Answer:

Yes

Explanation:

When diluting a solution with distilled water, #M_1V_1=M_2V_2# where #M_1# and #V_1# are the molarity and volume of the concentrated solution and #M_2# and #V_2# are the molarity and volume of the dilute solution.

In this situation, #M_1=1.0247"M"#, #V_1=25"mL"#, and #V_2=250."mL"#. Rearranging the equation to solve for #M_2# gives #M_2=(M_1V_1)/V_2#.

Plugging in the known values, we have #M_2=((1.0247"M")(25"mL"))/((250."mL"))#, and solving that gives #M_2=0.10247"M"#
