Why is my cycle wrong? The answer doesn't match if I use this cycle.
Thanks for any help in advance!

I can't make head or tail out of your "cycle".

The question is much easier than this. Simply construct the equation you need by manipulating the equations given.

Multiply equation 2 by 3
Reverse equation 1

So I get:
3C + 3/2 O2 ---> 3CO2 enthalpy change: -110*3
Fe2O3 ----> 2Fe + 3/2O2 enthalpy change: +882
3C + Fe2O3 + 3/2 O2 ----> 3CO2 + 2Fe + 3/2 O2
or, 3C + Fe2O3----> 3CO2 + 2Fe enthalphy change: -330+882=+552
Where did I go wrong here?

pressing the buttons on the calculator ...

-330 + 822 = +492

Whoops, sorry, thanks!
