Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Luc on Sunday, April 4, 2010 at 5:48pm.

A gas sample containing only SO2, PF3 and SF6 has the following mass percent composition: 30.4% SO2 and 28.4% PF3. Calculate the partial pressure (atm) of SO2 if the total pressure of the sample is 676.4 torr.

I tried taking the total pressure in atm and multiplying it with the percent SO2 given, and came up with 0.271atm; however, the homework program that I'm using said that the correct answer is 0.391atm. Can someone point me in the right direction with this question?
