25 mL of that ibuprofen solution.

Work Step by Step

1. Write the dilution expression, and solve for the initial volume $(V_1)$ $C_1V_1 = C_2V_2$ $$V_1 = \frac{C_2V_2}{C_1} $$ 2. Substitute the values and calculate the initial volume: $$V_1 = \frac{(100. \space mL)(2.0 \space \% (m/v))}{8.0 \space \% (m/v)}$$ $$V_1 = 25 \space mL$$
