  1. Is it 1.2 L and 3.0 L ? If so,
    1.2 L / 3 breaths = 0.4 L / breath
    (3.00 L) / (0.4 L / breath) = 7.5 breaths
    (7.5 breaths)(0.060 mol/breath) = 0.45moles

  2. we have 1.2 L and 3.0 L
    therefore
    1.2 L / 3 breaths = 0.4 L / breath
    (3.00 L) / (0.4 L / breath) = 7.5 breaths
    (7.5 breaths)(0.060 mol/breath) = 0.45moles
