Hi, I have a few questions that I am struggling with. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Question 1
Calculate the molar mass of calcium chloride dihydrate, CaCl2 • 2H2O.
Please use the Periodic Table values rounded to the hundredths place for your calculation and round your answer to the hundredths place and remember, the "dot" (•) means closely associated, reprsenting the ADDITION of two waters of hydration to the calcium chloride formula unit.

Question 2
What is the theoretical yield of calcium carbonate if 2.97 grams of calcium chloride dihydrate reacts with excess sodium carbonate according to the balanced chemical reaction shown below?

Please use molar mass values calculated and rounded to the hundredths place, and round your answer to the hundredths place.

Question 3
What is the percent yield of calcium carbonate if your theoretical yield was 2.07 grams, and your actual yield was 1.46 grams, from the balanced chemical reaction shown below?
