A man invested a certain amount of money at 3% and twice as much at 9%, giving the annual income of 315. How much did he invest in each rate?

They show how to do this on this page.

Code: Select all

table:
      | amt | rate | total
--------------------------
  $   |  x  | 0.03 | 0.03x
twice | 2x  | 0.09 | 0.18x
total | 3x  |  NA  |  315
