The alloy is composed of tin and antimony. The mass of antimony in this alloy is three seventeenths of the mass of tin. Find the mass of the alloy if it contains 27.2 kg of tin
1. Let us find the mass of antimony in the alloy, if it is known that its mass is equal to 3/17 of the mass of tin:
27.2 g * 3/17 = 4.8 grams.
2. We add the mass of antimony and tin, we get the mass of the alloy:
4.8 g + 27.2 g = 32 grams.
Answer: The mass of the tin and antimony alloy is 32 grams.
