Answer:

#"0.25 mol CH"_4"#

Explanation:

The particles of #"CH"_4# are molecules.

#1"mol CH"_4=6.022xx10^23"molecules CH"_4"#

To determine the moles of #"CH"_4"#, divide the given number of molecules by #6.022xx10^23# molecules/mol.

#1.5xx10^23cancel"molecules CH"_4xx(1"mol CH"_4)/(6.022xx10^23cancel"molecules CH"_4)="0.25 mol CH"_4"# (rounded to two significant figures)
