Answer:

#"Ferric sulfate"# has a formula of #Fe_2(SO_4)_3#

Explanation:

How did I formulate this? Well, I have ferric ion, #Fe^(3+)#, and the sulfate ion, #SO_4^(2-)#.

Clearly the salt is electrically neutral, so I take #2# of the ferric ion, #"6 positive charges"#, and #3# of the sulfate ion, #"6 negative charges"#.
