full information is not given so , we will take an example to get the way to solve these types of problems

The percentage of metal in two metal oxides, A and B is 74.2% and 59%, respectively. Show that the law of multiple proportions is obeyed.

In A, 74.2 g of metal combines with 25.8 g of oxygen

combines with 1 g of oxygen

=

In B, 59 g of metal combines with 41 g of oxygen

And combines with 1 g of oxygen

=

∴ The ratio by weight of metal combining with fixed mass of oxygen in A and B

=2.87:1.43=2:1

Hence, law of multiple proportions is obeyed
