Homework Help: Chemistry

Hydroxylapatite, Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2, has a solubility constant of Ksp = 2.34 × 10-59, and dissociates according to

Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2(s) --> 10Ca2+(aq) + 6PO43-(aq) + 2OH-(aq)

Solid hydroxylapatite is dissolved in water to form a saturated solution. What is the concentration of Ca2 in this solution if [OH–] is somehow fixed at 7.30 × 10-6 M?

I am confused as to how to solve for x with such large exponents
