I am new to AP Chem and given a problem that I cannot begin to figure out how to compute. None of my calculations come up with the correct answer. How do I work through this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

PROBLEM: A sample containing NACl, SA2S04 and NAN03 (the number are sub), gives the following elemental analysis: NA: 32.08%; O: 36.01%; Cl: 19.51%. Calculate the mass percent of each compound in the sample?

How do I do this. My calculations are not coming out. Please help
