If the decomposition of 3.785 g iron (III) chloride yields 1.302 g iron and 2.483 g chlorine, how many grams of iron and chlorine are produced when 2.175 g iron (III) chloride decomposes?

v
2Fe 1.302   x
+
3Cl2 2.483   y

I would do it this way.
For Fe, x = 1.302 x (2.175/3.785) = 0.758 g
For Cl2 2.175-0.758 = 1.427 g
