The main concept here is to find the density of the material...ie. from a single unit cell. So for an FCC crystal how many atoms of X are in the unit cell? What are the dimensions of the unit cell? So now you know the density in terms of # of atoms/volume in a unit cell. The rest is unit conversions.
Does this help or do you need more?
