Hi I am a little confused about the solutions manual for this problem. Shouldnt delta G = sum of delta Gf (products) - sum of delta Gf (reactants)? but the solutions manual subtracts all of them.

That formula still applies. It's just that CH3CH2OH is the only noteworthy product (H2 has a standard Gibbs free energy of 0), so you'd be subtracting the reactant Gibbs free energy values from that of CH3CH2OH. But regardless, the formula should still give you the correct value.

For this question does anyone know where they got the values from??
