Problem

Write a ratio showing the relationship between the amounts of each element for each of the following:Three space-filling molecular models: a, b, and c. Model a consists of five molecules each with a central black sphere surrounded by two red spheres in a linear geometry. Model b consists of three molecules each with two combined red spheres and two white spheres, one on each red sphere. Model c consists of three molecules each with a central red sphere surrounded by two smaller white spheres in a bent geometry.
