Answer:

#"Density,"# #rho="Mass of liquid"/"Volume"=1.05*g*mL^-1#

Explanation:

And thus we work out the quotient with the given data; note that we have to subtract the tare weight, i.e. the mass of the container:

#"Mass"/"Volume"=(1300*g-250*g)/(1000*mL)=(1050*g)/(1000*mL)#

#=1.05*g*mL^-1...................#
