# Aqueous solutions of ammonium chloride and lead nitrate produce leadon chloride precipitate and aqueous ammonium nitrate. What type of reaction is this? How do you balance the equation?

$\text{2NH"_4"Cl(aq)"+"Pb(NO"_3)_2"(aq)}$$\rightarrow$$\text{2NH"_4"NO"_3"(aq)"+"PbCl"_2"(s)}$
The general equation is $\text{AX"+"BY}$$\rightarrow$$\text{AY"+"BX}$, where A and B are cations and X and Y are anions.
