A sample of an ionic solid is dissolved in 1.00 kg of water. The freezing point of the water is -0.01 °C. If three times the mass of ionic solid is dissolved in 1.00 kg of water and the resulting freezing point of the solution is -0.09 °C, which of the following would be possible formulas for the solid: MX, MX2, or MX3, where M represents a metal cation and X an anion with a 1- charge? Explain your reasoning.
