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

Calculate the final concentration of the solution.
