Two samples that are known to come from binary compounds of nitrogen (N) and oxygen (O) are analyzed. Sample A is found to contain 32.3 g of nitrogen and 36.9 g of Oxygen. Sample B is found to contain 74.6 g of nitrogen and 170 g of oxygen. Do samples A and B obey the law of definite proportions, the law of multiple proportions, both laws, or neither law? Could A and B be samples of the same compound or are they different compounds?
