8.75 Use the bond enthalpies in Tables 8.6 and 8.7 to estimate the reaction enthalpy for
(a) N2(g)+  3 F2(g) --> 2 NF3(g)
(b) CH3CHCH2(g) + H2O(g) --> CH3CH(OH)CH3(g)
(c) CH4(g)+  Cl2(g) -->CH3Cl(g)+  HCl(g)

How am I supposed to know which mean bond enthalpies to use for CH3CHCH2 and CH3CH(OH)CH3?

Draw the Lewis structures, and determine which bonds are breaking and which are forming. Also please provide the enthalpy values so I can help see what is going wrong.
