How much distilled water do i use to cut my tap water?

I would like to use distilled water to cut my tap water to bring my in tank KH to around 3-4. I don't have a target for my GH but i am aware that it will go down as well.

Here are my tank specs with the addition of Co2 -
pH 6.4-6.8 it's hard to tell from the color chart.
KH 7d
GH 8d

Here is the tap water left out over night.
pH 7.6
KH 7d
GH 8d

I will be cutting the water for my 10 gallon tank. I heard it can be done but how much of each to use is what i need.

I will recheck my kH and Gh tomorrow after the has set out over night. Since it has been a while since i last tested these two.

Can anyone help?
