Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

let the number of 3 stocks are x,yz respectively, then we have 

x+y+z = 200, 

16x+56y+80z = 11600

0.07*16x+0.02*56y+0.02*80z = 272

simplify the equations

x+y+z = 200

x+3.5 y+5z = 725

1.12 x+1.12y+1.6z = 272 or x+y +  10/7 z  = 1700/7

x=y=50, z= 100

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
