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

M_{1} = initial concentration

V_{1} = initial volume

M_{2} = final concentration

V_{2} = final volume

M_{1} = 3.5 M

V_{1} = ?

M_{2} = 0.20 M

V_{2} = 100 mL

An experiment calls for you to use 100 mL of 0.20 M HNO_{3} solution. All you have available is a bottle of 3.5 M HNO_{3}. How many milliliters of the 3.5 M HNO_{3} solution do you need to prepare the desired solution?
