    Answer:

    Total given= $18,750

    Invested in stocks and bonds.

    Stocks=X

    Bonds= 1/4X

    Equation

    X+1/4X=18,758

    5X=75,000

    X=75,000/5

    X=15,000

    Therefore…. Stock is equal to $15,000

    Bonds is equal to 1/4 × 15,000.

    Bond= $3,750.

    To verify my answer

    Stock + Bond= 18,750

    15,000+3750=$18,750
