8.73 b and 8.75 c

For 8.73 b, you break 4 mol of c-H bonds from CH4. However, in 8.75 c, you break 1 mol C-H bonds from CH4. Im really confused why this is.

In 8.75c, 4 C-H bonds are still broken. It's just written as 1 in the answer key because it cancels with the 3 C-H bonds formed in CH3Cl in the products.
