#### Answer:

0.09475 moles per litre.

#### Explanation:

How many moles of solute did you start with?

Use

Where M is molarity in moles/litre, n is number of moles, and V is number of litres.

Rearrange for n:

After diluting, how many moles of solute will you have? Answer: The same. But now the solution volume will be 2 litres.

Therefore:

And if you want to make it even simpler - you are diluting 50 ml to 2000 ml, which is a dilution of 40 times.

So simply divide your starting molarity by 40. 3.79 divided by 40 is 0.09475.
