Answer:

Well, first you need the molecular formula of #"vitamin A"#.

Explanation:

I don't know it, but this site relates that vitamin A is a family of organic compounds that includes #"retinol"#, i.e. #C_20H_30O#, i.e. 6 degrees of unsaturation.

And #C_20H_30O# gives a molecular mass of...........

#(20xx12.011+30xx1.00794+16.00)*g*mol^-1=286.46*g*mol^-1.#
