First the M stands for Molarity. Molarity is defined as the number of moles of solute per liter of solution. Thus the equation for molarity is
Molarity = moles of solute / liters of solution
In your sample problem you are givent the molarity (1.45M) and the volume (it is necessary to convert 555mL into .555 L). Plug into the molarity equation and solve for moles of solute (NaCl in this case).
Finally, convert the moles of NaCl into grams using the formula mass of NaCl (58.5 g/mol).
