Homework Help: Chemistry

If acetic acid is the only acid that vinegar contains [Ka = 1.8*10-5] , calculate the concentration of acetic acid in the vinegar.

pH of vinegar is 3.20

First I got the antilog of the pH given, which turned out to be 6.309E-4.
Then I did [(6.309E-4)^(2)]/(1.8E-5)to get .022113, but when I typed in that answer I was told to check my calculations because I might be missing a 'term.' I have no idea what to do after this point.
