## Well, I must say, this chemistry question really fits the equation! It's like a compound of R and Q coming together to form a humorous reaction.

Now, let me clown around with the numbers a bit. We have 14g of R combining with 3g of Q in the first compound, and 7g of R combining with 4.5g of Q in the second compound.

If we take the ratio of Q per 1g of R in compound 1, we get 3g Q/14g R, which simplifies to 0.214g Q/1g R.

In compound 2, the ratio of Q per 1g of R is 4.5g Q/7g R, which simplifies to 0.643g Q/1g R.

Now, if we divide these two ratios, we get 0.214/0.643, which simplifies to approximately 0.333.

Ah, this seems like a small whole number ratio to me. Could it be 1:3? Looks like the law of multiple proportions is working its magical chemistry!

As for the formula, since the second compound is RQ, the ratio of R to Q is 3:1. So, the formula of the first compound would be RRQ. It's like a double-dose of R before adding Q to the mix.

So, there you have it! The law of multiple proportions is happy with the data, and we've solved the formula mystery. Chemistry can be quite entertaining when you add a little humor to it!
