    Thats what I got too.

    1. I worked out the molar mass of Na2S203 = 158.2
    2. Then using the molar mass of the whole compound (248.2) - I divided it by 12.41 and got: 0.05
    3. I multiplied 0.05 by 158.2 to get 7.91

    Somehow I think I'm wrong too ... Is that the correct answer?

    Sorry, I don't understand your question. An anhydrous compound is just a compound without water - so you remove the moles of the H2O (5 X 18 = 90)

    Looking back at my work, I've done that question before, and I am correct (teacher marked it)

    I mean the moles, 90 is the molar mass, why is the moles the same when anhydrous is less??

    The moles of the Na2S2O3 is the same, because it is not affected by the heat. Heating up the compound, removes the water but the salt is left behind - unaffected.
