is the solubility of a salt affected by how much salt you add to a solution?

Hey. Will a saturated solution of a salt at a constant temperature and pressure have a constant amount of dissolved salt even as you add more salt? Let us pretend that acid-base or metal-complex reactions don't happen.

Saturated means - no more can dissolve, so yes, concentration of dissolved salt doesn't change when you add more solid.
