Answer:558.036 lb

Step-by-step explanation:Let x is the amount of the sea water to collect 125 lb of sea salt

As given: 64 lb/ft³ has 0.0035 dissolved salt by weight

So the formula to find out the amount of the sea water is:

64 lb/ft³ * 0.0035 *

xft³ = 125 lb<=> x = [tex]\frac{125}{64*0.035}[/tex] = 558.036 lb

Hope it will find you well.
