Bond Enthalpies and Standard Enthalpies of Formation

What do you plug in to the equations for these methods if you aren't given the or the values? How do you use the equation to determine this?

Typically, when these values are not given to you they are 0 (usually for naturally occurring compounds, such as the enthalpy of formation for O2 0). Or if no values are given to you, you may use delta G= delta H-TdeltaS

If the values are not given, you might have to use the ∆G° = ∆H° - T∆S°equation to calculate enthalpy. If not, then the value might be zero. I don't believe there should be much confusion regarding this on the final.
