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(80x) = .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)?
