We have the following percent abundance for each of the isotopes.
The following diagram
is a representation of 20 atoms of a fictitious element, which we will call nevadium (Nv). The red spheres are 293Nv, and the blue spheres are 295Nv.
Assuming that this sample is a statistically representative sample of the element, calculate the percent abundance of each element.
