There will be 30 g of carbon and 80 g of oxygen.

#### Explanation:

If you had 3 g of $\text{C}$ and 8 g of $\text{O}$, you would have 11 g of ${\text{CO}}_{2}$.

∴ In 110 g of ${\text{CO}}_{2}$, there would be

$\text{Mass of C" = 110 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g CO"_2))) × "3 g C"/(11 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g CO"_2)))) = "30 g C}$

$\text{Mass of O" = 110 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g CO"_2))) × "8 g C"/(11 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g CO"_2)))) = "80 g O}$
