Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Ka = [C6H5-O-] [H3O+]/[C6H5OH] (equilibrium concentrations)
[C6H5-O-] = [H3O+] and [C6H5OH] = 0.457 M - [C6H5-O-]

[C6H5-O-]²/(0.457 - [C6H5-O-]) = 1.29E-010

x²/(0.457-x) = 1,29E-010

x~~3.55912x10^-6 M = [C6H5-O-]

percent ionized: 3.55912x10^-6*100/0.457 = 0,0036 %


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
