Sakshi invests a part of Rs. 12,000 in 12% stock at Rs. 120 and the remainder in 15% stock at Rs. 125. If his total dividend per annum is Rs. 1360, how much does he invest in 12% stock at Rs. 120?

Then, investment in 15% stock = Rs. (12000 - x).

12 x x + 15 x (12000 - x) = 1360.
120 125

x + 3 (12000 - x) = 1360.
10 25

5x + 72000 - 6x = 1360 x 50

x = 4000.
