Answer:

There are #"0.0499 mol MgCl"# in #"4.75 g"#.

Explanation:

The molar mass (mass of one mole) of magnesium chloride, #"MgCl"_2"#, is #"95.211 g/mol"#. To calculate the number of moles of #"MgCl"_2"# in #"4.75 g"#, divide the given mass by the molar mass.

#4.75cancel"g MgCl"_2xx(1"mol MgCl"_2)/(95.211cancel"g MgCl"_2)="0.0499 mol MgCl"_2"# (rounded to three significant figures)
