From Kenneth: Hello:
If an investor has $1000.00 to invest in multiple accounts, and he
wants a total return of 4%, is there one calculation that can be used
to determine what these amounts could be even though there may be
numerous amounts used as answers for most of the following examples?
For example,
Invest $1000.00 @ 2% and 5% for total return of 4%.
Invest $1000.00 @ 2%, 3% and 5% for total return of 4%.
Invest $1000.00 @ 2%, 3%, and 5% for total return of 4%.
Invest $1000.00 @ 2%, 3%, 4% and 5% for total return of 4%.
