Answer:invested in ABC = $3200Step-by-step explanation:given data

total invest = $10,100

Stock ABC costs = $32 per share

dividends = $1.20 per share

Stock XYZ costs = $23 per share

dividends = $1.40 per share

earn a total dividends = $540

solution

we can say total money invest express as

total money invested = 32 × P + 23 × Q

here person buys stocks of ABC is P and buys stocks of stocks of XYZ is Q

$10,100 = 32 × P + 23 × Q

we can also write this as by multiply 3 both side

$30,300 = 96 × P + 69 × Q ………………….1

and total dividends will be

total dividends = 1.2 × P +1.4 × Q

$540 = 1.2 × P +1.4 × Q

we can also write this as by multiply 80 both side

$43200 = 96 × P + 112 × Q ………………..2

so from equation 1 and 2 , subtracting 1 from 2

we get

Q = 300

and P = 100

so that we invest 100 × 32

invested in ABC = $3200
