Answer:

You mean the molarity of the parent #"barium hydroxide"# solution........

Explanation:

We assess the following stoichiometric equation:

#Ba(OH)_2 + 2HCl(aq) rarr BaCl_2(aq) + 2H_2O(l)#.

And thus 2 equiv acid are required to neutralize each equiv barium hydroxide.

Now, #"concentration"="moles of solute"/"volume of solution"#, i.e. #C=n/V#, there were #0.1*mol*L^-1xx0.035*L=3.5xx10^-3*mol# WITH RESPECT to hydrochloric acid.......

And, thus, by the given stoichiometry, there was an initial concentration of .......

#(3.5xx10^-3*molxx1/2)/(0.025*L)=0.070*mol*L^-1# with respect to the PARENT #Ba(OH)_2# solution. And I would like you to check on the solubilities of barium hydroxide to see if the question actually drew from experimental data.
