Algebra word problem help needed

The simple interest earned by a certain amount of money varies jointly as the
rate of interest and the time (in years) that the money is invested. If $140 is
earned for the money invested at 7% for 5 years, how much is earned if the same
amount is invested at 8% for 3 years?
Thanks so much for your help!
