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?

    figured that out, i wonder if the 7% is simple interest?? Can it be compound?

    the 8.5% does not mention if it is simple or compounded so i guess it can be either
