1. This is simple Stoichiometry problem

Write down PbI2 -> Pb2+ + 2I-

Therefore

Ksp = [Pb2+][I-]^2

From the stoich you can derive that

Ksp = Cs(2Cs)^2 = 4Cs^3

Hence Cs = (Ksp/4) ^ 1/3

Then multiply the Molar Weight to get grams / Liter unit that you like

2. The second problem is common ion effect

First see is the added ion concentration more than or less than your Cs.

0.1 seems to be >>>> than Cs so common ion will happen

Ksp = Cs'(0.1)^2 = 0.01Cs'

Hence

Cs' = Ksp/0.01

Then just multiply by Molar weight again to convert to g/L units .

Note use the Molar Weight of PbI2 !!!!
