Let the original amount invested be x.

Hence, the amount with him after recieving the dividend is 1.3x.

Now, this amount was reinvested in ratio 6:7 in debt and equity funds. Amount invested in equity fund was 94,500

Hence, (0.7x/1.3)=94,500, x=175500

now, the original amount invested in equity was (5/9)*175500=97,500
