Can you show work por favor? :) A metalworker has a metal alloy that is 20% copper and another alloy that is 60% copper. How many kilograms of each alloy should be combined to create 80 kg of a 53% copper alloy?

Ok, so you have x as the kg. The equation should look like this: .20(x) + .60(80-x) = .53(80) Then you can multiply everything out to solve for x.

What is the factor (x to the third power + 4x to the second power)(2x+8)?
