$\text{Garbage in must equal garbage out}$.

#### Explanation:

$A l B {r}_{3} \left(s\right) + 3 K \left(s\right) \rightarrow A l \left(s\right) + 3 K B r \left(s\right)$

This is actually a redox reaction; however, it does illustrate the required stoichiometry. The given reaction is certainly balanced with respect to mass and charge.
