You invested $6000 in two savings, some at 7% (simple interest) and the rest at 8.5%. The total amount of interest from both accounts for one year was $398. How much was invested in each account?
Simple interest= PRT/100, honey in a bit...
|dw:1336623392948:dw| hope the hint is enough
but after i do that i get a negative
figured that out, i wonder if the 7% is simple interest?? Can it be compound?
no the 7% is simple interest
the 8.5% does not mention if it is simple or compounded so i guess it can be either
lemme try it as compound, u should too so we compare notes :-)
I get a negative of 1,466.6667 as principal amount p1
me too haha but how could you invest negative 1,466?
you tell me :-) what do you think, could we be wrong, highly doubt that
no idea maybe it was written poorly ? im goign to go with that and find out from my teacher tomorrow .. thank you so much im happy to know you agree now i could move on.. !
