1. I was doing some questions on isotopic abundance and there was an equation of:

(34.97)(x) + (36.97)(1-x) = 35.45

Can you please give the word equation for the above.
By word equation I mean what are you meant to put where, like the way this word equation is used to work out equations: percentage x multiplier = amount

It can be seen here on this website:
