Please see the attached file.

18. Write the reaction
MgCl2 + AgNO3 = 2AgCl + Mg(NO3)2

Molecular weights:
MgCl2 = 24 + 71 = 95 (g/mol)
AgNO3 = 108 + 14 + 48 = 170 (g/mol)
Number of mole of MgCl2 = 0.12*0.95/95 = 0.0012 (mol)
So the number of mole of AgNO3 required to react is also 0.0012 mol.

Volume of ...

Ksp and Solubility: Concentrations of Ions in Solution

What are the concentrations of each of the ions in a saturated solution of PbBr2, given the Ksp of PbBr2 is 2.1 x 10^-6?

I get stuck in solving this question when I get to the equation
4(x^3)=2.1 x 10^-6 and I don't know how to get to the answer
x = 8.07 x 10 ^-3 M which is supposedly the concentration of Pb 2+.

Really the problem is arithmetic here because I am required to do this problem by hand and can not use a calculator.
