I got this question wrong on my test and I would like to know how to solve it: Potassium (k) has an atomic mass of 39.0983 amu and only two naturally occurring isotopes. The K-41 isotope (40.9618 amu

if 1 is 6.7302%=0.067302 2nd is 100%-6.7302%=93,2698% =0.932698 (I am not going to count sig. figs.) 0.067302*40.9618+0.932698x=39.0983. Solve for X. X=38.9630423 amu
