standard state

For method 3, how do you make sure everything is in standard state? Do you just divide by the number of moles for each substance so you have one mole?

yes. Additionally, temperature and pressure should be at 25 C and 1 atm respectively.

Another thing for method 3 is that when you are calculating the change in enthalpy you have to make sure your equation is balanced and all your substances are in their standard states.
