C1v1=c2v2
.25×1000=.70x
X={25×1000/70)
=357.1ml
So we need 357.1 ml of 70% to make 1000ml of 25%
So 1000-357.1=642.9ml

HOW DID YOU GET : "of 1ML and 9 ML" ?

here you go
by: Toman

687.5mL

70% - 25% = 55 parts sterile water

0% - 25% = 25 parts 70% solution

total volume 80 parts 1000mL

55/80 x 1000 = 687.5mL sterile water
