Emma is saving money for college. She has $800 and wants to deposit it into 2 different savings accounts. She decides to deposit $500.00 into an account, Account I, which earns 2.5% annual simple interest. She will then deposit $300 into an account, Account II, which earns 2 1/4% interest compounded annually.
