Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

69.723 = ( 70.9247050  * 39.892/100)  + (x * 0.60108)

69.723=( 70.9247050 * 0.39892 ) + 0.60108x

69.723 = 28.29328332 + 0.60108x

69.723 - 28.29328332 = 0.60108x

41.42970668 = 0.60108x



divide both sides by o.60108

The answer is X=  68.9254 amu
