convert Cacl2.6h20 to cacl2.2h20


If i have a chemical formula :
27% Cacl2.6h20
43 % hso
30% balance a mix of chemicals

How do i convert this formula to % ;)Cacl2.2h20 and H20 ?
The molecular weights are as follows :

Cacl2. 6h20
% Cacl2 = 50.66
% h20 = 49.34

% Cacl2 = 75.49
% h20 = 24.51

Please help me if you can. Many thank yous Jane ;)

This reeks of being a homework question, and it looks like you haven't put much effort into it. First of all, use proper capitalization, Cacl2 != CaCl<sub>2</sub>(Using subscripts goes a long way too). Similarly, H20 != H<sub>2</sub>O. Show the work that you have done so far. What approaches have you tried/how far have you gotten?

Boil it down while weighing it periodically? I'm not clear on what you mean by "hso". H2O?

I might have given a link to the FAQ, and made a statement regarding asking US to just do your homework for you, vs. asking us questions related to YOU understanding that homework.

I mean, that was a first post. Whoever it was never made another one.

The explosion removed the windows, the door and most of the chimney.
It was the sort of thing you expected in the Street of alchemists. The neighbors preferred explosions, which were at least identifiable and soon over. They were better than the smells, which crept up on you.
-Terry Pratchett, "Moving Pictures"

It is essential that persons having explosive 
substances under their charge should never 
lose sight of the conviction that, preventive 
measures should always be prescribed 
on the hypothesis of an explosion.

Marcellin Berthelot - 1892 Explosives and their power - Page 47
