A) 12.3g, B) 32.5g, C) 37.8g, D) 43.9g

So this is how I did it on the test but got it marked wrong.

I reasoned take 1/.86=1.16 then 1.16(102g)=119g is the actual weight of the bauxite ore.

Then with the Al 2(27)x=20 x=.37 so that means you're going to need 37% of 1 119g of bauxite ore. The answer gave 44.0g.

--------------

He showed to do it 2(27)/(2*27)+3(16))= .79

.79(.86)x=20g x=29.4g was the correct answer for the test.

Now it showed up on review for the final but his answer is not on the multiple choice. Is the solution I did incorrect?
