Identify unknown (x).

james invested "some money" (x) at 15% interest =.15x

james also invested $229 more (add 229) than 4 times (multiply by 4) that amount(x) at 6%= .06(4x+229)

total interest from both accounts after 1 year=1452.84

.06(4x+229)+.15x=1452.84

solve for x to find amount invested at 15%

Plug in value of x to find amount invested at 6% = 4x+229
