# Question #104c1

##### 1 Answer

A 10X TBE solution is 10 times as concentrated as a 1X TBE solution, which means that you must dilute it 10-fold to get it to match a 1X TBE solution.

Since the solution will have various components of different molarities, *concentrated solution* - 1X, 5X, 10X, 100X, and so on.

This is usefull when you're not concerned about the individual components of the solution, but rather about how concentrated or diluted a solution is.

So, you're basically dealing with a dilution calculation

In you case, you'll get

This will be the final volume of the solution, which means that the volume of buffer you must add is
