Answer:

#"Concentration"# #=# #"Moles of solute"/"Volume of solution"#

Explanation:

And #"mass of solute "=" moles"xx"molar mass"#

And so we calculate the product:

#"Volume"xx"Concentration"xx"Molar mass of magnesium sulfate"#

#=125xx10^-3cancel(L)xx0.200*cancel(mol*L^-1)xx120.37*g*cancel(mol^-1)#, an answer with units of mass as required.

#=??*g#
