Cant Figure this One out?

Using the following chemical equation:     P (s)   +   Cl2 (g)    →  PCl3 (l),

if 35.0 grams of chlorine react with excess phosphorus metal and 42.5 grams of phosphorous trichloride are produced in the lab, what is the percent yield?

Can you plz clearly explain/indicate the steps in your thought process in solving this problem, including labeling each number with units and chemical formula, using dimensional analysis, and reporting your answer to the correct number of significant figures?
