Final Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

C9H8O4 has a molar mass of 180 g/mol
convert 100.0 mg to grams and you get 0.1 g

divide the 2 and you end up with mols = 1800 mols

multiply by avogradros number (6.022e23) and you end up with molecules.

1.08396e27 molecules of aspirin in the tablet
