    \[P _{total } = P _{Ne}+P _{He}+P _{Ar}\] Since we know the partial pressures of Helium and neum plus the total pressure we can find the partial pressure of Argon right? \[P _{Ar} = P _{total }- (P _{He }+ P _{Ne})\] So u find it. We know: \[P _{Ar} = X _{Ar} * P _{total}\]In this equation we know the total pressure and the partial pressure of Argon so we can easily find the mole fraction. \[X _{Ar} = \frac{ P _{Ar} }{ P _{total} }\]
