Jenny receives $1,270 per year from three different investments totaling $20,000. One of the investments pays 6%, the second one pays 8%, and the third one pays 5%. If the money invested at 8% is $1,500 less than the amount invested at 5%, how much money has jenny invested in the investment that pays 6%?
