    According to Lavoisier and the Law of Conservation of Mass, in a chemical reaction the sum of the mass of the reactants has to be equal to the sum of the mass of the products. 28 g lead nitrate + 12g potassium iodide = 14g lead iodide + "X" g potassium nitrate Isolate the "X" that is the answer of your problem
