Hi,

propane molecular formula is C3H8 which gives 3 ml of CO2 per 1 mole

But the CO and CH4 give one mole each per one mole.

In the 100 ml mixture the CO and CH4 are (100-36.5)=63.5 ml which will give only 63.5 ml of CO2

And propane gives 3×(36.5)ml of CO2.

Total CO2 produced = 109.5 + 63.5 = 173 ml.
