    A molecular compounds dissolves in water to give up H+ ions and SO4^2- ions. If the compounds dissolved was HSO4^-, what mass of SO4^2- exists in the solution if 10 moles of it were dissolved?

    a) 96.07 g
    b) 130.22 g
    c) 192.14 g

    The answer I came up with is (a), but what about the 10 moles. (a) is the mass of the compound. Please show me what I'm not doing right or not seeing.
