174.16

If the bank gives 6% = 0.06, and the final result is 178.61, this means that 1.06 times what she has above 100 in the bank is equals to 78.61

X = what she has above 100

So 1,06X = 78.61
X = 74.16

She had 174.16 in the account.

PS.: If this is the right answer and you liked, consider a kudo. I am almost accessing the GMATClub tests!!!

0.06(P-100) + P = 178.61
=> P = 174.16
