Sea water

Seawater contains about 4.3% salt. How many dm3 of distilled water we must pour into 5 dm3 of sea water to get water with 1.8% salt?

Correct answer:

V =  6.94 dm3

Step-by-step explanation:

4.3% 5=1.8% (5+V) 4.3/100 5=1.8/100 (5+V)  4.3 5=1.8 (5+V)  1.8V=12.5  V=125186.944444=12518 dm3=6.94 dm3
