  • $10,250 Divide 12,250 by 2 and got 6,125. Multiply 6,125 by 2 and get at your starting amount of 12, 250 and subtract 2,000 gets your answer of 10,250.

  • 7500

    I found how much was in the mutual account first with this formula: x2000=12250 .... x=4750 in mutual
    4750 x 2=9500-2000 = 7500

  • x + 2x -2000=12250 ***
