Writing a balanced chemical equation for combustion of compound X

A compound "X" is composed of 58.77% C, 13.81% H, and 27.42% N, by mass, and has a molar mass close to 100 g/mol. Use this information to write a balanced chemical equation for the combustion of the compound X, assuming that this reaction produces only CO2, H2O, and N2.

Compound Reaction and Observations

2 elements, X and Y, react to form 2 different compunds. 7.00g of X and 4.50g of Y react completely to produce a compound formula XY. 14.0g of X and 3.00g of Y react completely to produce a compound with formula XaYb. Determine values of a and b consistent with these observations.
