For this you would just take each percentage of the total grams, which is 35.0g

1. Convert the percent to a decimal ===> 0.245, 0.528

2. Multiply decimal by total grams to get the amount of grams of the first two components ====> 0.245 * 35 = 8.575

0.528 * 35 = 18.48

3. Add the two components ===> (8.58 + 18.48) = 27.06

4. Subtract the sum of the two components from the total grams to get the amount of component c ====> 35 - 27.06 = 7.94

5. Component A = 8.58 Component B = 18.48 Component C = 7.94
