The initial volume is

#### Explanation:

Whenever you are dealing with a dilution, (going from a higher concentration to a lower concentration), use the equation below:

Let's determine our known and unknown variables:

- Initial Molarity
- Final Volume
- Final Molarity

- Initial Volume

Next, we rearrange the equation to solve for

Plug in the known values and solve for your unknown:

Thus,
