Break up the formula compound and see what are the atoms present.

2 atoms of Na, 1 atom of S, and 4 atoms of Oxygen.

Refer to your periodic table and find out the formula mass for each individual atom present.

Na = 23.0

Note: It's multiplied by 2 because there are two atoms of Na.

S = 32.1

O = 16.0

Add the individual formula mass together and therefore it will give you the overall formula mass of

46.0 + 32.1 + 64.0 = 142.1 g/mol is the formula mass of
