    Let x be the amount invested in the 15% account. Then 50,000 - x is the amount invested in the 7% account. Total interest from both accounts is .15x + .07(50,000 - x) = 6,000 .08x + 3,500 = 6,000 .08x =2,500 x = 31,250 50,000 - x = 18,750. Nancy should invest %31,250 in the 15% account and $18,750 in the 7% account.
