The account balance at the start of the year was \$6700. The account earned \$619. She had 3 investments: Bond fund(5% return), balance fund(8% return), and aggressive fund(12% return). She had \$300 fewer than she did in balance and bond combined. How much did she have invested in the aggressive fund? : Three funds: a = bond (5%) b = balance (8%) c = aggressive (12%) : Total invested equation: a + b + c = 6700 : "Aggressive had \$300 fewer than she did in balance and bond combined." c + 300 = a + b : Looking at these two equation, we can replace a + b with (c+300) c + 300 + c = 6700 2c = 6700 - 300 2c = 6400 c = c = \$3200 in the Aggressive fund
