If I invested $1,000,000 some of it at 3.5% and some at 4.5% and the interest return was $39,000. How much did I invest at each rate?

.08x+.09y = 39,000

X+Y = 1,000,000

Oh, wonderful, Adriann..."Confusing them with difficult (often unnessary) math skills?" You don't teach students the proper concepts...just let them guess until they find the right number? Using your ridiculous method, how many guesses do you think it might take if the interest total happened to be $39,243.62?
