The Best Answer for How do you finish this reaction and what is the precipitate?

you are probably missing all of the products

NaCl + Hg2(C2H3O2)2 --> is a double replacement reaction meaning that the cations will switch places

2NaCl + Hg2(C2H3O2)2 --> 2NaC2H3O2(aq) + Hg2Cl2(s)

according to solubility rules, all compounds containing acetate are soluble. also, all compounds containing Cl are solube EXCEPT Hg, Ag, Pb.
