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

Here we can calculate the moles of ca(No3)2 moles

it is 0.111 mol/dm^3* 533*10^(-3)dm^3

=0.059163 moles

Then you can see , for every mole of Ca(No3)2 has two moles of No3^-

Then number of moles of No3^- =2*0.059163


                                                  =0.118 moles

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