  1. first one:
    let the amount invested at 9% be x
    let the amount invested at 10% be 15000-x

    .09x + .10(15000-x) = 1432
    multiply each term by 100
    9x + 10(15000-x) = 143200
    -x = -6800
    x = 6800

    so $6800 were invested at 9% and $8200 at 10%

    do the second question the same way.
