Question is:

Jack has $18000 to invest , he invests 2/3 in one account and the rest in the second account. The first account returned 2% more than the second account. The total return on his investment was $1050. What were the % rates of the two accounts.

Not sure if I'm doing it right cause I keep coming up with all sorts of answers that don't multiply to the end.

---------------------------------------

|P| |R| |I|

---------------------------------------

1st 12000 x (240+x)

---------------------------------------

2nd 18000-12000=6000 x

---------------------------------------

T= 18000 Interest saved 1050

---------------------------------------

18000* 2/3 = 12000

18000-12000= 6000

12000*.02 = 240

1050 -240 = 810

810:2 = 405

Did I set this up right? cause I keep coming up with 66.6 for x at 6000 and 33.3 for 12000

18000-6000 %

---------- = -------

18000 100

What am I doing wrong? just doesn't look right. Thank you for the help. This is just a 5 point extra credit for class. And, I already spent 2 days on this and I'm getting frustrated. When I go to times it all to see if it adds up it doesn't. Have to be missing something.
