#### Answer:

Silver - Ag = 12 atoms

Sulfur - S = 6 atoms

Oxygen - O = 24 atoms

#### Explanation:

To find the number of atoms in the molecules represented by

We begin by determining the atoms in one molecule of

We look at the subscripts of the molecule and determine that there are

2 atoms of Ag - Silver

1 atom of S - Sulfur

and

4 atoms of O - Oxygen

Since the original situation is

We know that the coefficient

So we must multiply the single molecule values by 6

and
