Asprin, C9H8O4, is prepared by reacting salicylic acid, C7H6O3, with acetic anhydride, C4H6O3, in the reaction:

C7H6O3 + C4H6O3 ---> C9H8O4 + C2H4O2

A student is told to prepare 45.0 g asprin. She is also told to use a 55% excess of acetic anydride and to expect to get an 85% yeild in the reaction. How many grams of each reactant should she use?
