lb equals 217 mL kg

This is a volume expansion or concentration dilution type problem. The essential formula is Q_1C_1 = Q_2C_2.
Here,

Q_1 = initial quantity = 39.5\quadmL.
C_1 = initial concentration = 38.25\quad%
Q_2 = final quantity = ?\quad mL.
C_2 = final concentration = 5.89\quad %

Therefore, rearranging the formula, we get:
Q_2 = (Q_1 × C_1)/(C_2) therefore Q_2 = (39.5 × 38.25) /5.89=256.5\quad mL in nearest whole number.

Now, subtract the initial quantity of the solution (39.5\quadmL) from this final quantity (256.5\quadmL) to determine the amount of solvent to be added: 256.5\quadmL-39.5\quadmL=217\quadmL. (Ans)
