I don't understand these two questions. Any help on how to figure this would be great. Thanks.

1. Write the equation for the decomposition of the hydrate, MgC*XH₂O

2. Write the equation for the decomposition of the hydrate, CuSO₄*XH₂O.

    USUALLY, when asked to write the decomposition for hydrates, we mean to remove the water to make the anhydrous material but keep the remainder of the molecule intact. If that is the intent here, then
    MgC*xH2O ==> MgC + xH2O
    CuSO4*XH2O ==> CuSO4 + xH2O
