Ms. Fernandez invested $50,000 of her lottery winnings into two different mutual funds. At the end of one year, both funds together were worth $53,550. One of the funds had produced a return of 8% while the second fund had produced a return of 6.5%. How much money was invested in each fund? Homework Help ✎

Construct a system of equations.

*A* + *B* = 50000*A*(1.08)^{1} + *B*(1.065)^{1} = 53550

$20,000 was invested in the 8% fund and $30,000 was invested in the 6.5% fund.
