    1.006 what?
    4.7 what?
    3.00 what?

    1.006 g/ml
    4.7% acetic acid by mass
    3.00L

    4.70% by mass means 4.70 g/100 g solution.
    Use density to convert 100 g solution to mL. That's about 99.4 cc; therefore you have 4.70 g acetic acid in 99.4 cc.
    Convert that to g acetic acid in 3000 cc.
    4.70 g x (3000/99.4) = ?
