Please see the attached file.

1. Rewrite and balance the reaction:
C5H11OH + 7.5O2 = 5CO2 + 6H2O

MW (C5H11OH) = 5*12+12+16 = 88 (g/mol)
MW (O2) = 32 (g/mol)
MW (H2O) = 18 (g/mol)

According to reaction balance, 1 mol of C5H11OH reacts with 7.5 mol of O2.
Number of mole of C5H11OH = 230/88 = 2.61 (mol)
Thus number of mole of O2 required = 2.61*7.5 = ...
