sodium sulfite solubility question
I have a large exam tomorrow in chemistry and know how to do most problems on my practice test except these two
If the solubility of sodium sulfite (Na2SO3) is 27(g/100g water) at 20 degrees celcius, what is the mass percent concentration of the saturated solution of Na2SO3 at 20 degrees celcius?
How many grams of Na2SO3 * 7H2O is soluble in 50g water at 20 degrees celcius?
the answer to the first question is 21 and the 2nd answer is 37 but for the life of me I cant figure out how they got these answers.

For the first one, mass percent of Na2SO3 = mass of Na2SO3 / total mass of solution. If you assume you have a saturated solution with 27 g Na2SO3, what's the total mass of the solution? Then you'll need this result for the next one.
The second one is a little tricky since you're working with the added water in Na2SO3·7H2O. Use the equation for finding the mass percent of Na2SO3 while using x for the moles of Na2SO3 and Na2SO3·7H2O; this mass percent of Na2SO3 must be equal to the mass percent you got for the first problem.
