Answer:

About #70*g# of salt, and #130*mL# water.........

Explanation:

#"Concentration"="Mass of solute"/"Mass of solute + mass of water"xx100%#

And thus #35%="Mass of solute"/(200*g)#....

And so #"mass of solute"-=35%xx200*g=70*g#.

And the volume of the solution would change only very marginally, even upon the addition of such a mass of solute.
