#### Answer:

The money invested at

#### Explanation:

We call the quantity invested at

Than we have that $$X+Y=8000$$ and also $$X\times 3/100+Y\times4/100=295.$$

We are interested in

$$X\times 3/100+(8000-X)\times4/100=295$$

and we solve for

$$3X-4X+32000=29500$$

$$-X=29500-32000$$

$$X=2500.$$
