The florist then adds 100. mL of the diluted solution to each plant. How many moles of nitrogen atoms will each plant receive? Solve this exercise without using a calculator."

The solutions manual used 3.0 L of water as their final volume, but if the florist is "adding" 3.0 L of water to the initial volume which was "1.0 L of water", shouldn't the final volume be 4.0 L of water and not 3.0 L of water?
