    A mouthwash contains 22.5% alchohol by mass. If the bottle of mouthwash contains 350 mL, what is the mass, in g, of alcohol?

    Using the (m/v)%= Mass of solute (g)X100
    Volume of solution(mL)

    So far, I have:

    Step 1. 22.5% alcohol= 22.5g alcohol
    100 mL solution
    Step 2. 350 mL mouth wash

    and this is where I loose it.

    Step one was given to me by my professor, however, I don't really know how to set up this problem ...... HELP!
