Before I forget it, did you get the problem of toluene and benzene, in which the problem asked for X of one of them IN THE SOLUTION, worked? I can do that one if you post it.

moles ether = ?
moles EtOH = ?
Xether = nether/total mols.
XEtOH = nEtOH/total mols.

pether = Xether*Poether
pEtOH = XEtOH*PoEtOH
Then total vapor pressure = pethr + pEtOH.
