  1. I would assume a number (any number for the masses). Ten(10) looks like a convenient number to choose.
    mols Ne = 10/atomic mass Ne = ?
    mols Ar = 10/atomic number Ar = ?
    total mols = mols Ne + mols Ar

    XAr = nAr/total mols
    XNa = nNe/atotal mols

    pAr = XAr x Ptotal
    pNe = XNe x Ptotal
