Let's say the total solution is 100 liters. 50 of the liters is glucose and 50 is water. We want to make the 50 glucose equal to 10% of the total solution. For that to happen, we need to make the total solution 500 liters (50 of the 500 would be a 10% solution). So we add 400 liters of water to the original 100 liter (50/50) solution.

Take the total number of units and multiply by 4. Add that much in water.

If there is a 10 percent glucose solution on one side of a semipermeable membrane and 5 percent salt solution on the other side what will most likely happen to the flow of water?

the water would sit below the solution because the glucose is more dense then water.
