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

yeah..... this is it....
you divide the mass reacted by the respective atomic mass. then you find the ratio.
