I do not figure out any easy way for this one except solving it basically :

84 = A+B
32760 = 3%.(12000.A+18000.B)

Is it possible to eliminate whole numbers straight away? This leaves us with two options: 6 2/3% and 33 1/3%. Since the latter is way off the mark considering the figures at a first glance, I'd eliminate it as well.

This leaves us with only one option.
