Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let interest earned of 1st acc be I(1)=P(1)*R(1)*T Let interest earned of 2nd acc be I(2)=P(2)*R(2)*T where P(1)=x , P(2)=x+800 , R(1)=0.02, R(2)=0.04 I(1)+I(2)=92 0.02x+0.04(x+800)= 92 0.02x+0.04x+32=92 0.06x=60 x=1000=P(1)=amount invested in 1st acc P(2)=x+800=1000+800=1800 = amount invested in 2nd acc
