How can Wolfram Alpha recognize chemical formulas with decimals?

Using Wolfram Alpha as a way to find stoichiometric ratios, I put in "10g of FeTe" and get back exactly what I want: Fe (iron) | 3.044 g (30.4%) Te (tellurium) | 6.956 g (69.6%).

Now I am interested in the compound Fe(1.05)Te. What input syntax is necessary for Wolfram Alpha to recognize this as a chemical formula like the example above?
