    Answer:

    N2O5

    Explanation:

    1. Convert to moles

    24.5g N * 1mol/14g = 1.75

    70.0g * 1mol/16g = 4.375

    2. Divide each value by the smallest

    1.75/1.75 = 1

    4.375/1.75 = 2.5

    3. Multiply each by a whole number so that they are both whole numbers

    1*2 = 2

    2.5*2 = 5

    4. These are moles of elements present in the compound
