Solution Preview

This is a straightforward problem based on the relative solubility of compounds.
1) First, you have to identify the ions that are formed in each of the nine solutions. For example, BaCl2 dissolves to give Ba2+ and 2Cl- ons.
Repeat this process for the other eight solutions.

2) List all the positive ions in one column (Hint there should be 5) and all the negative ions in another column (How many are there?)

3) Now by combining each of the positive ions with each of the negative ions, you have all the possible reactions. ...
