What is the percent ionization of a 1.38 mol/L weak acid if its Ka = 2.7 x 10-6? Answer to two (2) decimal places.

I know what steps to use but have difficulty applying them to the quesiton

Can someone please complete the question for me since there are about 10 other questions just like this one on my practice sheet.

Step one is to use an ICE grid.

Step two is to use an ionization equation.

Step three is to use the equilibrium constant expression.

Step four is to solve the equation.

Step five is to use the quadratic.

Step six is to determine percent ionization by dividing ionized over initial concentration
