Which conversion factor do you use first to calculate the number of grams of CO2 produced by the reaction of 50.6 g of CH4 with O2? The equation for the complete combustion of methane is: CH4(g) + 2O2(g) > CO2(g) +2H2O(1)
1 mol CH4/16.0 g CH4
2 mol O2/1 mol CO2
16.0 g CH4/1 mol CO4
44.0 g CO2/2 mol CO2

you go like this grams to mole, to mole to grams. So you'll use the first one... that's because you have grams of methane whereas you want the grams of CO2. Oxygen has nothing to do in this equation. It's irrelevant to this question in fact.
