How many carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) molecules are in 3.00 mol of CCl4? How many carbon atoms? How many chlorine atoms? How many total atoms?

I have no idea how to do all of this =\

  1. There are 6.02 x 10^23 molecules in a mole of CCl4 or a mole of anything else. So if one mole contains 6.02 x 10^23 molecules, how many molecules will be in 2 moles? 3 moles? 4 moles?
    After you know how many molecules of CCl4 you have, look at the formula. There is 1 carbon atom per molecule of CCl4. So if you have 6.02 x 10^23 molecules of CCl4 and each one of those contains 1 atom of C, how many atoms of C will you have?
    For Cl, notice you have 4 atoms of Cl for every molecule of CCl4.
    Total atoms must be atoms C + atoms Cl.
