Approx.

#### Explanation:

We need a stoichiometric equation to represent the equation, and inform our calculation.....

And thus 1 equiv of calcium carbonate decomposes with heat to give 1 equiv of calcium oxide, and 1 equiv of carbon dioxide.

And so we determine the molar quantities......

And thus we get THREE MOLES EACH of calcium oxide and carbon dioxide.......
