Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

.Kb = 0.512°C/m. of water

CHANGE in temperature = kb * Molarity

change in temperature = 0.152 * Molarity of solution


104-100 c = 0.152* M

4 Celcius = 0.152M

molarity of water  = 4/ 0.152 =  26.32

mass of water =  26.32 * 18 = 473.68g

mass of ethyl glycol = 1000g - 473.68 = 526.32g

% weight = 526.32g/1000g * 100% = 52.632%


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
