Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Shadow on Sunday, January 13, 2013 at 10:30pm.

I need to write the total ionic equation for this equation.

Copper(ii)sulfate + iron = iron(iii)+ copper.

Won't it be Cu2+ + SO4-2 + Fe = Fe3+ + Cu ?
The answer key say
3Cu2+ + 3SO4-2 + 2Fe = 2Fe3+ + 3SO4-2 + 3Cu

Where did they get the sulfate for the product from? Didn't the words equation say "iron(iii)+ copper."? Thanks
