Step 1

Given that the total investment amount is \$24,000, expected return on stock X is 13% and expected return on stock Y is 12%, expected portfolio return is 12.65%, we need to determine the amounts we need to invest in Stock X and Stock Y.

Step 2

To determine the investment amounts, first we need to determine the weights of individual stocks in the portfolio.
Suppose the weight of stock X be X, then the weight of stock Y will be (1-X)
