You are given two aqueous solutions containing different ionic solutes (Solution A and Solution B). What if you are told that Solution A has a greater concentration than Solution B by mass percent, but Solution B has a greater concentration than Solution A in terms of molality? Is this possible? If not, explain why not. If it is possible, provide example solutes for A and B, and justify your answer with calculations.
