  1. The equation is KHP + NaOH ==> H2O + KNaP

    moles NaOH = M x L = ??
    Convert moles NaOH to moles KHP. That is 1:1 ratio (from the coefficients in the balanced equation) so moles KHP = moles NaOH.
    grams KHP = moles KHP x molar mass KHP
    %KHP = (grams KHP/0.847)*100 = ??
    Note: Your post has only three significant figures in the 0.847 g sample; therefore, you cannot give an answer to four s.f. (unless of course that was 0.8470). A second note, and more troubling, is that you provided no molarity for the NaOH. Without that you can't work the problem anyway.
