What have you done so far?
Honestly nothing because I have no idea what I'm doing....
First you calculate the moles of C present in CO2 and the moles of H in H2O

CO2 = 3.9991365500592mol H2O = 7.993214648899199mol Are those right?
Would I round them?
Did you do 176 x 10-12 g x 1 mol CO2/44 g
I came out to 39.7272...
Wait-- I think I know what I'm doing now, but thank you!
Ok, in this problem you need to round it to 2 sig figs because you have the number 16 in the problem.
