Answer:

Of #"stannous oxide"# or #"stannic oxide"#?

Explanation:

Well, we can do both.........

#SnO,# #"stannous oxide:"#

#"Formula mass"=(118.7+15.999)*g*mol^-1=134.7*g*mol^-1.#

#SnO_2,# #"stannic oxide:"#

#"Formula mass"=(118.7+2xx15.999)*g*mol^-1=150.7*g*mol^-1.#

There are other mixed valence oxides known.
