| A sum of Rs. 1550 is lent out into two parts, one at 8% and another at 6%. If the total interest is Rs 106, then find the money lent at 6% rate?

A. Rs 900

B. Rs 200

C. Rs 300

D. Rs 400

### Right Answer is: A

#### SOLUTION

Let the sum lent at 8% be Rs x and that at 6% be Rs (1550 – x) .

∴

⇒ 8x + 9300 – 6x = 10600

2x = 1300

x = 650

∴ money lent at 8% = Rs 650 .

Money lent at 6% = Rs (1550 – 650 ) = Rs 900
