Given the info below, what is the number of moles of ATP that could be synthesized from ADP and Pi (deltaG° = 7700 cal/mol) upon complete oxidation of one mole of ethanol to 2 CO2 and 3 H2O? (with an assumed efficiency of 37%)

Glucose ---> 2 ethanol + 2 CO2 deltaG°= -55,000 cal/mol

Glucose + 6 O2 ---> 6C02 + 6H20 deltaG° = -686,000 cal/mol
