Answer:

#"NiCl"_2("aq)" + "NaOH(aq)"##rarr##"Ni(OH)"_2"(s)" + "NaOH(aq")#

Explanation:

This is a double replacement (double displacement) reaction in which the cations and anions of the two reactants switch places. It can be represented by the following example:

AX + BY#rarr#AY + BX

Where A and B are cations and X and Y are anions.

We can now predict the products of this reaction.

#"NiCl"_2("aq)" + "NaOH(aq)"##rarr##"Ni(OH)"_2"(s)" + "NaOH(aq")#
