Step 1

Given, one sample contains 0.28 grams of X and other sample contains 0.37 grams of X.  The composition of Y in both samples is calculated as help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseIn First sample,Y =1.00 g-0.28 gX= 0.72 g Y In Second sample, Y=1.00g-0.37gX-0.63g Y Ratio of two samples= (0.72g Y/0.28g X)-1.5 (0.63g Y/0.37gX) fullscreen
