    Answer:

    The total weight of the metal bar in pounds is 25 pounds

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Now, we have a metal bar which has a content of 60% zinc corresponding to 15 pounds.

    Mathematically, let’s say the total weight of the metal composite is x pounds. It is 60% of this that is 15 pounds which is the content of the zinc

    Mathematically;

    60/100 * x = 15

    60x = 15 * 100

    60x = 1500

    x = 1500/60

    x = 25 pounds
