Mr Tan invested 35,000 and Mrs Tan invested 45,000

The equation to solve this is given by:

mr Tan's money x

Mrs Tan's money x + 10000

x times .05 + (x + 10000) times .05 = 4000

solve for x

### I am a fresher earning 25k per month. I want to invest 20000 rs every month. Apart from fixed deposits and gold investments, how can I productively invest and yield the greatest amount of money in the...

Fixed deposits are one of the most safe and secure ways of investing. Besides it there is one more option which you must explore, and i.e., Public Provident Fund. PPF has a lot of edge over most other types of investments not only it provides a high rate of interest of around 8%, but also it can help you enjoy tax exemptions.
Before you invested in PPF you also must some money out for your expenses and insurance coverage. After you have sidelined some money for your other expenses and investments you can keep investing in PPF for a period of 15 years and you can extend the period by 5 more years. The current limit to PPF is Rs. 1,50,000/-. If after investing in it if you still have funds remaining to invest then you can invest in FDs and choose a return type of monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or annually.

### I have a starting amount of \$2,125. I invest some of it in a bank that pays 4% a year and some in another back that pays 5% a year. After one year I have earned \$100. How much money did I invest in ea

There are 2 values for interest, say R and r, and R = 0.05, r = 0.04

There are 2 values for the amount earned, from the 2 banks, say I and i, and we know I + i = 100

There are 2 values for principal invested, say P and p, and we know P + p = 2125

There is only one value for period, say t = 1

So then I = P * 0.05 * 1 and
i = p * 0.04 * 1 and
I + i = 100 and
P + p = 2125

then

0.05P + 0.04p = 100
P + p = 2125
P = 2125 - p
0.05 ( 2125 - p) +0.04p = 100
106.25 - 0.05p + 0.04p = 100
106.25 - 0.01p = 100
0.01p = 6.25
p = 625
so
P = 2125 - 625 = 1500

so the amounts were \$1500 and \$625

### An original investment of 10,000 earns 7.50% interest compound continously, What will the investment be worth in 3 years? 30 years?

A=P(1+i)^n, where P is the Principal, i is the interest rate per period, and n is the number of periods.

A=10,000(1+0.075)^3, assuming the interest is compounded annually

For 30 years, we would replace the number of period 3 with a 30.

Good luck,

Paul

### Pls i need equation for :- The sum of N1200 is invested in three project X,Y,Z at the ratio of 4,5,6 respectively. The expected cash inflow per annum is N700. the combined income for projects X and Y is...

Two ways to get to the same answer:
1) If X,Y, & Z are invested in the ratio of 4:5:6 then the amount invested in Z is 6/(4+5+6) times the total of N1200
= 6/15 * 1200
= N480
(Note: X is 4/15 and Y is 5/15 of the total investment,
4/15 + 5/15 + 6/15 = 15/15)
2) The second sentence says: Income from X plus income from Y minus income from Z is N140 and total income is N700. Total income is 700/1200 of the investment.
As formulas:
(Inc X + Inc Y) - Inc Z = 140 (rewriting: Inc X + Inc Y = 140 + Inc Z)
Inc X + Inc Y + Inc Z = 700
Substituting second formula into third:
(140 + Inc Z) + Inc Z = 700
140 + 2 Inc Z = 700
2Inc Z = 700 - 140 = 560
Inc Z = N280
Inc Z is also 700/1200 of investment in Z.
N280 = 700/1200 investment in Z
Investment in Z is 1200/700 * N280
Investment in Z is N480.
