    wt-wt % just means that whatever solute you're dissolving is x% of the total weight of the solution. So for that problem, you assume 10grams of solution of which 10% (1 gram) is Pb(NO3)2. The rest (9grams) would be water. Then you just use the standard mole fraction eqn to find it using those values. I believe it works out to .006
