chemistry. please help!!!

A voltaic cell is constructed based on the following reaction and initial concentrations:
Fe2+ (0.0050M) + Ag+ (2.2M) -> Fe3+ (0.0050M) + Ag(s)
calculate [Fe2+] when the cell reaction reaches equilbrium
i'm so confused. please help. thank you!
Kc =[ Fe+3] / [Fe+2][Ag+]
You must be given the equilibrium constant or have access to enough information to calculated it. Since you have the initial concentrations of Fe^+2, Ag^+ and Fe^+3 with a known Kc, you can set up a table of data leadinf to an equation for changes in concentrations, that will lead to the equilibrium concentrations. I will not get into it with more info about the Kc.
