1. Write the equation and balance it.
Use the coefficients in the balanced equation to tell you what the ratio is and use logic to determine mols CO2 produced. Post your work if you get stuck.

2. I balanced to 2Fe + 3CO2. but do not know where to go from here

3. I would use the dimensional analysis approach.
Start with what you have (in this case 15 mols Fe2O3) and convert to mols CO2.
15 mols Fe2O3 x (3 mols CO2/2 mols Fe2O3) = ??
Notice that the 3 mols CO2 and 2 mols Fe2O3 come form your equation. Also notice that mole Fe2O3 you start with cancel with mols Fe2O3 in the denominator of the fraction leaving the unit mol CO2 left (and that is what you want from the problem).
For your next problem, convert mols CO2 to grams CO2. mols = g/molar mass.

5. If I rounded 22.5 mols [15*(3/2) = 22.5], I would round to 22 (because I always round to the even number if the last number is a 5). But your answer is not wrong. Some people always round up. Follow the practice of your teacher.
