Predicting whether a precipitate forms based on the solubility product and concentrations.

Describe how you would predict whether a precipitate will form when two solutions are mixed. Start with the minimum information needed and then show how you would make the prediction. Assume a constant temperature of 298 K and that the volumes of the two solutions are additive.
