# Question #7037e

$16 A l \left(s\right) + 3 {S}_{8} \left(s\right) \to 8 A {l}_{2} {S}_{3} \left(s\right)$
See above. Aluminum(III) Sulfide is $A {l}_{2} {S}_{3}$ which is also solid at standard temperature and pressure.
We know that the suflide ion has a charge of $2 -$, and we are told aluminum has a charge of $3 +$. The above formula is the only option.
