the formula of the hydrate tells us that 1 unit of alum (the salt) will be surrounded by 12 water molecules. This ratio is constant, so a MOLE of alum will have 12 MOLES of water surrounding it. The molar masses of these pieces are easy to find. The % water is calculated by:\[\%H{_2}O = \frac{MM (H{_2}O)}{MM(hydrate)} * 100\%\] I get about 54.4% water
