    Hardly an advanced question but I can't get my head round it
    25.0 cm3 of a sodium hydroxide solution was pipetted into a conical flask and titrated with astandard solution of 0.200 mol dm-3(0.2M) hydrochloric acid. It was found that 15 cm3 ofhydrochloric acid was needed to neutralise the sodium hydroxide. What was the concentration ofthe acid?
    is the concentration not given to you?

    I think the question is asking for the conc of NaOH , I got 0.3 M for that. Is that right?
