    It depends on what values you have been given, i.e. enthalpy change of formation or combustion.

Size:  97.1 KBIf you add all of the values for a specific reaction pathway/arrow, remembering to multiply enthalpy by the number of moles in the equation for each molecule (e.g. if there was 2H2O in the equation and the enthalpy change of formation was -286kJmol-1, then you would do -286x2 = -572kJ).
