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

So, the ratio of X:N is about 80:20, and X is 79 g/mol.

XN = 79 + 14 = 93, 14/93 = 15%

XN2 = 79 + 28 = 107, 28/107 = 26%

X2N3 = 158 + 42 = 200/ 42/200 = 21% :)


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