for part a and b, you would use the molar mass of the element to calculate the number of moles in each sample of the element. for part c, you would use avogadro's number to calculate the amount of moles in amount given.

Parts (a) and (b) use the equation m= n * M.
m- mass of the sample
n- amount in moles
M- molar mass

Part (c) uses the equation n = N/NA
n- amount in moles
N- number of objects
