Income from $ 4000 at 5 % in one year = $ 4000 of 5 %.

= $ 4000 × 5/100.

= $ 4000 × 0.05.

= $ 200.

Income from $ 3500 at 4 % in one year = $ 3500 of 4 %.

= $ 3500 × 4/100.

= $ 3500 × 0.04.

= $ 140.

Total income from 4000 at 5 % and 3500 at 4 % = $ 200 + $ 140 = $ 340.

Remaining income amount in order to have a yearly income of $ 500 = $ 500 - $ 340.

= $ 160.

Total invested amount = $ 4000 + $ 3500 = $7500.

Remaining invest amount = $ 10000 - $ 7500 = $ 2500.

We know that, Interest = Principal × Rate × Time

Interest = $ 160,

Principal = $ 2500, 

Rate = r [we need to find the value of r],

Time = 1 year.

160 = 2500 × r × 1.

160 = 2500r

160/2500 = 2500r/2500 [divide both sides by 2500]

0.064 = r

r = 0.064

Change it to a percent by moving the decimal to the right two places r = 6.4 %

Therefore, he invested the remaining amount $ 2500 at 6.4 % in order to get $ 500 income every year.
