There is $0.008$ moles of $\ce{PO4^{3-}}$ ions. So the total number of negative charges is $3·0.008 = 0.024$ moles. This number must be equal to the number of positive charges. Let's check it. As there is also $0.012 $ mol $\ce{T^{x+}}$, the total number of positive charges is : $\pu{x · 0.012 = 0.024}$ moles. As a consequence x = $2$, and the unknown ion $\...
