I already balanced the equation: 

 

2 Ag + HgCl2 ——-> 2 AgCl + Hg

 

I am just so confused on how to solve this! What I know for sure is that the percent yield is actual yield/theoretical yield * (100), but I am not sure if that formula even matters in this question. I would love to learn though!
