    I love stoichiometry problems.... but it took me a long time to get the hang of them. What worked for me was to remember that the reagents or reactants (CaCl2 + Na3PO4 in your reaction) relate to each other and the products of their reaction (Ca3(PO4)2 + NaCl) via mole ratios. Thanks for providing a balanced reaction equation. This tells us that for every 3 ...
