Work Step by Step

Sb-121= 120.90 amu, 57.21%; Sb-123= 122.90 amu, 42.79% Formula: (Mass of isotope 1 x %abundance/100%)+(Mass of isotope 2 x %abundance/100%) $(120.90 amu\times0.5721)+(122.90 amu\times0.4279)$= 121.7558 amu Rounded to four significant figures = 121.8 amu, which checks out against the Periodic Table for Antimony (Sb).
