# Thread: Investment in accounts

1. ## Investment in accounts

Franny invested in two accounts. The first account had a gain of 3% for the year. Unfortunately, Franny invested 10,000 more in the second account that lost 4% on the year. If Franny showed a loss of $454 for the two accounts, how much did she invest in each account? I need some help setting it up any ideas? 2. Hello, BWADE09! Franny invested in two accounts. The first account$\displaystyle (A)$had a gain of 3% for the year. She invested 10,000 more in the second account$\displaystyle (B)$that lost 4% for the year. If Franny showed a loss of$454 for the two accounts,
how much did she invest in each account?

Let $\displaystyle x$ = amunt invested in account $\displaystyle A.$
Let $\displaystyle x + 10,000$ amount invested in account $\displaystyle B.$

She gained: .$\displaystyle 0.03x$ dollars in account $\displaystyle A.$.

She lost: .$\displaystyle 0.04(x +10,000)$ dollars in account $\displaystyle B.$

Together, she had a net loss of $454: . . . .$\displaystyle 0.03x - 0.04(x+10,000) \;=\;-454\$

I assume you can finish it . . .
