Hi Jenny, I cannot help either but I would like to suggest that you use a title like:

It is better when people use less generic titles.

From the equation we can see that    3 moles of O2 are produced in the reaction

at STP    , one mole of gas occupies   22.4 liters  (remember that?....we'll need it shortly)

3 x 22.4 = 67.2 liters for the COMPLETE reaction in the equation......we are only going to get some fraction of this reaction because we are only using  212 gm of gold oxide

Au2O3   has a molar weight  of   2( gold)  + 3(oxygen)  =  2(196.97 ) + 3 (15.999) = 441.937 gm   (from periodic table)

we only have   212 gm of this stuff   which represents   212/441.937 = .4797 moles of Au2O3

ONE MORE THING    Look at the equation given:    for every   2 moles of Au2O3 used , you GET 3 moles of 02

so  you get   3/2 as much O2 in moles as moles of Au2O3 used .......THIS NEEDS TO BE CLEAR.....OK?

.4797 moles AuO3  x 3/2 = .71955 moles of O2 produced

Now remember earlier that an ideal gas at STP = 22.4 liters ???????

22.4 liters/mole   X   .71955 moles = 16.118 liters of O2 at STP

Ooops....didn'y answer all of the questions...

#2    2 moles of  AuO3  produce 4 moles of Au

.4797 moles Au2O3  x 2 = .9594 moles Au produced

#3  85 grams of Au = 85/196.96 mole          1/2 as many moles Au2O3 is needed

85/196.96   x  1/2 = .4315 moles

we already found Au2O3 moles weigh 441.937 gm

.4315 mole x 441.937 gm/mole = 190.72 gms of Au2O3 are needed
