Here is what I need help with -

Problem - I have a liquid solution which is 7.9% active ingredient. I need to dilute this solution so that I end up with a solution which is 0.05% active ingredient.

Question - How many ounces of water do I add to 1 ounce of my solution to end up with a 0.05% mixture?

If my math is correct, I am coming up with 158 ounces of water to 1 ounce of solution. But this just doesn’t look right.

Your help is needed since I'm too embarrassed to call Ms Johnson since it has been 38 years.
