  1. Let's call this BNH2 to save some typing.
    ..........BNH2 + HOH --> BNH3^+ + OH^-
    I........0.223.............0.......0
    C.........-x...............x.......x
    E.......0.223-x............x.......x
    But you know x = 9.7E-6. Evaluate 0.223-x and substitute into the Kb expression and solve for Kb.
    Kb = (BNH3^+)(OH^-)/(BNH2)
