  1. Let's call acetic acid HAc.
    5.00% HAc by mass means 5.00 g HAc in 100 g solution.
    moles in 5.00 g = 5.00/molar mass HAc. You can do the math.

    The 100 g soln is made of 5.00 g HAc 95.0 g H2O. moles H2O in 95.0 g H2O = 95.0/molar mass H2O. You can do the math.

    mole fraction HAc = moles HAc/total moles where total moles = moles HAc + moles H2O.
