    You can express this problem with two equations. Let A be the investment yielding 10%, and B the investment yielding 4%. 1) A + B = 53500 The two investments total $53,500. 2) 10%*A + 4%*B = 4030. The annual income from the investment yielding 10% and the investment yielding 4% is $4030. Solve the system of equations for A and B to get the investment amounts.
