ReportAnswer #1
Initial moles of CH3COOH present in 52.0 mL of 0.35 M is :
      52.0 mL * ( 1 L / 1000 mL ) * 0.35 M = 0.018 mol
Initial  moles of NaOH present in 23.0 mL of 0.40 M is :
      23.0 mL * ( 1 L / 1000 mL ) * 0.40 M = 9.2*10^-3 mol
       CH3COOH   + NaOH -------> CH3COONa   + H2O
I(mol)   0.018           9.2*10-3                              0                 -
C(mol  - 9.2*10-3    -9.2*10-3                      +9.2*10-3    
           -----------------------------------------------------------
E(mol) 8.8*10-3                0                          9.2*10-3
           CH3COOH   -------> CH3COO-   + H+
Moles:     8.8*10-3                       9.2*10-3     
                   Ka  = [CH3COO- ] [ H+] / [CH3COOH ]
                [ H+] = Ka  [CH3COOH ] / [CH3COO- ]
                          = (1.8*10-5 ) (8.8*10-3  ) / (9.2*10-3  )
                          = 1.7*10-5
       pH = -log[H+] = 4.77
