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

Copper(II) bromide (CuBr2) is a chemical compound. It is used in photographic processing as an intensifier and as a brominating agent in  organic synthesis.

so solubility means :

The solubility of a substance fundamentally depends on the physical and chemical properties of the solute and solvent as well as on temperature, pressure and the pH of the solution.

so when we mix water and copper I bromide in ethyl acetate , then we get some  products.

then we have to find Ksp of water and copper I bromide according to the portions they are mixed.


Ksp = (definition of solubility product)

 


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