Answer:

Write the balanced reaction, convert the amounts to moles, and determine which reagent has the least amount of moles, taking into account the stoichiometric coefficients.

Explanation:

Take a hypothetical reaction

#A + 2B rarr C + D#

If the reaction vessel contains 2 mol of #A# and 3 mol of #B#, then #B# is still the limiting reagent because it would require 4 mol of B for the system to react to completion.
