The basic defintion of mole fraction is the fraction of molecules of solute divided by total molecules.

molecules solute (assume 1 liter solution)= avag#*3.05

masswater= 964g-3.05*molmassEthanol)

molecules water=masswater/molmasswater * avag#

mole fraction= moleculessolute/totalmolecules * 100

thank you!!
