    i think they would break down as follows Lead Nitrate Pb2+ 2(NO3) KCl = K+ Cl- KOH = K+ (OH)- NaCH3COO = guessing Na+ CH3- COO CaBr2 = Ca^2+ Br-

    The answer is 3 but i don't know how to figure this out. I would have guessed 1 because CaBr2 is the only 2Br- to strip away the2 (NO3)

    NaCH3COO would dissociate in to Na+ and CH3COO- (which is the conjugate base of acetic acid) you're finding out which solution would precipitate Pb^2+ out so look at solubility tables, i'm pretty sure Pb(OH)2 is insoluble maybe PbBr2

    ok on the soulubility chart provided exceptions are Br- Cl- I- and (SO4)2-

    does that mean PbBr would be insouluble so that would be a precpitate?

    PbBr2 ..since Pb is 2+ and Cl is 1- .. balance out charges the chart i have says PbBr2, PbCl2 and Pb(OH)2 are insoluble

    so yeah, only the third one would not cause a precipitate

    and (OH)- is insoulible with no exceptions for Pb so that would make 3 this makes sense now, i was trying to have Pb2+ left over after froming something witht the rest of the ions.

    so all but the NaCH3COO

    yeah, thats all you can do to show they will precipitate. if you were given more information (like the concentration of the other solutions) you could've shown they precipitate using their Ksp's
