# Please answer this question tomorrow exams

The mass percentage of a solution is defined as

Where, mass of a solution = Mass of solute + Mass of solvent

We are given that the sugar solution is 2.5 % and the mass of solution is 500g. Let y grams be the mass of sugar (solute) present in 500g of solution. Therefore

2.5 = (y / 500) X 100

This gives y = 12.5

Therefore mass of water (solute) = mass of solution - mass of sugar (solute)

= (500 - 12.5) g

= 487.5 g

Hence 487.5 g of water would be required.

Second part of the question seems to be incomplete. Please check the question and post again. We will try to help you out as soon as possible.
