# How many g of Kcl would have to be dissolved in $60\;g\; H_2O$ to give $20\%$ by weight of solution ?

$(a)\;15\;g \\ (b)\;1.5\;g \\(c)\;11.5\;g \\(d)\;31.5\;g$

$\%$ by weight =$\large\frac{Weight\; of\; solute}{Weight \;of \;solution } \times$$100 Suppose the weight of solute =x or 20 =\large\frac{x}{x+60}$$\times 100$
or $x= 15\;g$
Hence a is the correct answer.
