I can never seem to wrap my head around the questions where they ask you to calculate the empirical formula. The ones where they give you the initial mass of the hydrocarbon and the mass of CO2 and H2O produced are simple enough, but how do you calculate these type?

For example,
Complete combustion of a hydrocarbon produced 0.66g of CO2 and 0.225g of H2O. Which of the following formulae (molecular) is consistent with this data?

A. C3H6
B. C3H8
C. C656
D. C6H10

Answer's A. Can anyone please help? The board exam is tomorrow and I've lost all hope.
