User: man invests \$5,200, part at 4% and the balance at 3%. If his total income for the two investments is \$194, how much money did he invest at each rate?

Weegy: Interest = Investment * Rate X = amount invested at 4% \$5,200 - X = amount invested at 3% 194 = 0.04X + 0.03(5,200 - X) 194 = 0.04X + 156 - 0.03X 38 = 0.01X X = 3800 Answer: \$3,800 is invested at 4% and \$1200 is invested at 3% Check: \$3,800 * 4% = [ \$152 \$1,200 * 3% = \$36 \$152 + \$36 = \$192 ]
