I need help with writing molecular equations.
The original question states, "Write the balanced net ionic equation that occurs when copper (II) chloride and potassium phosphate react in water." The first step is to write the balanced molecular equation, and that is what I struggle with. I will type the equation that I have so far in the comments.

\[Cu ^{2+}Cl _{2}^{-} + K _{3}^{+} PO _{4}^{2-}\rightarrow Cu(PO _{4}) + K _{3} Cl _{2}\]

Close, but phosphate is \[PO _{4}^{3-}\]
making your potassium incorrect also.

A molecular equation shows no ion (charges).
