Yes, the 2nd reaction is the 1st reaction reversed. The book says when you have a reaction that is reversed, take the opposite sign of the ÄH... which should be -154 by that definition. I'm not sure if I am suppose to divide 154 by 2??

HELP!! I cannot find the value of ÄH, for the following reactions. A + 2B --> C + 3D , ÄH = 154 kJ 1/2C + 3/2D --> 1/2A + B, ÄH= ? I have tried the answers -302 and 154 and neither were correct. Have any suggestions?? Thank You!
