The concentration of the solution would be 0.64 mol/L.

**Method 1**

One way to calculate the concentration of a diluted solution is to use the formula

Solve the formula for

**Method 2**

Remember that the number of moles is constant

This makes sense. You are increasing the volume by a factor of about 7. So the concentration should decrease by a factor of about 7.
