I have attached both info/questions from book and answers. I know the answers are correct and have attached them to make it easier for you, but I need to know how this exact solution in bold below (optimal combination 53% and 47%) was found from 98 possibilities so I can show my work or explain.

The optimal combination of Kalama and Adelphia is 53% and 47%, respectively. This results in a risky portfolio return of 18.74% and a standard deviation of 17.65%. As Andrea wants to earn a return of 19%, she will need to borrow money at the risk-free rate.  

Info from book: Andrea Corbridge is considering forming a portfolio consisting of Kalama Corp. and Adelphia
Technologies. The two corporations have a correlation of -0.1789, and their expected returns and
standard deviations are as follows:
Kalama
Corp. Adelphia Technologies Expected return (%) 14.86 23.11 Standard Deviation (%) 23.36 31.89 1. Calculate the frontier for all possible investment combinations of Kalama Corp.
and Adelphia Technologies (from 0% to 100%, in 1% increments). Determine the
optimal risky portfolio if the risk-free rate is 3%.
2. Andrea has $50,000 and wants to earn a 19% expected return on her investment.
What is the optimal manner in which to structure her portfolio-both in dollar
amounts and in weights relative to her $50,000-based on the preceding
information? Answers: #1

The optimal combination of Kalama and Adelphia is 53% and 47%, respectively. This results in a risky
portfolio return of 18.74% and a standard deviation of 17.65%. As Andrea wants to earn a return
of 19%, she will need to borrow money at the risk-free rate. 0.19 = (1- wm) .03 + wm .1874
wm = 101.65% Of the $50,000 Andrea has, she should place 101.65%, or $50,825.92 in the optimal portfolio of
Kalama and Adelphia. Thus, she needs to borrow $825.92 at the risk-free rate.
