#### Explanation:

The percent by mass formula is expressed as:

From the question we have:

mass of solute = 29 g

volume of solution = 202 mL

density of solution = 1.00 g/mL

From the volume and density, we can find the mass of solution using this formula:

Rearranging the formula to find mass:

Plugging in the values into percent by mass formula:
