    Ok so what you do is you will have figured out what the theoretical yield of a product would be. All those questions which go something like this: "What mass of X would react with 60 grams of Y?" are calculating theoretical yields. However in real life when the experiments the mass produced is rarely quite as much.
    Therefore to find out percentage yield, % yield = (experimental mass found divided by theoretical mass)*100
