6th edition 8.57

How would I know that the reactions combust without it telling me so that I can use Hess's method?

The main reason in figuring out that the reaction is a combustion reaction is that for delta H that are listed, there is a subscript "c" that represents combustion. You then have to set up the combustion equations and use Hess' method to get the equation that is originally given and the overall reaction enthalpy.
