What stoichiometric concentration of the indicated substance is required to obtain an aqueous solution with the pH value shown below?
aniline (C6H5NH2) for PH of 9.05

I converted pH to pOH so pOH=4.98
[OH-] =1.122*20^-5

C6H5NH2 + H2O --------> C6H5NH3+ + OH-
I: a N/A 0 0
C: -x N/A +x +x
E: a-x N/A x x

Kb=[C6H5NH3+][OH-]/[C6H5NH2 ]
4.2*10^-10 = x^2/(a-x)

Substituting in the equilibrium values from the ICE table and rearranging I found "a" which is the concentration of C6H5NH2 to be 0.299M but this is the wrong answer. Does anyone know what I did wrong?
