Determine the number of moles of Nitrogen atoms in a sample of C_{7}H_{5}(NO_{2})_{3}that has the same number of oxygen atoms as 12.6 grams of sugar.

2. Relevant equations

Mole calculations

3. The attempt at a solution

First find the amount of moles of Oxygen in sugar. Multiply 12.6g by 96grams O/ 180grams sugar to get 6.72grams of sugar. The divide 6.72grams by 16 to get 0.42 moles of Oxygen. Then I'm struggling at the next part. To get the same amount of moles of Nitrogen shouldn't I just divide 0.42 by 3 to get 0.14? 0.14 was not the correct response on mastering chem.
