 I think the question is incomplete bcoz molecular mass of X, Y, Z are not given , so we cannot calculate moles ... But if the question is this much then -

 

Moles= given mass / molar mass

moles 0f X= 45/Wx .  ( bcoz its 45% by wt. so this means there is 45g of X in 100 g of solution)

moles of Y= 15/ Wy .

moles of Z= 40/ Wz .

 

 Mole fraction = moles of compound / total moles.

Xx = moles of X / total moles(i.e. moles of X + Y + Z)

 

And so on for Y and Z.
