Re-185: (0.3740)(x) = 0.3740x
Re-187: (0.6260)(371.9087 - x) = 232.8148462 - 0.6260x
0.3740x + 232.8148462 - 0.6260x = 186.207
0.3740x + 232.8148462 - 0.6260x - 232.8148462 = 186.207 -232.8148462
0.3740x - 0.6260x = -46.6078462
-0.2520x = -46.6078462
-0.2520x/-0.2520x = -46.6078462/-0.2520
x = 184.9517706 amu = 184.952
