#### Explanation:

- Find the density of the solution by the formula:

#sp. gravity=(rho " solution")/(rho " water at " 4^oC)# - Rearrange the formula;

#rho " solution"=(sp. gravity)(rho " water at " 4^oC)#

where:

#rho " water at " 4^oC=1 "g/ml"# - Plug in values to find density of solution to the formula in step 2;

#rho " solution"=(1.2)(1 "g/ml")#

#rho " solution"=1.2"g/ml")# - To find the volume:

#V=m/(rho)# , plug in values

#V=(185cancelg)/(1.2cancel(g)/"ml"# - The
#V=154 ml#
