Calculate the mass percent composition of carbon in the following carbon compound.

C_8H_13O_5N

I got 0.4729 as an answer but it's wrong. Please help me.

  • chemistry -

    0.4729 is correct as a fraction, convert to 47.29% by multiplying by 100.

  • chemistry -

    BTW, you go to a lot of extra trouble by typing the _ to show subscripts. The tutors on the board understand that C8H12O5N is what you mean. There is a way to write subscripts but it's too much trouble to do. For example,
    C8H13O5N
