Answer:

Approx. #30.0*mL#

Explanation:

We require a #200.0*mL# volume of #0.880*mol*L^-1# #NaOH(aq)#.

#"Moles of NaOH"=200.0xx10^(-3)Lxx0.880*mol*L^-1=0.1760*mol#.

We have #6.00*mol*L^-1# #NaOH# available, and thus #(0.1760*mol)/(6.00*mol*L^-1)# #=# #0.0293*L# of the original solution must be diluted to a #200.0*mL# volume.
