Problem

The scene at right depicts a saturated solution of MCl 2(s) in the presence of dilute aqueous NaCl; each sphere represents 1.0 × 10−6 mol of ion, and the volume is 250.0 mL (solid MCl2 is shown as green chunks, M 2+ is blue, and Cl is yellow; Na+ ions and water molecules are not shown). 

(b) If M(NO3)2(s) is added, is there an increase, decrease, or no change in the number of Cl  particles? In the Ksp? In the mass of MCl 2(s)?
