Do common salt and sodium hydroxide chemically react together and if they react what do they form on reacting?

They don't react.


Usually what happens in a reaction with two compounds is double replacement (the partner switch), where the anions and cations switch.

for example:

#KBr + AgNO_3 => KNO_3 + AgBr#

common table salt is NaCl. So if NaCl and NaOH go through double replacement, the end result will be the same because they both have Na as a cation.
