Determining the formula of a hydrate.

When all of the water of hydration was driven off of 4.32g of a hydrate of compound Z, the residue, the anhydrous form of Z, had a mass of 3.09g. What is the formula of the hydrate (using the symbol Z as part of it)? The formula mass of Z is 90.0

Mixture- identity of metals

When 8.900 g of a mixture of an alkali metal chloride (XCl) and an alkaline earth chloride (YCl2) was dissolved in 150.0g of water, the freezing point of the resultant solution was -4.42C.
