Xenon of mass 5.08 g reacts with fluorine to form 9.49 g of a xenon fluoride. What is the empirical formula of this
compound?
A) XeF6
B) XeF4
C) XeF2
D) XeF
E) Xe2F

I am not familiar with these types of empirical formula problems. If I'm given the percentages of the elements in the compound, I know what to do, but I have no idea what to do here.

Thanks!
