(100. g H2O2) / (34.015 g H2O2/mol) x (1 mol O2 / 2 mol H2O2) x (0.93) x (31.99886 g O2/mol) = 43.7 g O2

Hydrogen Peroxide ➜ Water + Oxygen

2H₂O₂ ➜ 2H₂O + O₂

2 moles of H₂O₂ ➜ 2 moles of water + 1 mole of O₂

68 g of H₂O₂ ➜ 36 g of water + 32 g of O₂

Assuming that "93%" means 93% of theoretical yield

given the 93% number, 68 g of H₂O₂ would yield 0.93•32 g of O₂, or 29.76 g

so the ratio is 29.76/68

and x/100 = 29.76/68

x = 51.3 g

OR assuming that "93%" means 93% actual yield, then answer is 93 g
