    Silver Phosphate, Ag3PO4, is an ionic compound with a solubility product constant Ksp of 206 x 10 ^ - 18. Calculate the solubility of this compound in:

    a) pure water

    b) 0.2 mol L-1 or 0.2 M Na3PO4

    I was able to solve part a, I got the solubility of silver phosphate in water to be 1.76 x 10 ^ -5 M. I am not sure how to solve part b.
