| Let the mass of added potassium sulfate be equal to x g. Then the mass of the resulting solution will be equal to (270 + x) g, and the mass fraction of potassium sulfate can be expressed as:

100% ∙ x / (270 + x) = 10%

x / (270 + x) = 0.1

10x = 270 + x

9x = 270

x = 30

Thus, the mass of potassium sulfate to be added is 30 g.
