    I'm having trouble understanding how they get the answer in (iii). In the markscheme it simply says to do 10 x (ii). I don't understand why they do this, or the method behind it. Any help will be greatly appreciated

      If you read the bit at the start of the question, it says that they make up a solution of 250 cm3 using 3.44g of the Metal Carbonate. However, in the neutralisation reaction only 25cm3 is used, a tenth of the original solution. As such, the number of moles in the 25cm3 will be a tenth of the moles in the original solution, so you have to multiply your answer in part (ii) by ten to find the moles in the 3.44 g sample.
