Let the amount of money invested by the lottery winner in the utility bonds be x.
Then amount of money invested in savings account= (1,880,000-x).
Yearly income from utility bonds=`13/100*x=(13x)/100`
Yearly income from savings account=`6/100*(1,880,000-x)`
According to the given condition:
Therefore, amount of money invested by the lottery winner in the utility bonds =$352,500.
Amount of money invested in savings account= $(1,880,000-x)
