How many moles?

Consider the reaction CH4 + 2O2 -%26gt; CO2 + 2H2O

Exactly 14.5 moles of CO2 are produced upon reaction of 34.6 moles of O2 and how many moles of CH4?

How would i find this and what formula would i use?

How many moles?
You would use the balanced reaction mentioned above.

CH4 + 2O2 -%26gt; CO2 + 2H2O

From this one mole of methane will produce one mole of carbon dioxide. Therefore 14.5 moles of methane will produce 14.5 moles of carbon dioxide.
