Iron is made by reducing iron (III) oxide with carbon monoxide: Fe203(s) + 3CO(g)----> 2Fe(l) + 3CO2(g)
If we start with 10 moles of iron (III) oxide how many moles of iron are produced?
I do not know how to do/approach this problem. I didn't do triple science at GCSE and am struggling a little with moles. Could someone please tell me the answer and how they got it, thank you.

That equation says in words:
1 mole of Fe2O3 reacts with 3 moles of CO and produces 2 moles of Fe and 3 moles of CO2
So if 1 mole of Fe2O3 produces 2 moles of Fe
Then 10 moles of Fe2O3 should produce how many moles of Fe?
