You should be using the equation: Mass = Moles*Mr

The number of moles of 3O2 is 9 and the Mr is 96.
from there you can work out the maximum mass of 2Al2O3

The mass has nothing to do with it. The question does not ask for mass, it asks for amount.

Just use the stochiometric ratios to find the amount.

That would be correct! I'd be tempted just to leave the answer in moles (maybe that's a bit lazy but the question doesn't specify units)

Definitely leave the answer in moles, as the questions specifies amount.
