\$1,428,000 is the answer I came up with.
I divided the \$11,900 by 50 to determine how much was earned per day.  \$238.
I multiplied that by 360 to determine how much interest would be earned in one year.  \$85,680
I then divided that answer by .06 (6%) to find the principal amount invested. \$1,428,000.

Reversing the process:  \$1,428,000 X 6%  DIVIDED BY 360  X 50

I'm real sure this is the answer I came up with. Whether it is correct for the question or not, I'm not positive.
