Answer:

Should not you tell us?

Explanation:

#4KOH(aq) + 2BaCl_2(aq) rarr 4KCl(aq) + 2Ba(OH)_2#...or more simply....

#2KOH(aq) + BaCl_2(aq)rarr 2KCl(aq) + Ba(OH)_2(s)darr#

And if you add up the product masses, these are precisely and necessarily equal to the reactant masses, i.e. #320.5*g#.. All chemical reactions obey this principle.

For each equation, #"garbage out equals garbage in"#...i.e mass is conserved, and also charge is conserved....
