50.0g of Sulphur is mixed with 100.0g of iron and heated strongly. When the reaction is complete 12.5g of iron remains. What is the formula of the sulphide formed?

What i have done so far is i got the 2 mols of each element.

Fe=1.79
S=1.56

i divided biggest/smallest and i get 1.41
now i need to know how to put it in ratio form and what to do to find the formula for Sulphide

hmm so i should go 100-12.5 then find the mol then find the ratio?

yeah..... this is it....

you divide the mass reacted by the respective atomic mass. then you find the ratio.
