I want to make sure I am right but say you are asked to find the limiting reagent in a chemical reaction and then asked how many moles of that reagent is required, would you use the coefficient in the equation or do you need to solve it with conversions?
What you need to do is first find the limiting reagent. You would do this by converting mass of both reagents to moles, and then using the stoichiometric coefficients to analyze which reagent will run out first. In short, you would need to use the coefficient in the equation in your conversions in order to solve this problem.
