Answer:

#"%aluminium by mass"# #=# #"Molar mass of aluminum"/"Molar mass of alumina"xx100%..# #"Approx 27%....."#

Explanation:

So in a molar quantity of aluminum, there is a percentage metal content of,

#(26.98*g*mol^-1)/(101.96*g*mol^-1)xx100%=??#

And in this mass of alumina there are approx. #6.6*g# of metal.
