I did a chem lab and have to figure out some stuff off of some data I found during the lab

Weight of empty crucible and cover: 19.74 g
Weight of crucible, cover and hydrated salt: 22.74 g
Weight of crucible, cover and hydrated salt after 1st heating: 22.13 g
Weight of crucible, cover and hydrated salt after 2nd heating: 22.56 g
Weight of crucible, cover and hydrated salt after 3rd heating: 21.54 g

Calculate the weight of the hydrated salt.

Calculate the weight of the anhydrous salt.

• Chem Lab -

22.74 g = xble, cover, salt
-19.74 g = xble, cover
-----------
...xxxxxx = weight of the hydrated salt.

The rest of it isn't that easy because the data boggles my mind.
First weighing ok. Second weighing--I don't see how it could GAIN weight.
Third weighing--It went down, which is good, but since it changed so much you should have heated it again. The idea is to heat to constant weight.
I would calculate the weight of the anhydrous salt this way; it's the best data you have.
21.54 g xble, cover, anhyd salt
-19.74 = xble, cover.
---------
xxxxxxx = weight anhydrous salt
