The solubilities at 10 °C and 50 °C are 14 g/100 mL water and 6 g/100 mL water, respectively.


I presume that your instructor is asking you to interpret a solubility graph like the one below.

(From Prairie South)

Cerium(III) sulfate is one of the few solids that is less soluble in water at higher temperatures.

It appears that 100 g of water will dissolve 14 g of the salt at 10 °C and only 6 g
at 50 °C.
