Using John Dalton's law of multiple proportions. There are two different compounds of sulfur and fluorine. In SF6, the mass of fluorine per gram of sulfur is 3.55 gF/gS. IN the compound, SFx, the mass of fluorine per gram of sulfur is 1.18 g F/g S. What is the value of X for the second compound?

ANd it gives me a hint: Determine the relationship between the mass ratios.

*Express your answer as an integer.

    I think there are easier ways to determine the formula but here is what I think.
    SF6.......SFx
    S3.55/1.18F6.00/1.00 =
    S3.00F6.00 =
    SF2
    Check my thinking.
