Can anyone tell me why the answer that I got here is not correct?

Pb(s) + AgNO3(aq)

yields Ag(s) + PbNO3(s)

• Chemistry -

Pb will go to lead(II), valence +2

• Chemistry -

Is it still a single displacement reaction? can you walk me through predicting the reaction and then balancing it. I'm lost.

• Chemistry -

I don't think you picked up on the problem from the answer by Bob P. You have the wrong formula for lead(II) nitrate. It is written Pb(NO3)2
