Acetic acid (CH3COOH) reacts with isopentyl alcohol (C5H12O) to yield the ester isopentyl acetate which has the odour of bananas. If the yield from the reaction is 45%, how many grams of isopentyl acetate are formed when 3.90 g of acetic acid and 6.28 grams of isopentyl alcohol are reacted?

CH3COOH + C5H12O → C7H14O2 + H2O

I was wondering do i have to do anything with the 45%?
