    so you had a total mass of the hydrate (MgSO4 . X H20) of 3.38 g then you heated it (removed all the water) and had left (MgSO4) 1.65 g what is the mass that evaporated? 3.38 g-1.65 g= mass of water convert both of the values, MgSO4 1.65 g and the mass of the water, to moles and see in what proportion they are in
