'What Salt will Form' and Reaction Type Problems

When each of the following strong acid/strong base reactions take place. What salt would form with these and how would you find out.
HCl (aq) + KOH (aq) -->
RbOH (aq) + HNO (aq) -->
HClO4 (aq) + NaOH (aq) -->
HBr (aq) + CsOH (aq) -->

How to Balance the following equations that describe combustion reactions.
C2H6 (g) + O2 (g) + CO2 (g) + H2O (g)
C4H10 (g) + O2 (g) + CO2 (g) + H2O (g)
C6H14 (g) + O2 (g) + CO2 (g) + H2O (g)

How to identify the following unbalanced reactions equations as the following categories precipitation, acid-base or oxidation.

K2SO4 (aq) + Ba(NO3)2(aq)-->BaSO4(s) + KNO3 (aq)
HCl(aq) +Zn(s) --> H2(g) +ZnCl2(aq)
HCl (aq) + AgNO3(aq) -->HNO3(aq) + AgCl(s)
HCl(aq) +KOH(aq) --> H2O (l) + KCl (aq)
Zn(s) + CuSO4 (aq) --> ZnSO4(aq) + Cu
NaH2PO4(aq)+NaOH(aq) --> Na3PO4(aq) + H2O(l)
Ca(OH)2(aq) + Mg(s) --> CaSO4(s) + H2o(l)
ZnCl2(aq) + Mg(s)-->Zn(s) +MgCl2(aq)
BaCl2(aq) + H2SO4(aq) --> BaSO4(s) + HCl(aq)

Solution Summary

The solution shows how to decide which salt will form when an acid and base are added together.
