calc reaction gibbs free energy

when calculating reaction gibbs free energy, why do the moles not cancel out in the end? when you multiply by the amount of moles?

If you use molar convention, the amount in moles (nr) is simply a pure number. In other words, think of the amount of moles as an integer without the unit of moles. The textbook briefly mentions molar convention.
