Chemistry Please Help!

Liquid nitroglycerine (C3H5(NO3)3) is a powerful explosive. When it detonates, it produces a gaseous mixture of nitrogen, water, carbon dioxide, and oxygen.

a) What is the theoretical yield of carbon dioxide if 10.00g of the nitroglycerine explodes?

b) If the actual amount of carbon dioxide obtained is 4.81g, what is the percent yield?

c) How many molecules of nitrogen would actually be produced?
