1. Use the formula for simple interest to find the amount of each investment after time $t$:

A_1 = 1080000$1 + 0.10t$

A_2 = 1300000$1 + 0.005 \times 12t$

2. Set the amounts of the two investments equal to each other:

1080000$1 + 0.10t$ = 1300000$1 + 0.005 \times 12t$

3. Simplify and solve for $t$:

1080000 + 1080000 \times 0.10 t = 1300000 + 1300000 \times 0.005 \times 12 t

1080000 + 108000 \, t = 1300000 + 78000 \, t

108000\,t-78000\,t=1300000-1080000

30000\,t=220000

t=\frac{220000}{30000}=\frac{22}{3}\approx7\text{ years and 4 months}

Answer: 7 years and 4 months
