I'm doing boiling point elevation and the formula is:
deltaT_b = k_b * m * i
(k_b = 0.52 degrees C/m for water)

I don't know how to use this calculation with this problem: Calculate the boiling point of an aqueous solution containing 3.8% by mass of NaCl. Do I take 3.8% of NaCl's mass of 58.44g? How do I set up the equation?
