    Firstly, why do you think you are dividing by 2?

    As for the multiplication by 5, I don't see how that fits in.

    The mark scheme says that you need to multiply by 5 which is what I don't understand. I thought that you divide the values by 2 as that's the volume but I may be wrong :|

    You're right. To get concentration you divide moles by volume.

    But what's the units of volume?

    dm3
    The volume they give you is 200cm3
    How do you convert that to the new units?

    I really don't see why the multiplying by 5 is necessary..

    Ohh.. Oops. It's meant to be 0.2. Dividing by 0.2 and t.multiplying my five is equivalent so it makes sense now :3
