  1. A strange question.
    I would start by determining the formula of the oxide.
    N = 30.4%
    O = 69.6%
    moles N = 30.4/14 = ??
    moles O = 69.6/16 = ??
    determine ratio of mols to each other and divide molar mass of the oxide by 32 to obtain the density relative to oxygen. Post your work if you get stuck.
