Actual Yield of Ethanol Help!

I have a hw problem about calculating the actual yield of ethanol. The problem is, I am very confused and don't know where to start?

The problem is:

Calculate the actual yield of ethanol in grams. Use the volume of ethanol from the simple distillation and its percent by volume for this calculation.

The volume of ethanol collected was 50 mL, however it's mass was 9.573g, and it's percent by volume was 36.2%.

I am not sure how to proceed with this problem. I know actual yield is theoretical * % yield, but how do I find this value using only those numbers?

Thank you!
