    Okay is 74.093 right?
    74 is precise enough.

    Now work out the relative formula mass of calcium phosphate. Post your answer.

    No. Look at the formula. There are 3 calcium, 2 phosphorus and 8 oxygen. Make sure you can see how this is the case and give a revised answer.

    Yes.

    Now use the equation below to work out the moles of calcium hydroxide you have in 5 g

    Moles X relative formula mass = mass

    Yes.

    Moles X relative formula mass = mass
    Is 370 g/mol correct

    You need to work out the moles. You have the mass and you have the relative formula mass from a few posts back. You need to rearrange the equation I have (hopefully) reminded you of.

    Try again.

    I cannot see where this number comes from.

    You have 5 g and correctly said that the relative formula mass was 74.

    Think again.

    I did 5g/mol × 74 = 370 is that right?

    No. Here's a worked answer because it is bedtime for me now. Make sure you follow it through. Ask tomorrow if unsure.

    This would have been a standard question when I was 14/15 years old
