b. It increases the phosphate ion concentration, forcing the equilibrium to the right.

c. It decreases the phosphate ion concentration, forcing the equilibrium to the left.

d. It increases the phosphate ion concentration, forcing equilibrium to the left.

e. It decreases the calcium ion concentration, forcing the equilibrium to the right.

f. It increases the calcium ion concentration, forcing the equilibrium to the right.

g. It decreases the calcium ion concentration, forcing the equilibrium to the left.

h. It increases the calcium ion concentration, forcing equilibrium to the left.
