Let the additional invested amount for 8% interest be x;

Equation will be;
2400+0.05*2400+x+0.08x = 2400+x+0.06(2400+x)
0.05*2400+0.08x = 0.06x+0.06*2400
0.02x = 2400(0.06-0.05)
x = 2400*0.01/0.02 = 1200

Ans: "A"

in short the question is asking wht additional amnt shud be added so tht the individual interest rates match up 6% of the total.

(x+2400)*6=2400*5+8x.
on solving, x=1200.
option A

120 + 8/100 * x = 6/100 * (x+2400)

=> (8-6)x/100 = 144 - 120

=> x = 2400/2 = 1200

Using options,
5% of 2400 = 120

Option A - 8% of 1200= 96 ,
120+96=216
6%(2400+1200)=216
Thus option A
