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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, it seems like too easy of a question to ask. That has me worried. Are you sure there are no other details that you didn't share?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If those are all of the details to be had, then a higher percentage yield will always give you more money if they pay out over the same period. I'm not sure why you are being asked this question more than once.
