Homework Statement:
Calculate the solubility of CaC2O4 in a 0.001M solution of Na2C2O4 buffered to pH equal to 4
Relevant Equations:
Kps=(Ca+2).(C2O4-2)
Data:
##
pK_{ps} , pKa_{1} , pKa_{2}
##

Could you guide me to start solving?
Thank you!

Hint: only concentration of (COO-)2 counts.

First, set up and ICE table for the chemical equation of ##\mathrm{CaC_2O_4}## and think about what the initial concentration of the relevant dissociated ion is.

Taking into account I is zero I don't think that will help much.

Which is in your Relevant Equation. So can start. Wonder what's taking?

Yes. My mistake. My brain completely skipped over important parts of the question.
