Answer:

#"% yield"="Moles of product"/"Moles of reactant"xx100%#

Explanation:

And this expression assumes that there is a 1:1 relationship between reactants and products, i.e.

#ArarrB#

For some reactions, i.e.

#2A+BrarrC#,

we must appropriately weight the yield ratio so that it accurately reflects the given stoichiometry. Capisce?
