• Left to Right

## Explanation:

Step 1: Define

2.3 × 10²⁴ formula units KNO₃

Step 2: Identify Conversions

Avogadro's Number

Molar Mass of K - 39.10 g/mol

Molar Mass of N - 14.01 g/mol

Molar Mass of O - 16.00 g.mol

Molar Mass of KNO₃ - 39.10 + 14.01 + 3(16.00) = 101.11 g/mol

Step 3: Convert

= 386.172 g KNO₃

Step 4: Check

We are given 2 sig figs. Follow sig fig rules and round.

386.172 g KNO₃ ≈ 390 g KNO₃
