To solve this, you just have to multiply the percentage with the number.

3. iwillrektyou

I can show and guide you through the first, and then the second, to make sure you understand it.

4. iwillrektyou

$0.1 \times 25000 = 2500$

5. iwillrektyou

So, she has invested $2,500 in the stock when she had$25,000

6. iwillrektyou

Do you think you can do the second?

7. anonymous

Right

8. campbell_st

do it this way... let x be the investment at 10% profit and then (25000 - x) is the investment at 5% loss and you know the overall result is $700 so 700 = 0.1x - 0.05(25000 - x) collect like terms and solve for x 9. anonymous x=13000 10. campbell_st correct so the investment that made 10% was$13000 leaving $12000 with a loss of 5% 10% of$13000 = $1300 5$ of $12000 =$600 so 1300 - 600 = \$700
