Help with an investment matrix word problem!!

Can anyone give me the 3 equations in general form that I need to solve this matrix?

A person will put 30% of his investment into a stock fund that earns a 9% annual rate of return. He will put 20% in precious metals currently growing at 40% and the remainder into bond funds earning 3%. His goal is to have $4000 of interest income. How much should he put into each investment?

One of the equations should be the equation for the statement about interest.

I don't think this is a matrix kind of problem...it is a single equation:

(0.3xM)x(1.09) + (0.2xM)x(1.40) + (0.5xM)x(1.03) - M = 4000

M is the amount of money that needs to be invested to get 4000 of interest income

Do you really mean interest should be $4000, or total return? The reason I ask is that only the bonds return interest.
