  1. Since one H was used from X (benzoic acid), then the equivalent weight is molar mass/1.
    The equivalent weight for Ca(OH)2 is molar mass/2 since 2 OH^- were neutralized.
    For benzoic acid that is about 122 and for Ca(OH)2 that is about 74/2 but you need to confirm those by looking up the exact molar masses.
