Hi. Im having problems with finding the empirical formulae(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the emprical formula of magnesium nitride if 0.72g of magnesium combines with 0.28g nitrogen?

So what would my first step be? Find magesuim... which would be 0.44g?

Can you take me through the steps?

Thx
