600,000 to invest in two types of investments. Type A pays 7% annually and type B pays 9% annually. To have a wellbalanced portfolio, the investor imposes the following conditions. At least onethird of the total portfolio is to be allocated to type A investments and at least onethird of the portfolio is to be allocated to type B investments. What is the optimal amount that should be invested in each investment? I am assuming then it is the same scenario so my choices would either be: a.$200,000 in type A (7%), $400,000 in type B (9%) b.$210,000 in type A (7%), $390,000 in type B (9%)
