There are 3600 seats in section A, 7200 in section B, and 8400 lawn seats. Check Substitute the values into either of the first two equations. Guided Practice j 5. Ms. Garza invested $50,000 in three different , , , accounts. She invested three times as much money in an account that paid 8% interest than an u..orrlt that paid 107o interest. The third account earned 12% interest. If she earned a total of $5160 in interest in a year, how much did she invest in each account? b 17O Chapter 3 Systems of Equations and lnequalities Personal Tutor slencoe.com
