## The Attempt at a Solution

I initially thought of something like m1v1=m2v2, but that doesn't seem to really work in this case :/?

Let V = volume of 2M HCl to add. Final solution volume to make is V+5 liters.

Moles of HCl in final prepared solution are 2*V + 6*5 moles.

Analyze the situation and construct the needed equation and solve.
