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

2 C2H6 +7 O2 = 4 CO2 + 6 H2O 
moles O2 = 62.3 g / 32 g/mol=1.95 
the ratio between C2H6 and O2 is 2 : 7 
moles of ethae (C2H6) required = 1.95 x 2/7=0.557

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
