To calculate for the molar concentration of the brine solution we need to use the expression for molarity.

`Molarity = (mol e s solute)/(volume of Solution)`

`Molarity = (mol e s NaCl)/(Liters of solution)`


Solute = 225 grams Sodium chloride (NaCl)

Volume of the solution = 4.00 L

`Mol es NaCl = (225 grams NaCl) * (1 mol e NaCl)/(58.44 grams NaCl)`

`Mol es NaCl = 3.85 mol es NaCl`


`Molarity = (mol e s NaCl)/(Liters of solution)`

`Molarity = (3.85 mol es NaCl)/(4.00 L)`

`Molarity = 0.962 M -> answer`
