Would you not have to know the amount to be invested first?

Investing in 50% of the 8.5%, 20% of the 9.2 and 30% of the 3.1 would give you a 6.82% projected return....is that what you're after?

Mostly I'm trying to figure out how you came up with that answer, and how I can come up with other answers.

Unless this is multiple choice or there are at least three more constraints (equations), I'm pretty sure there is more than one solution to this problem. As it is, this is all we have to work with:

A(1.085)+B(1.092)+C(1.031)+D(1.048)=1.065

That's right, there are infinite number of solutions. I want to put together at least 5 options.

Okay, then go to this website and go wild filling in the letters in the equation I included.
