    I'm getting a little confused rounding up molar ratio...

    Molar ratio
    C : H : O
    2.1 : 5.8 : 1
    2 or 3? : 6 : 1

    and another question...

    When do we multiply
    like eg.
    C : H
    0.1 : 0.2
    1 : 2 and not 1 : 1?

    Your lowest number is an integer so you must multiply the others by the smallest number that gives both as integers.... in this case by 10.

    BUT I suspect that your values have already been 'rounded'. What is the original question?
