Please read forum rules.

Calculate pH, assume [A-] = [H+] and use degree of dissociation definition.

Stop. That's what happens when you do three things at the same time. pH is given. Will take a look later.

Please don't post similar questions in separate threads - and please read forum rules.

Edit: OK. Find A/HA ratio from dissociation constant definition, express ionization degree with A and HA, then you need some simple math to get rid of A and HA (only their ratio is present in the final expression).

Also, read this link:

Well, when it comes to links, pH calculation lectures are much more complete :)
