[latex]Concentration\ of\ substance=\frac{constituent}{mixture}*100\%\\\\ 1.\\ constituent=1kg\\ mixture=1kg+3l=4kg\\\\ Concentration=\frac{1}{4}*100\%=25\%\\\\ 2.\\ constituent=2\ pounds=2\ pints\\ mixture=7\ pints\\\\ Concentration=\frac{2}{7}*100\%=28,6\%\\\\ Scientist\ B\ made\ more\ concentrated\ salt\ solution.
