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

Part a

moles in 1.2 L =?

= 1.2L/1L * 0.8 MOLES = 0.96 moles

mass  in grams = moles * molar mass

=0.96 moles * 97.994 g/ mole = 94.07424 g

Part b

moles in 50 ml = ?

= 50/1000 * 3.5 = 0.175 moles

0.175 moles will be in what volume of 0.8 M H3PO4

= 0.175 mole/0.8 * 1000

= 218.75 ml
