Mole conversions

The question reads: Ammonia used to make fertilizers for lawns and gardens is made by reacting nitrogen with hydrogen

N2(g) + H2(g) ----> NH3(g)

a. Balance the equation (I understand this.)

b. Find the number of moles of ammonia formed when 1.34 moles of nitrogen reacts.

c. Find the mass in grams of nitrogen required to form 1.00 X 10^3 grams of ammonia

d. Find the number of molecules of ammonia formed when 1.34 grams of hydrogen reacts.

I have a test on Monday and I can't figure out problems like these.
