390 mL of a 5% solution.

Enough 75% solution to satisfy the equation.

Desired result = 10%

Equation

C_75% * V + C_5% * 390 = C_10% * (390 + V)

Solution75% * V + 5%*390 = 10% (390 + V)

75% * V + 0.05* 390 = 0.1(390 + V)

0.75 * V + 19.5 = 39 + 0.1 * V

0.75 * V – 0.1*V + 19.6 = 39

0.65 * V + 19.5 = 39

0.65*V = 39 – 19.5

0.65*V = 19.5

V = 19.5 / 0.65

V = 30 mL of 75% alcohol
