If the total interest brom both accounts at the end of the year is \$370, how much is invested in each account?Answer by Earlsdon(6287)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x = the amount invested at 4% and x+\$2000 = the amount invested at 5%. The interest earned on these two amounts (\$370) can be expressed by: Simplify. Combine the x-terms. Subtract 100 from both sides. Divide both sides by 0.09 and \$2,000 was invested at 4% and \$5,000 was invested at 5%.
