    Sapling?? ... LoL, Okay. Take 5093.7 KJ = [Delta Hformation of Co2(g) x's however many moles the problem gave you of Co2 + Delta H formation of H2O(g)] - [Delta Hformation of C8H18(g) +Delta Hformation of O2(g)] Then you just work out the math and manipulate Delta Hformation of C8H18 to one side by itself.

    I actually think it should be -5093. lol ... sorry. but still work it the same way :)
