    \[BaCl _{2} + Na _{2}CO _ {3 } \rightarrow BaCO _{3} + NaCl\] This is your equation right?

    So if that is ur equation NaCl will have 2 in front. As u can see in the reactants side (left side) There are 2 molecules of Na and 2 molecules of Cl. Those molecules can't be destroyed or taken off right? So both the molecules should participate in the reaction resulting in 2 NaCl. Because as we can see NaCl has one molecule from each cl and Na. I hope u are getting what I'm trying to say.
