First it is 40g/mol for NaOH which you can write as 0.04kg per mole
 I want 100 ml aq with 0,400 mol/kg
what is it?
are you using commas in place of decimal?
please post question again accurately if you want help

Actually, I have found the answer to my problem, which was quite simple (given I'd not do it at 12:00). The comas are from the French unit system in which we do not use dots to represents decimals. Sorry for the confusion, I'll try to be clearer if I do post again! Good evening

The 40.00g/mol represents the significative numbers
