###### FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the mole fraction of CH3OH in an aqueous solution that is 12.0 m in CH3OH

Recall that molality is the ratio of the moles of solute and the mass of solvent (in kilograms)

In other words:

Mole Fraction (X) relates the moles of solute and solvent within a solution:
