average atomic mass of magnesium is 24.31 amu. this magnesium is composed of 79 mole % of ^24 Mg and remaining 21mole % of ^25 Mg. calculate mole % of ^26Mg.

    Something is askew here. If you have 79% of one isotope and 21% of the other, that adds to 100% so there is no room for any other isotope.
