 Question 252427: Can someone please help. I cannot figure out the correct formula. Using a Linear System to Solve an Application. Jane Hooker invests \$40,000 received in an inheritance in three parts. With one part she buys mutual funds that offer a return of 2% per year. The second part, which amounts to twice the first, is used to buy government bonds paying 2.5% a year. She puts the rest of the money into a savings account that pays 1.25% annual interest. During the first year, the total interest is \$825.00. How much did she invest at each rate? Answer: (\$10,0000 at 2%; \$20,000 at 2.5%; and \$10,000 at 1.25%) Click here to see answer by Theo(3464)

 Question 252428: Can someone please help. I cannot figure out the correct formula. Using a Nonlinear System. Modeling Circuit Gain. In electronics, cicuit gain is modeled by G = Bt/R + rt, where “R” is the value of a resister, “t” is temperature, Rt is the value of R at temperature “t”, and B is a constant. The sensitivity of the circuit to temperature is modeled by S = BR/(R + Rt)^2. If B = 3.7 and "t" is 90K (Kelvin), find the values of R and Rt that will make G = .4 and S = .001.
