We are being asked to find the volume of 1.00 M Fe(NO3)3 is needed to make a 1.00 L of 0.250 M solution.

When we are adding water (or solvent) to a solution to decrease its concentration, we are diluting the solution.

When dealing with dilution we will use the following equation:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{M}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{{\mathbf{V}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{M}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{V}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}}$

M1 = initial concentration
V1 = initial volume
M2 = final concentration
V2 = final volume
